I love fall activities. There is something marvelous about the crisp, cool air, smell of hay, and falling leaves that make every fall excursion delightful. I love carving pumpkins, drinking cider, burying myself in crinkling leaves, but I especially love picking pumpkins from a pumpkin patch.
On Saturday Jason, Addie and I ventured out to Priddy Farms, on north Germantown Rd, to find a pumpkin. We had, as expected, a wonderful time. They have a little train for the kids ($1), free playground equipment (the slide was a big hit), and pleny of hay bales set up for adorable photo-ops. The whole family, no matter how small or large, can take a hay ride for $3 out to a (rather dismal) pumpkin patch. The pumpkin patch is obviously set up for the kids. They wander around and search for the perfect, pre-picked pumpkin, just like buried treasure.
If you don't want to take the hay ride to the pumpkin patch, there are PLENTY of pumpkins in the front for your perusal and purchase. Overall, I enjoyed Priddy Farms. We had plenty of laughs, dirty hands, and a delicious taste of what autumn has to offer. Ah, if only I were allowed to eat a donut, the cider would have been more tempting this year...
This last picture is to show you Addie's new love...blanket forts. This has been up and down (mostly up) for over a week now. She loves it. She'll sit in there for long stretches of time looking at her books. When we have our own house I will LOVE designing her a cozy reading nook!

I particularly like the long ribbons down her back and always thought she looks so pretty in light blues and purples.
On Halloween she will wear wings (she is supposed to be some sort of fairy) but they have so much glitter on them I didn't want to bother today. I'm thinking about also making a flower headband, but she doesn't keep anything on her head for longer than a second, so it might not be worth the effort.I made her this flower wand last night. This is the best picture I have of it. She wasn't that interested in carrying it around, but it does complete the outfit, don't you think?
I am very proud of myself. I think the dress turned out really cute and frilly, I love it!

This is the BEST sushi I have ever had. Jason and I got it at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant in DisneyWorld when we were there in May. Mmmmm...
So, I'm curious, how many of you, fellow blog-readers, enjoy sushi? I look forward to your answers on our poll.
