Oh What A Weekend!

This past weekend was awesome! I picked Kyle up Friday morning and it is so good to have him home. Emma and Fishy were very excited to see him (although Fishy just wanted to play with his bags). We spent the rest of the day relaxing and enjoying quality time together.


Saturday we headed off to the La Union Corn Maze/Pumpkin patch. We watched pig races, went through the corn maze (it took us about 2 hours, it would have taken longer if Kyle didn't have pretty awesome land nav skills haha), and then hopped the tractor to the pumpkin patch. We picked out 4 pumpkins and then headed home. The rest of the evening consisted of pumpkin carving, roasting pumpkin seeds, homemade hot chocolate and s'mores.



Yesterday we decided to finish putting up our Halloween decorations outside. We didn't put up everything we have because we will just be taking it down in a few weeks.



I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

  9. Your weekend looks great! We get pig races twice a year at two fairs we have, and I missed it this year. That seems like the most redneck of statements, haha. But seriously it is always entertaining. We're hoping to carve pumpkins Wednesday night!

  10. S'mores on the stove - why didn't I think of that! I'm glad Kyle is back. I know it won't be long before our soldiers leave again, so now is the time to soak in all the togetherness. Here's to many more happy, fun-filled weekends!

  14. Glad Kyle is back at home, with you. Fun pumpkin time too. It was fun for us last weekend, so pretty as well. Your house is beautiful. We have a young man from our church that left yesterday to go to MEPS where he will be going into the Army today. Where is their boot camp now? I'm excited for Devon but will miss his smile and hugs. I've known him since he was just a little boy! Sigh! Have a good week! You both are looking good!
