In between the usual weekend chores of laundry, grocery-shopping, cheer class and cheering on the Huskers (guess we didn't cheer nearly enough), Maddy and I made our way out to our nearby pumpkin patch.
Can I just say that I love Nebraska in the fall!
It was a perfect day with the sun shining and temps cool in the mornings, but warming up nicely plus low humidity!!! The trees are turning color and it is truly the best time of the year. Such a lovely day out and instead of joining the hordes there at 1 PM, we didn't make it until around 4 PM. Perfecto plan as it was not nearly as crowded and we could enjoy the sights without feeling rushed.
Of course, we had to ride the little train, pose with a friendly (?) skeleton,
Goof off with a scary monster,
Take the hayrack ride out through the spooky forest and . . .
hunt for a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch!
Guess who rode in our hayrack ride along with us -- a lovely golden retriever jumped on at the last minute. When we arrived at the patch, he sauntered off to find his own pumpkin -- so sweet. Maddy was so curious as to who he belonged to because he did not even have a collar on AND he acted like he owned the place. Well, he does own the place -- rather his owners do!
