First, in my Friday post I wished our friend Ed good luck in the Marine Corps Marathon, thinking it was last Sunday. I am an idiot. It is next Sunday. Good luck Ed--next Sunday!
Now for the weekend! My husband's parents are lifelong New Yorkers so we took them off to the pumpkin patch for some down home fun. I'm pretty sure this was Jerry's first time roping a steer. He did great!
We ate hot dogs, ribbon chips, rode the train, said hi to friends, picked out pumpkins, and drank real Coke (it was ice cold and delicious). Made some good memories.
The boys love Aunt Sarah. She lives in Manhattan so it was fun to see her run through a corn maze and ride a John Deere train.
Also fun having another photog around..
Candied pumpkin spiced pecans--SO GOOD!
- Fun hanging with Sarah at dinner! She ate her first fried pickle, we're turning her into a country girl.
- Channeled Shanna and since I didn't have time to run to Old Navy and buy that vest she wore that I wanted, I cut the sleeves off of last year's safari jacket! HA! And I love it!
- Made Andrea's banana bread. You have to make it. It was almost gone within 10 minutes, delicious! I added chocolate of course.
- We also roasted marshmallows. Mr. C has been wanting a fire pit forever and couldn't resist getting one with his dad in town. I am looking at this picture wondering what I was thinking letting my 3 year old hold fire?!!?
We made great memories this weekend and I'm exhausted (probably most of all from our attempts at a Christmas picture...I'll share later this week)! Happy Tuesday gals!
