This year we finally made it to a pumpkin farm. Last year, Mark and I were both exhausted and decided to go down the street to a church.Today, Mark had the day off along with one of our friends and we decided to make a whole day of being outdoors.
Up until today the weather has been in the upper 70s or 80s, but today truly felt like fall. It was cold, damp, and cloudy. I wanted soup for lunch and dinner and maybe some pumpkin doughnuts for dessert and drink cider and . . . I could go on for while about fall foods.
At the base of the Falls. We were a little sweaty and a little tired. And I was embarrassed to admit I was a little hungry since I ate a snack with the kids in the car only an hour before.Yeah! We made it to the top. I literally shouted “hooray!” when we reached the 599th stair. I haven’t worked out in a week and I totally felt it in my legs. I was relieved to hear these two felt it too, so I didn’t feel like a weeny.
After we got home, we ate soup and fresh baked bread. The boys took a long bath (not without Silas’ almost nightly poop in the bath tub – arrgh, that kid) and got snuggled in their flannel pajamas. Brooks wanted me to snuggle him to sleep. As I laid with him, I couldn’t help but feel a little warm fuzzy as I thought about our day together.
