Pumpkins and....the beach?

Fall in Ohio makes you think of colorful leaves, corn mazes, and pumpkins.  Rarely does it bring to mind the beach...unless you are Grace!

The afternoon started out with Grace and Kyle designing and carving their pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns. It was warm and sunny so we decided to take the project outside to the deck.

 I always avoid the ooey, gooey part by taking the photos!  
And then within about an hour of finishing the pumpkins, Grace came down from her room in a bathing suit carrying a pool towel and said she had a plan.  Kyle and I both reminded her that it is October.  But, it does feel warm outside, so....what the heck!  It will be snowing soon enough.

Here's what the finished jack-o-lanterns looked like lit on the porch at night.
