It has been a beautiful fall here. One day the kids and I went to an apple orchard to get out for the day. But this was no ordinary apple orchard. They had goats, pigs, horses, chickens, and ducks to feed; a HUGE slide, a bouncing bubble-thing, a corn pool, rubber duck races, tractor trikes, an old school house, a hay ride, a mini maze as well as a FOUR acre corn maze (can you imagine getting lost in that?), and of course they had a ton of apple trees, and a pumpkin patch. Although we took advantage of the little store they had and got some fresh apples and cider doughnuts there, because all of the trees were pretty well gleaned of apples within Heather's reach, and I didn't feel like being macho momma. We went with the plan to only stay about 1 1/2 hours and ended up staying there for 4 hours! It was so much fun! Heather's favorite part was the corn pool and feeding the goats

Instead of carving pumpkins, we painted pumpkins this year. It was a lot of fun.

We went to a special Halloween party at Reiman Gardens (a local conservatory) it was a lot of fun.

For Halloween we dressed up as Goldilocks and the Three bears. It was a lot of fun and SO cute...in my opinion. :)
