The cold has set in and all I can think about is October and wishing the longer days of daylight and warm 70 degree afternoons would return. Fall this year in Oregon was amazing, as always! Having our weekends packed with soccer, we managed to squeeze in our annual trip to the Plumper Pumpkin Patch. Fall doesn't ever feel like it has arrived until we go to the pumpkin patch. This was Ryan's first time and there was lots to take in. In years past the kids have enjoyed the barrel slides and corn maze. This year, pumpkin bowling and the sling shot won their attention.
As for our costumes this year, Justin and I were nothing. I know, super boring. Zach was a Green Fat Skin, what? Kate was a Cowgirl. And Ryan, poor Ryan, got to be boring like us, and just wore a Halloween onesie. Next year I promise we will dress him up. I just couldn't justify buying something for $20, that he would wear once, and for maybe an hour max. Lame excuse for sure! But from the school's Monster Mash to Halloween Night, we all got our spooky fill for the year.
