Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Around here, we thought we were going to have a fun fall weekend. However, when we woke up on Saturday morning, it was to this:
Mother Nature decided to dump a cloudy, overcast, foggy, rainy, 5o degree day on us. Of course, this was the day we had planned to go to a charming local Pumpkin Festival, complete with corn maze, rides and games for kids, and a pick-your-own-pumpkin field.
When I was growing up in Ohio, fall activities were some of my favorites. We always went to Rouster's Apple Farm where they had apple orchards, a crackling wood fire in the fireplace, lots of yummy apple cider, and, of course, pumpkins. For Nina's first October, back in 2006, we made sure to take her to the apple farm. Check out this photo with baby Nina and the little bin of apples (that has been there since I was a kid!), labeled "Little apples for Little people."
So I guess you could say that I was the most disappointed member of the family this weekend! I had very high hopes for fall family fun, and it just didn't turn out. The only good thing was that my husband found a really cool green pumpkin at the Pumpkin Fest (you know, in the 20 minutes we were there before the rain and cold forced us to go home!). Check out my little set-up outside the front door!
I sincerely hope that your weekend was better than mine! What did you do?
