Every year about this time, we’ve taken the girls to Joan’s Farm and Pumpkin Patch here in Livermore. They were only about 6 months old for their first visit, and Janet had to help them stay propped up against a few pumpkins. For the next couple years, the challenge in getting a good picture of them was mostly about getting them both to look up at the camera at the same time, preferably smiling. That’s still a challenge, but for the last few years the additional challenge has been just getting them to sit relatively still for more than a couple seconds. The pumpkin patch hasn’t changed much, although this year, thanks to the drought, we were struck by the lack of any green grass. Carolyn and Elizabeth, on the other hand, have changed wonderfully from year to year. See for yourself!
