Autumn Days

This weekend we did this

And this

The boys enjoyed a few days out of school for "Fall Break" last week. Brian took the day off and spent with us. He treated Jacob and Jack to an afternoon of golf. Jacob was eager to learn the sport and staying focused on the game. Jack was eager to practice the art of Jousting with his golf clubs. While all my boys were on the golf course, I took some "me time" and hit the One Day Sale at Macy's. It feels great to get a jump start on Christmas shopping!!

On Saturday, we had a great time at Gentry's Farm picking out pumpkins. The boys had such fun picking out their pumpkins.

We ended our morning at the farm with a total of 22 (yes, I said 22) pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and variety. We gifted 2 of the pumpkins to our Aunt and Uncle who live nearby and now the other 20 pumpkins have found a spot at our house! Would you believe that even though we piled all the pumpkins together in the car, each of my kiddos knew exactly which ones they picked! They all look the same to me!!

We're getting excited about Halloween too! The boys each chose their costume this weekend. Jack will be dressing as a Scarecrow and Jacob chose his first "scary" costume.....a Swamp Creature.

Fall is in the air! Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather!!
