Now that Fall is officially here... I can say that I love this time of year. Yeah, I am really sad that beach weather is in the rear view mirror until May, but I do enjoy the Fall for many reasons.
I love the crispness in the air as the days get shorter.
I love the smell in the air when people have a fire going in their wood burning stoves or fireplaces.
I love when the wind blows & I watch the beautiful orange, yellow & red leaves blow across the ground.
I love going pumpkin picking and mums. (We need to get some!)
I love going to the farms and seeing the kids petting the animals, taking a hay ride, playing on the hay bales, and going through the corn mazes.
I love the Fall Festivals, Harvestfest & Octoberfests. I wish I could go to them all.
I love the Halloween Pet Parade in Chester, NJ.
Actually, I love going to Chester in the fall anytime!
Carving pumpkins - Messy but fun!
I love decorations like scarecrows, hay bales, cornstalks, pumpkins, gourds and mums.
Oh and Apple Picking - I can't think about fall without thinking about Apples! Brian makes Apple Crisp every year.
I remember one year not feeling good, and setting a huge bowl of candy out in the front of the door with a note to take ONE piece of candy only. Well, of course you know, the first kid came and knew he hit the mother lode & dumped the whole bowl into his sack.
This year is very different. I am very excited about Halloween because I get to dress up my daughter in a fun costume. We might even take her trick or treating LOL! (Yeah you know darned well the candy is for us, not her!). I won't say what her costume is yet, but you know I'll be posting many pictures of that! I will say this - it is very cute and made Brian & I hysterically laugh. More to come...
This is Brian and I picking our first pumpkin as a married couple.
Little did we know we would have our very own little "pumpkin" this year!
Here are a couple of pictures I took of a local farm a few years ago
