Fall Fun

We were SO ready to welcome Fall here! The hubs was anxious to get out in the woods and start bow hunting season and I was ready for warm sunny days and cool cozy nights with the windows open. As the season changes once again I’m thankful for more outside time with my guys and taking in the fresh air. I’m thankful that we can see the beautiful leaves change colors, that we can feel the cool crisp air on our skin, that we can hear the leaves crunch and the acorns fall, that we can smell the pumpkin bread baking in the oven, and that we can taste the seeds we’ve dried and baked after carving a pumpkin as a family. It is such a blessing that we are all in good health as we are in the season of thanks giving.
For us, it just wouldn’t be fall without a trip to the pumpkin patch. We were really pleased with the pumpkin patch and hay ride we went to last year and looked forward to going back again this year, only to find that the were not selling pumpkins or making any  activities available this year. Luckily, we stumbled across some info about the Rutledge-Wilson Farm Community Park in Springfield and spent a day exploring Harvest Fest.

It was a beautiful day spent with my beautiful little family at this beautiful time of year! Happy Fall!
