We've had a weekend of fall fun, starting with our visit to the pumpkin patch yesterday. This was a real, "pick-your-own" farm, so while the pumpkins were a bit picked over and mostly only green ones left, we had the fun of hunting for our pumpkins and paying next to nothing compared to the grocery store, which is where I get pumpkins when we don't get around to going anywhere else.
(Glad I had Kate wear orange, since there wasn't much else orange in the patch!)
We each picked out one that we liked, and then Kate chose a tiny little one for Baby Sister.pumpkin patch pics from her first fall—some of my favorite photos of her ever. (and I see Matt was wearing the same shirt. ha!)
Last night was the neighborhood Halloween party, Kate's first opportunity to wear her costume. Since we're not sure if Matt and I will be able to take her trick-or-treating on the 31st, we're glad there are a couple other events to enjoy. (And if we're out of commission this Wednesday for the church's Trunk-or-Treat, maybe we'll be able to take her on Halloween—or at least Matt will, while Claire and I stay put on the front porch, giving out candy.) So... dum-da-da-da... here is Kate, the cutest little witch!
(and our pumpkins, in shades of green)
Kate was an awesome stirrer.
Nala and Kate fed some goats.
Kate learned to weigh vegetables (though she still asks, "what time is it?" when she sees one of these scales in a book we read a lot!)
Kate enjoyed a sorghum lollipop (apparently sorghum and molasses are the same thing?)
and we took a mule-drawn buggy ride in a surry with the fringe on top!
What fall fun have you been having?
