Pumpkin Day!

After a long absence it was a beautiful fall day for picking a pumpkin! Today we went the Harvest Festival at our local Botanic Gardens. The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold. The sun was shining and the pumpkins were laid out for the picking. Of course there was A LOT of people there. They had free activities for the kids including decorate your own fall cookie, make a monster hand snack (with popcorn and candy). They had bean bag toss, hoola hoops, bouncy castles, tractor rides and of course, lots of food. I was, however, quite disappointed that they didn't have any booths with pumpkin pie!! I personally think funnel cakes are over rated unless maybe your at a state fair or something, but you would think at a "harvest festival" you would have pumpkin themed dishes. Maybe I should make my own booth for next year! There wasn't even cider! There was lemonade. So other than having the summer fair food and drink on the menu, it was a fun time. Our little cutie was quite content with the pumpkin she picked and tried with all her might to pick up her own :)

A beautiful fall finished with our pups 5th birthday. A bath and a pupcake in celebration of our "first born" :)
