Reminiscing on Years Past

My last post on our trip to the pumpkin patch has me thinking on the years gone by. It sure does go by fast! 
One reason I began blogging was a way to capture and remember these special little times. I hate that I never seem to find time to blog anymore. 
My life is full, and I am so happy. I am thankful for my four little blessings God has given us. 
Can you even believe my girls were this little? Crazy!


Playing in the Pumpkin Patch

A couple of weekends ago Josh and I loaded up the van with the four coolest kids we knew and headed to the pumpkin patch!
Earlier that week, Josh actually won a gift certificate to the pumpkin patch through a local radio contest. I am glad he did! We had never heard of the place, and it was so close to home. 
We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. It was so nice, we decided to walk out to the patch and pick our pumpkins, and carry them back. We went on a hay ride later. 
I am thankful for this time in the busyness of the fall semester just to get out and enjoy each other and nature. 

Josie and Emma found their perfect pumpkins. 

Addie and Daddy with their pick. 

The cutest pumpkin in the patch!

Autumn Camping

We decided to take the camper out one last time before we put it up for the winter. Autumn is my favorite time to go camping. The air was crisp, and the leaves started to change colors. 
We camped with seven other families from New Tribes at a wonderful campground not too far from home. We had a lot of fun just hanging out together, and I can't forget eating! We had a yummy fish fry from one of the staff guy's bountiful summer of walleye fishing!
My guys. 

Our weekend home (just before packing up. I forgot to take a picture while we camped)

Tavy, Adelaide, and Adelaide. That's right, two Adelaides. :)

Me and my sweet boy!

Lovely campfire.
