fall festivities in not much of a fall

We did not make it to Logan this year. Adam is pretty much non-existent while studying for the CPA, so I am trying to still get the kids out of the house for activities. These happy moments in the leaves lasted about 5 minutes and the kids were crying to be carried back to the car which was a 3 minute walk away. Not my idea of a autumn hike but oh well.
So we felt so super lucky to have him take a day off of work for Lily's field trip to the Pumpkin Patch! That day was much much too short - it was the perfect day for me to have help though. I don't know what I would have done be cause Scouting can sometimes take up your entire life.
The farmers offered fresh onions and carrots to the kids. Lily didn't want anything to do with either of them. I snatched up a carrot when offered, which unfortunately got eaten by a lucky donkey whom Adam wanted to feed despite my protests.
Jackson and Lily loved feeding the llamas.
Here is a good representation of my neglected mothering these past few weeks (or maybe months?).Yep - cheese through the garlic press. I think I was contemplating either weathering our side door, mowing the back lawn, caulking all of the windows and door in the basement, planting bulbs in the front yard, figuring out what to do with the 30 green tomatoes still in my garden....and so I sat down and read a book instead, wondering why the warm weather would not cooperate and put a nix to my procrastination by snowing.
