Of Twins and Pumpkins

Sunday afternoon we went to the pumpkin patch.  I confess that this is one of the highlights of the year for me.  I adore the pumpkin patch.  The fall colors, the maze of corn, the animals.  All of it.  I took so many pictures I decided to break this into two posts.  So today I'll show you what the twins did at the patch.

Why, they checked out pumpkins of course!
And ate some dirt.  And some grass.
I had this idea that I would get cute pics of them in their Halloween costumes among pumpkins.
But it turned out to be a rather hot day, so I only took a couple of pics before changing them into cooler clothes. 

Let me tell you what it's like to try to get pictures of the two of them. 
Basically, you are always chasing someone down.
And someone is always looking the wrong way.
Or running away.
Or moving, dashing, crawling, crying.
It's a challenge! 

I try to keep up with them, I really do.
But even marathon training doesn't mean you'll be able to keep 14 month old twins in line! 

I know I'm not the fastest runner or anything (in fact, I'm really rather slow), but you'd think I could keep up with a couple of babies. 

Particularly cute babies, don't you think?

They are adorable! Maybe you need to score extra time at the local gym to build yourself up for the 'chase'!!! LOL! Love the pictures!

They are too stinking cute!! Love their little costumes!! Glad you got a few shots by the pumpkins with them wearing them.

I am sure it is hard to get both of them to sit still and look at the same time! lol

They are so cute.. They are busy bees. Trying to get a picture of both of them would be hard. I have a hard time just getting a picture of Ben and he is only one child. Even if you try and run ahead and get a doesn't work..
You got some really good pictures of them. Usually what I do is just start snapping and take lots of pictures ~ then I go back and pick and choose what I want.. Thank goodness my camera has a delete button. You did good~!

That looks so fun! And your little guys are adorable. I am the same, I love going to the pumpkin patch. And just fall in general! Hope you have a great week :)

we love the pumpkin patch too : )
and yes, the only thing that works for me to get both girls to look at the camera at the same time (and hopefully have smiles on their faces) is when i talk silly about poop -- STILL, at 4 1/2!! i can get some great photos that way, but never in public .....

Yes VERY cute! I can almost never get pictures of my girls all together either. It is always one looking down, one looking at the one looking down & one looking perfectly into the camera. LOL

They are precious! It does look like they move fast. JDaniel was sweating in his costume when we wore it to story time today. It is so warm here.
