Pumpkin guts, anyone?Of the four seasons, I LOVE fall the best by far.

It's been a long, hot summer and the heat has finally broken.
We seized the opportunity over fall break to get out and enjoy the cool, crisp air.

We ran into one of Pat's reps with her new beautiful baby. Isn't he sweet! The girls thought he was great.
Matt, thoroughly engaged in this family-togetherness.
(with eyes rolling, and shoulders slouching, Megan pointed out that they were the only teenagers at the pumpkin patch)
Miyah soon learned why we all urged her to sit on top of the tire and hold onto the rope...she couldn't hold on and smiles soon turned to looks of sheer terror.
Tired legs...time to head home.


Pumpkin carving tip #1 for those who live in a warm climate:
Don't carve pumpkins two weeks before Halloween. All four of our pumpkins have decomposed on the porch and I never got pictures of them carved...mostly because I was busy for three hours carving Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Well, we had fun and the pumpkind seeds were great.
We borrowed a friend's truck to get a load of mulch and the kids thought it was great to get a ride around the neighborhood in the back....perfectly safe, I'm sure.

With the cooler weather, we were able to have a fire and s'mores!

I love the line,"Matt, thoroughly engaged in this family-togetherness." It's great you got him to come at all! The pictures are wonderful. I don't live in a warm place but I'm saving my pumpkin carving until this weekend. They really get bad fast here too!
