We took the boys to a local farm this morning to pick pumpkins and have ice cream for breakfast and pose for pictures and get up close to farm animals! I have all the photos to prove it. It was a picture perfect Fall day.
We went to a new orchard this year called "Milky Way Farms" and it was really adorable!
Ed brought the Tripod and we attempted a family photo - not bad for holding two squirmy kids!
One of these *could* show up on our Christmas card. Do me a favor and act surprised when you see it?
We lucked out when Brian said "No, thanks!" to the question, "Do you want to go on a hayride??" I really don't think Gavin could have handled it with his allergies. So we picked pumpkins for the front porch instead. Brian, as it turns out, is a great pumpkin picker. Who knew?
We also went to the neighborhood Halloween party. The boys had a lot of fun! Brian had candy for the very first time. Ever! Yes, ever! And he played lots of games and met some new neighbor friends and raided the snack table. I was reminded today why I'm SO grateful that I don't have food allergies to deal with anymore! But you won't be seeing ANY of those photos. I decided not to reveal the boys' costumes until Halloween. Sorry! I'm pretty sure it will be worth the wait.
