Pumpkins, Pumpkins, and More Pumpkins

A totally staged shot of the boys picking pumpkins. We didn't buy any of those.

Entering the hay maze. I got claustrophobic and backed out, but the boys LOVED it.

Smiling just long enough to snap a picture.

The hay ride (Really just a tractor ride in a circle for 2 minutes, but you know what I mean.)

Pumpkins in the sun...pretty!

Gourds in a basket. I have big plans of printing and framing 8x10 seasonal pics that I can switch out each season. Probably won't happen.

I always dread this part, but it's really not that bad.

Mission completion!

Fall Flowers...Finally

After the crazy hot summer killed most of our landscaping, our house had a sort of "desert chic" curb appeal...or lack thereof...for a couple of months. Not anymore! We have baby bushes growing in the garden, a new tree that should live longer than the little spruce we lost, and gorgeous mums on the porch. My favorite is the pumpkin spider, though. How adorable is that?!? (Pretend Carter does have shoes on and isn't doing the peepee dance, and this is a perfect picture.)
