Autumn weekend.

This weekend was fun of lots of laid back fun. On Sat we enjoyed the Sinkland Farms Pumpkin patch. On Sunday, i took the kids to our local library to watch How to Train Your Dragon. We actually saw this in the theater when it first came out, and enjoyed it enough to see it again. Great movie if you haven't seen it yet!

We spent the morning playing outside. The kids racked up a huge pile of leaves and had a ton of fun playing in them.

They both love to get totally buried.

The county that borders us, has a local wagon train society. Because we are right on the border, our road is often the route of the wagon train. We usually see them on holidays, Labor day, 4th of July or Memorial day. This year we hadn't seen them at all, and then they appeared out of the blue this weekend. It was just a small a train, with a few wagons and many rides. It's always fun to go outside and watch them ride past.

This year a couple of the folks brought their horses over to the fence so the kids could pet them.

My girl spent most of the afternoon chasing and catching chickens. This is one from our last batch of peeps. They have all their feathers in now, and we are still trying to determine if we have hens or roosters. It is looking like possibly 2 hens, and 4 roosters...ugh!

We carved pumpkins and roasted pumpkin seeds.

Sage decided to just color hers instead.
We are gearing up for Halloween, and putting lots of thought into costumes. We really haven't done much decorating yet, so i need to work on that this week. We made pumpkin and bat sugar cookies, and i'm planning to make some more spooky food this week. Family fun website always has really creative ideas for some spooky foods.


  1. Looks fun! We did a little pumpkin fun this weekend as well! Getting ready for some fun in the leaves around here as well!

  2. My daughter's name is Sage, too! She just turned five. She also drew all over her pumpkins today with markers. What a small world! :_
