That title today has a double meaning. First we have the cuteness of carroty goodness:

A boy and some punkins. Also doing his Lily Tomlin imitation. He really really liked the rocker, and it was kind of hard to persuade him to vacate it. The pumpkin display, on the other hand, didn't hold his interest t hat long--I think the hay bales tickled his legs. These pictures were taken at the Apple Farm, which is one of my very favorite places. And SLO is a great place to stop when you're heading to Monterey from L.A.--it's far enough to top off the tank, and of course lunch/dinner/breakfast at the Apple Farm is always a treat. No, they didn't pay me to say that!

Next part of AWW is this (with apologies to Dave Daniels, the originator of AWW):
and a view of the whole horse. (Taken outside of PF Chang's in Monterey, where we did NOT eat dinner that night since the wait was going to be over an hour and The Carrot was already fussy-hungry. California Pizza Kitchen had no wait and they bring the baby's food out pronto so he can start eating right away!)
Or as Col. Whozits on MASH used to say, that's one heckuva horse's patoot.
Some carrot-buns.

All together, now:

Cute buns! Hehe.

I actually really dig what the sculptor did with the horse...

That's Colonel Potter. I'm a MASH junkie big-time. Nice fake-out on the post title. I thought I was at Cabin Cove for a minute there! Then I saw the carrot. :)

dputiger beat me to it! Colonel Potter, portrayed by Harry Morgan. Waaaay back when, I actually worked on this 20th Century Fox show! I can't tell you how many scripts I had to check for legal purposes. Yikes! I like the horse at PF Changs better than Potter's horse in M*A*S*H!

The Carrot is turning into such a handsome little gentleman! Adorable photos.

And oh my gawd. A horse's heinie. You took a picture of a horse's heinie. What a crack up!

Late M*A*S*H fan so no extra enlightenment here.

Love a diapered butt in denim or corduroy! Foosh

I love the horse's patootie pics; how many looks did you get taking *that* photo?

Thanks for stopping by to humor my anti-prop 13 rant; it's really nice sometimes to know it's not just me! I am (clearly) all for windmill tilting, even if it just makes people look at you funny in the end.

Yup. That ranks an Awwwwwwwwwww! And then some. What a little cutie that Carrot be! I like carrots way more than pumpkins. There is no contest. None, whatsoever.

Carrot Carrot, what a handsome little imp he is. That has to be one of the best pictures of a toddler I have seen. Kudo's.

The horse buns are terrific. Not near as cute as carrot buns. I bet some passerby took a picture of you, taking a picture of the horse's arse. Now there is a visual image for you.
You are an imp too. (g)
The Carrot doesn't fall far from the tree.

PS I finally found the Forest Canopy pattern. Dawn had a link.

Now there is a piece of lacy stuff I think I can manage...
