A Fall Frolic

Visit to make your own!

I ADORE Fall! I love cool days and crisp nights. I love the rich colors. I love the scent of wet leaves and woodfire smoke. I love hot apple cider and cinnamon candles. I love leaf piles and pumpkins. I love crockpot suppers. And I love jeans and hooded sweatshirts. Today is the perfect fall day. It is a sparkling, sunshiny, 68 degrees outside with just a breath of breeze. It's a yummy day, the perfect day for a trip to the pumpkin patch. We headed out to Schaffers and Collins Produce Farm first thing this morning. We enjoyed a hayride down a long, tree-lined lane that was all decked out for fall and Halloween. Our ride ended in the pumpkin field where the kids each tromped around to find two "perfect" pumpkins. The tractor pulled our hay wagon back to the farm where we saw farm animals, played on the slides, and ate ginormous corndogs and fresh squeezed lemonade for lunch. We're home again now, and two tired kiddos are sleeping soundly in their little beds. Our perfect fall day will conclude with an evening at our friends' Fall Festival at their house. Hot chili for dinner, and s'mores around the campfire to top it off! This could just be my favorite day of 2008!
