Pumpkin Patch!!

Ian's mother was in town for the weekend, and on Saturday afternoon we all took a trip to a local pumpkin farm, just a few miles north of Santa Cruz on Highway 1. We had a blast... Cami was shouting out 'pumpkins!' and was so happy to be there, Dahlia was a smiling little doll, and we ended up finding a great round pumpkin that we will probably carve tomorrow morning. Here are some delightful pictures from our outing, the ocean breeze was wonderful and the evening sun made the time pretty perfect. Enjoy...

The rain has come

We have rain!!! YAY for Autumn/Winter: puddles, crock pot soup/stew, baking fresh bread, cozy cuddles with cuddly babies and spouses, etc.

Cami went out to play in the rain with Ian for a bit this morning.

Then Ian drove his motorcycle up to work in the rain:

While the girls napped I made some cupcakes that I food-colored orange, and topped with chocolate frosting and yellow sprinkles... very fall themed. Bible study tonight, and the first rainy day of the season is a success. I hope you are all enjoying the changing seasons and the weather they bring.
