October 5~ Goodbye Summer


My son and I took a little trip to a local pumpkin patch today. It was a crisp fall day. As much as I hate to admit it, it's time to say goodbye to summer. I'll miss my morning glories. They're pretty much gone now, but I have my pictures.

At the pumpkin patch, we loaded up on pumpkins and squash, big and little. And I found some yummy jam there made with strawberries and honey.  I'm a sucker for anything that says "honey" on it.

Of course, Ryan had to slide down the straw slide face first and shoot the corn cannon multiple times. The cannon was pretty impressive, a real launcher.

I couldn't convince Ryan it was actually chilly out and he shouldn't wear shorts.  To compensate, or maybe just to make me feel better, he wore three shirts and a vest. Moms are stupid, duh.  I guess he's not ready to say goodbye to summer either.

I hope you are enjoying fall~


  1. We need to go to a pumpkin patch too, I think, but we jumped from summer to winter with snowfall yesterday. It seems to be warming up today so maybe it was just a "taste of things to come" so we would pay attention to the fall a little more.

  2. Well fudge. Now Ryan has a nasty, croupy cough. I know you don't get sick instantly, but running around outside in shorts for the last two days probably didn't help. Hope he's better by Halloween :)
