Pumpkins, Fall Dresses, Bare Legs & Cowboy Boots

Yes those are my fall loves!  And this weekend was full of them!
We had a packed weekend indeed.  Starting with dinner at PF Changs with another expecting couple which lead to lots of baby talk.  We considered going for ice cream at Cold Stone but decided against it since we were so full.  Poor decision on our part because guess who was spotted at the very same Cold Stone Creamery that night...Robert Pattenson himself.  I can still feel the sting of that one!  Dang, so close to a star sighting!

So then Saturday Z and I ran errands, did some thrifting, etc.  But then Sunday, Sunday was super busy!  We packed up the car and drove out to the best little pumpkin patch ever. 
It's called Mrs. Heather's Pumpkin Patch but they had tons for the kids to do.

Plenty of photo opts...
Lots of horsing around...
Lots...
A giant enclosed slide that I was surprised that Z wanted anything to do with...
A crazy cool zip line that I was shocked Z got on...
It was by far his most adventurous moment to date...
He totally loved it!
Did I mention lots of photo opts?
Lots of running...
TONS of jumping...
Some water pumping...
And certainly TONS of pumpkins!!
This was his final selection.  He was so proud.
After we left the pumpkin patch we were starved.  We debated about doing the easy answer like McDonalds but we took a chance and went to the Bavarian restaurant since we don't get to go there as often as I would like.  It was wonderful as usual and Z really enjoyed his Bavarian waffles!

Next we moved on to Bass Pro and then on to a friends house for some visiting and catching up.  Z was a champ through it all.  Such a wonderful day!  I'll try to post his "Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin" picture from Bass Pro later.  It was so cute.  They had a great little backdrop for the kids to do pumpkin pics and they were doing Peanuts inspired arts and crafts...and was all free.  Pictures, crafts & free?  Yeah...I was impressed.

So there you have it.  Our wonderful fall weekend.
