It has become a tradition of sorts for each of us to choose our "perfect" pumpkin. I use them to decorate the front porch for fall until about a week before Halloween. Then we take an afternoon or evening to carve the pumpkins together. Or rather, Kyle carves and Grace and I watch!

This year we went to a new farm. They were supposed to have hot air balloons, but they cancelled the lift off because of the weather. It was fun anyway with a small art fair (I bought a Christmas present for Aunt Debbie), a place to "mine" for gems, an animal petting area, and other fall favorites like hay rides. It was also a winery so we sampled some wine, but we ended up coming home with strawberry maple syrup. Mmmmmm.....I think pancakes will be on tomorrow morning's menu for breakfast!
