Pumpkin time

Clay and I don't like to carve pumpkins. We prefer the Mr-potato-head approach to pumpkins.

Here are the front and back of the ones Clay and I did.

Here are the ones the girls did.

And now for something freaky!

Farm Tour

It's that time of year again. Our favorite family tradition.We got the girls ready for a whole day exploring the farms.

First stop, the horses. Both Emma and Rebekah wanted to do some pony rides. We were the only ones there, so the gal took each of them on an extra long ride through the property. Such beautiful countryside.

Then we stopped at Ayrshire Farm. We tried to go last year, but it was raining the whole time. There are several restaurants in the area that serve food from this farm. It is all organic. This was another beautiful property.

I got a big kick out of listening to the turkeys. And for around $100 you can have one of these turkeys on your table for Thanksgiving.


Last stop, the Corn Maize. This year's maze was dedicated to scouting. The girls also wanted to go on a camel ride.

Hike

Clay set out to hike another section of the AT today. When we dropped him off, we walked with him for a little bit. They built this walkway right over the highway. It was pretty cool, and we were overcome with the urge to run, screaming, across it as all the cars sped by below.

Then we said good-bye and left him on the trail. He always takes some really great shots on his hikes, but I can't tell you much about them.

Family Fun Day

Clay's new company has a Carnival for families every year. We have heard about how great it is from our friends. Now we get to go to it. Clay wanted to show us his office first. Doesn't he have a great view??!!

The girls loved the face-painting.

Emma was very brave to try the Gyroscope. Though I don't think she liked it.

She also tried the wave machine.

And the trapeze.
