Pump, pump, PUMPKIN patch

Ahh, the pumpkin patch. An annual tradition that started back in 2009. Not surprisingly, I went to two pumpkin patches this year. Since Steph couldn't make it the pumpkin patch outing hosted by Erin, she wanted to get her fix in sooner. So Merith and I graciously offered to join her. (Twist our arms, right?) We ventured out to the middle of nowhere in Carnation on a cloudy Saturday morning to pose with pumpkins, pick out our favorites for our doorsteps, take the mandatory jumping photos, have a bite to eat and ask strangers to put their kitten on a pumpkin for a mini-photo shoot... 

Oh wait, does that last one need some explanation? Well, the short of it is: someone spotted a kitten in a man's shirt pocket. A gravitational force pulled me toward the kitten and I asked him if I could pet her. (We learned his daughter named her Sprinkles!) Then Merith brought it to the next level and asked if we could put the kitten on a pumpkin to take photos of it. Bold, Merith, bold. But he and his wife kindly obliged! That's when I captured the moneymaker above. I'm thinking it's a prize winner, don't ya think?! If there are any kitty calendar creators out there, I take offers...

All in all, a fabulous fall outing. Pumpkin Patch 2.0 to come soon!

Four months later: The 4th of July!

After taking such a long blog break, it's hard to even know where to begin to catch up. So rather than be methodical about what to post, I'm just going to post whatever photos inspire me at the moment. Right now, with the weather cooling even more, I've been having dreams of summer. And what better summer event to reminisce than the 4th of July?

All of the usual suspects at this 4th - Samish Island, Knutzen family and their cabin, Steph/Mads/Kami, Joe, Mom, Dad and Kam on the firetruck in the parade, fireworks, good food, crazy fireworks, Maddie's patriotic jello shots and more. But the latest amazingly adorable addition to the 4th: Baby Lila! Kami's little bundle of joy who was only a little bump last year :)

So in no particular order, my 4th of July... 4 months later!

Queen's Bath

Let me tell you, when you have five months of pictures to share, it's really hard to know where to even start. So for now, I'll leave you with this photo Joe snapped of my admiring Queen's Bath. It was a little rough in the water that day, so we didn't get to go in, but it was just so pretty! I could have watched the waves crashing there all day. If you're ever in Kauai, be sure to check it out!

Honeymoon Teaser

Eventually I'll do an official honeymoon post, but for now I'll leave you with one of the many sunsets we witnessed in Kauai. It was pink, purple, orange, blue and yellow and the way it reflected off the water made your jaw drop.

Is there another place on earth that regularly has this good of sunsets daily?! I'd like to know, so I can add it to my dream travel list. Wouldn't that be amazing? A travel quest for the world's best sunset?! Oh yes, one can dream.

I'm baaaaaack!

Holy moly, it's been since July! Clearly, that's the longest I've gone since I started this little ol' blog back in 2009. I'd venture to say that 2013 has been one of the most eventful years, yet not well documented on Petes Speaks. (Speaking of, I'm technically no longer a Peterson, but I'll always be a Petes in the eyes of many. Or at least Maddie.) 

So for the next few months, I'll try to keep you posted on some things current and also catch you up with what's happened in the last three months. Like maybe the fact that I GOT MARRIED. Yeah, I'm pretty darn lucky.
