We took a glorious drive today and found ourselves at a pumpkin patch. we drove over the river (eerrmm, lake) and through the woods, then onto the badlands, and finally found ourselves surrounded by pumpkins. I honestly felt like we were driving around in a fairy tale. Lilly picked out her own pumpkins (I had a hard time stopping her at three) and pushed them around in her stroller. It was so much fun, and the perfect way to spend a gorgeous Sunday.

early frost.

The family and I headed out to Big Bear yesterday, and it was a beautiful, brisk day. We ate some breakfast (mmm, pancakes and coffee!) and then walked around a bit. It was sunny, but pretty cold-33 degrees! As we strolled, my hubby and I noticed some places that had traces of snow already, and then we saw these plants. The poor things were covered in ice, with no chance of seeing warmth again anytime soon.

I think this may be a sign that our summer has come to a close, whether we like it or not. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, though. I think this is a sign that we will see a beautiful winter!
