Well, so here the story goes. We waited all day until Cooper was in just the right mood to go get his picture taken at the Agricenter Pumpkin Patch. He had been so smiley all day. Finally, the stars seemed aligned. So we dressed him up and raced up to the Agricenter to get the perfect picture. And wouldn't you know, as soon as we get out of the car, Cooper vomits all over his costume. No worries. Even though he seemed highly aggravated, we kept on with our plan. He became really fussy and wasn't digging this photo op. Doesn't he know this is his first Halloween and that Mommy has waited her whole life to have a little pumpkin? Obviously not. It is amazing what you will resort to to get the "perfect picture." I spotted a U-shaped gourd and thought I could lay him on it like a Boppy and get the greatest shot. Never mind the fact that it was hard and there were ants crawling around. We were on a mission. Well, we got a few pictures and then the unbelievbale happened. The battery died on the camera. Now those of you that know my husband, know that he is a camera/picture fanatic and always comes prepared. However, in the furor to get to the Agricenter, he left the camera bag at home with the extra batteries. So, not the day we had planned but a memorable one to say the least. And wouldn't you know, the cutest picture is one we got in our backyard before we left. Happy Halloween.
