So I won't be getting my usual walk in this morning, but I will be doing a lot of walking today. As our last hooray for Fall Break, we're taking the girls to a Pumpkin Patch in Warren County. They're supposed to have hayrides, a petting zoo, corn maze, straw crawl & hay play. Plus you can either buy food there or pack a sack lunch & "picnic by the pond in pumpkin country." I'm really looking forward to this - I think it might turn out to be a really fun tradition for our family. The girls are really excited too. After the patch, I hope to get a fall scene done outside with hay bales, pumpkins, mums, & a scarecrow - my kids love decorating for the holidays (I do too!). Yesterday afternoon, we went out & made a ring of ghosts around a tree in the front yard. This is the view from our front porch. We also have a little area on the front porch with some light up pumpkins & a scarecrow. We have the matching girl scarecrow to go with our hay bale set-up. We were going to make our own scarecrow, but we didn't already have the stuff to make one & even shopping Goodwill for the clothes - it would be cheaper just to buy a ready made one at Walmart, so that's what we ended up doing. No one really uses our front door (most come in off the carport - but we have a couple of decorations there too), but you can see it as you drive down the road.
