Pumpkin Patch

We finally made it to a pumpkin patch this weekend. We like to go every year and take pictures of the kids to capture them and that time in our little family.

It always gets me thinking about time. How fast it goes. How important it is to document the little things. The milestones. The small habits and facial expressions. These moments in time. They are so precious and priceless.

Asher is in a goofy phase {I hope?} of thinking it's funny to make faces for pictures.

Bella is all over the place, flipping and tripping over every little bump in the ground. Or heck even every big bump.... like say a bench. You name it and our graceful Bella trips over it. The funny thing is she is so unphased by it. She can face plant it over a huge tree stump, stand up, brush herself off and smile like a pro.

Mia is starting to pull up on everything. She thinks she is pretty cute stuff.

I pretty much think she is too.  I love this picture of her.

Oh and my husband. My hunky husband. He never changes. He looks exactly the same as last year and the year before. And the year before that. I'm not sure that's fair?

At this point I was just happy to catch a few good pictures to document this time in our family. It was a  bit tough with Bella rolling in the hay, Asher jumping off pumpkins, and Mia revolting against her hat.
But I was ok with that. These pictures represent more than just the moment you see. They tell a story and I think it's important to tell it. It's so easy to look at someones life and think it's perfect. I also think it's easy to want to make it seem that way.

Our life is not perfect. And I wouldn't want it to be. It's in our imperfections, our flaws, our struggles and our honesty about them... that God can be more greatly shown.  

And that the blessings, the triumphs and the beauty of a small moment are that much more lovely and treasured.
