Fall Is In The Air

There's a nip in the air. My car had frost on it the other morning. No, it didn't snow here like it did in Baker the other day, but the nights are definitely chillier than they were just a week ago.

Last Sunday, my parents were kind enough to watch the boys after church so Nathan and I could have some time together without being on baby duty. After 9 holes of golf up in Cornelius, we had some time to kill before dinner so we went to the pumpkin patch.

What a zoo! The first one was in North Plains, and you had to pay $4 per person to ride the train down to the pumpkin field and back. So instead of doing that, we bought some gourds and indian corn, then headed to the Roloff Farm in Hillsboro. Have you ever seen/heard of the show "Little People, Big World" on TLC? Yeah, it's that farm. Nathan did a family photo shoot for some friends on the farm a few years ago, back before we even know about that show. Anyway, that place was a zoo as well...tons of people, lots of hype. Not nearly as low key as I remembered it being. But we got two little pumpkins for the boys and one big one for us.

After a relaxed dinner at Red Robin, we headed home. Nothing too spectacular, but it was just what we needed.

And, of course, I had to take a few photos of the pumpkins, in honor of fall!

How about a little more spook factor?
