It's (Slowly) Beginning To Look A Lot Like Fall

Being here on the west coast is way different than being in Michigan, where I grew up.  Seasons don't really change dramatically like they do back east.  We have HOT or COLD.  There is not much in between.  However, it is mid October, so we are trying our best to get our home into fall mode. 

William insisted that we put a ghost on our door, just like our neighbor.  So, off went the adorable tin scarecrow, and on went the tacky white trash bag ghost.  They both think it is great.  Me?  The thing scares me half to death every time I open the door. 

We took a trip to our local pumpkin patch the other day.  It turned out to be a hot day!

The flying tubs were their favorite!  Amazingly they were able to get them to spin.  And yes, William has his arms in the air! 

I remember the flying swings being my favorite ride at the fair, so I'm thrilled there are swings at our little pumpkin patch for them to ride. 

We made caramel apples.  I can now say I will not make them for little kids again.  I do not like picking stuck-on caramel out of little teeth. 

The mornings here have been a bit more mild (nevermind the 90 degree afternoons!) so we've been heading off to the park as much as possible.

Looks like you're making the best of your warm/hot weather. We're trying to do the same! I'm hoping to make it to the pumpkin patch/petting zoo before baby comes, too. And I can't believe how big your littles are - especially Abby. Wow!

The door ghost is very fun! :-) Although yummy, I can understand your hesitancy with the carmel apples. lol We would get free ones from the vendor and give them to the burros when I worked at Knotts. Sticky mess but fun. Love Abby's light socket hair! Your house is looking very Autumnal! :-)
