Digging in the Drafts: A Thing We Did Last Fall

This time of year, it is so hot that the only way to cool down is to think about cooler weather.  Here is a post I wrote in mid-November. I don't know why I didn't publish it, although it does seem unfinished. Here's to dreaming of pumpkin spice everything.

Anna June starts bringing home fall-themed things as soon as school starts back, but mid-August is not Fall. In fact, now that it is mid-November, we're starting to see actual cooler temperatures and leaves at their peak. I don't know that Fall came later this year, but it was OK with me - I wasn't ready for it yet.

One Fall thing we did in October was visited the pumpkin patch with Liz, Patrick, Wesley and Beth. This year, instead of going to The Great Pumpkin Patch in Hayden (where it is strongly suspected most of the pumpkins are trucked in), we went to Old Baker Farm in Harpersville, where they actually grow things.

There was a corn maze, but Wesley quickly made his own way out.

There were no bouncy houses, but there was a trailer full of cotton, which they also grow on the farm.

There were ride-on toys, but AJ was too big for them.
There was a really, really long line for a snow cone. AJ loved it!

We came home with two pumpkins, and they did not become jack-o-lanterns.

Here's a picture from Liz.

It is so hot right now we can't even be thankful for mild fall weather, although I'm trying.
