there are bags of apples in the fridge, and bright orange pumpkins on the porch.
This has become my favorite season of the year. The bright colors, cool nights, warm days, blue skies, and the seasonal activities. We have formed a couple of traditions since the children have been born. One of them is to go apple picking, which we did last weekend with our mini-church. As an extra bonus, my sisters and their families also joined us. We have been enjoying apple pie, apple sauce, and just plain, crispy apples since then.
Yesterday after church we first went to brunch and then to the pumpkin patch with Ed's family. In addition to the fun of finding our own pumpkins, there is a fall festival of sorts at the patch. The kids loved the pony and wagon rides, but I think their favorite part was listening to the band and jumping along, across, and over the hay bale seats.
