We are so lucky here in Portland to have farms all around the city for year-round weekend trips to pick berries, flowers, and enjoy fresh local produce, outdoor concerts, witness beautiful weddings, and families enjoying each other's company.

This past weekend it was my own family enjoying one another and bringing home varieties of squash, apples, avocados, pickled beans, cider, and of course, pumpkins for carving.

We enjoyed a little tour of the farm animals doing their signature barnyard performances right before our very eyes, like pages from a storybook.


But I think my favorite part of the trip was capturing little bits of magic with the camera,

about to fly

and watching others do the same.

photographers everywhere

I love having this blog and sharing bits of my life with you all. Thank you for all your comments and encouragement (and tips!) during these first two months!

What great fun! Addison keeps telling me that *his* pumpkin is still growing and will get to be as "big as my dad's!"

He loves those family outings.
