Peppy Parker picked a perfect pumpkin

Since mom had to work the other night, I told her I would keep daddy out of the house so she could get some rest.  I decided to take daddy to the Owens Big Orange Pumpkin Farm. I figured we could feed some goats, go on a hayride, pick some pumpkins, and overall enjoy the day together. I was right – it was a good day. We got to see horses, donkeys, chickens, and even got to feed some little billy goats – they sure were hungry. They were pushing each other out of the way to get them some oats.

Daddy and I also got to ride on a hayride which I’ve never done before, but I have to admit was kind of cool. Daddy said that if I sweet talked papa Dupree, he may make fix his tractor so that it was a hayride – I might have to be real nice to him. We also rode on a train made of barrels. Dad said he wasn’t quite sure how he got his rear end into the barrel and really wasn’t sure how he got it out of the barrel. Funny how there are no pics of that, huh.


Big Tex in da house

Well, the State Fair of Texas has come and gone. I haven’t been before because my folks don’t think I am quite ready to go just yet, but they did say that they think I will be ready next year.  After seeing the pics of mommy and the rides they have there, I’m not so sure. She said that she usually talks daddy into going on the roller coasters and scary rides with her, but this time Ricky was there so daddy and Nelda took a break and kept each other company on the ground. I guess when I get bigger and want to ride the scary rides, daddy can hold mommy’s purse while we ride.

It looks innocent enough....

....and then....


They don’t know me…

Came across this article on and it sure does sound familiar. My folks had me all over the web since I was born.

Thanks to the ubiquity of photo-sharing websites like Facebook, 82 percent of children in 10 Western countries have a digital footprint before the age of 2, according to a study by internet security firm AVG.

The U.S. led, with 92 percent of American children under 2 appearing in online pictures, the report said.

It’s the great pumpkin…

First thing first….I’m from Texas so I say pumkin – no second “p” – when I talk about those round orange things you make pie out of and carve for Halloween, but I will spell it correctly here for everyone else.

This weekend was a gorgeous weekend to be out and about. Grannie heard of an event Calloway Nursery was doing for kids so daddy and mommy decided to take me there. I got to design my own pumpkin. I didn’t carve it because my knife skills aren’t all that sharp these days, but I did get to glue stuff to the pumpkin and also color on it. It was all free so pretty cool.

The pics below are just me goofing around at the place. There were a couple of areas with a lot of pumpkins to pose with, but the lighting wasn’t great. That’s okay because I heard mommy telling daddy that we were going to go to the Dallas Arboretum to get some good pics and have fun – woohoo!

Hard at work...
