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.

Great time in Florida!

Payton and I made a trip to Florida at the end of September, then mom came back with us to watch Payton while Steve and I had a great weekend away. Here are some of the fun pictures from the trip. I was so thankful to see family and great friends!
