I hope you are having a nice week so far!
I don't share a lot of our personal comings and goings on my blog, but every now and then I just can't resist, especially after our trip this past weekend to the pumpkin patch.
I don't know about you, but after I've been following a blog for some time I start to feel like I actually know the writer and I enjoy looking at little snapshots of their lives. Do you feel the same?
And while I love decorating for fall, that is by no means my favorite thing about the season. The days are so beautiful... I always forget until September arrives again... my household chores take a backseat because it's too nice to spend every minute indoors!
We (especially Jillian and I) have been anticipating the pumpkin patch trip for a while now. I really can't tell you how many times I've read the fall themed Berenstain Bears' books to Jillian the past month!
When we got off the wagon to venture out into the fields to pick our pumpkins, Jillian had picked up this beauty before we even knew it... I couldn't help but laugh when I turned around to give her picking instructions and found her holding the pumpkin up! "I found one, Mommy!"
And while taking a hay ride out into the patch may have been my favorite activity...
I think everyone else's was this huge slide. (Although I will say it was pretty fun... it's always nice to have an excuse to act like a kid again!)
It was a fun time and just one of the many things I have been looking forward to enjoying this fall. But really, even playing in the yard on a beautiful afternoon is something to soak in... my girls are growing up faster than I can blink. (smile)
What are you looking forward to this fall?
