Pumpkin Picking

Three day weekends are glorious.  Why can't I work four days every week but still get paid for five?! Something to ponder.  Anyway back to my weekend. . . I spent Friday relaxing, napping and catching up on my DVR shows.

On Saturday I was ready to go bright and early. I met up with my friend Joana at the pumpkin patch near her house, Ward's Berry Farm.  Since we got there right when it opened we were the only ones there which was really nice.  It was a gorgeous fall day and Carter loved running around the field of pumpkins!

The perfect pumpkin and candy corn nails.  What could be better?!

There were two separate patches - the one in the first few photos had all large pumpkins and then there was a smaller patch with little pumpkins (photo above) and they were just so cute!!

After picking out our pumpkins we visited with the animals and played on the playground.  It was such a relaxing morning.  I could have sat outside in the warm sun for hours!

More fun fall posts to come this week.  I feel like I need to enjoy these last few warm days because I know the dreaded winter weather is just around the corner!

I finally decorated my house a bit to look more fallish and I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies which are my favorite fall treat.  Finally feeling like fall around my house!  Three day weekends are the perfect balance - you have enough time to relax, do something fun and clean/organize.  I love it.
