Feels like Fall

Last weekend the Southards family went down Cider Mill and Pumpkin Patch to experience a few fall activities. We visit the cider mill year round because they have a cold cider slush that Steve loves. It has gotten so cold, that I have switched the hot cider.

After our cider and snapping a few pictures of Payton around the pumpkins we headed a few miles up the road to a "real" pumpkin patch. I have never seen anything like it. It was acres of pumpkins attached to the vines. We took a wagon and went out on an adventure to find the best pumpkin for our family. Since I am married to Steve, we had to go out as far as possible and find the unique ones. Somehow he found the only white pumpkin I saw in the whole place. We ended up with 5 unique pumpkins for $20! I will say a perk of the mid-west is picking your own pumpkin and Christmas trees.


  1. picking pumpkins is definitely a perk of the midwest...i miss it soooo much!

    and to answer your question about the cabinets. the process itself would have been a lot easier if we didn't have 3 munchkins running around. we've been a "work in progress" for about 1 month now. we worked on it when we had the chance. but, it's finally finished! and worth the work!
    prime them first with kilz. you might need 2 coats of kilz. and then do your paint in a semi-gloss. the paint people at home depot can help you too :)
    good luck!

  2. Erin these pictures are so precious! I loooove the black and white one with Steve and Payton!
