Let's get started! Here's what we've done in the way of fall fun lately:
1. We made our fall bucket list:
And this wasn't on my fall list, but it should've been:
3. We planted a fall garden. This is not something I know anything about, and my expectations are really low, but fun was had by everyone. Read more about that here.
4. Our first pumpkin patch trip of the season. Way back in September, while it was still technically Summer, we visited Half Moon Bay and realized they're all about the pumpkins over there, so of course we had to stop by a pumpkin patch. Especially since it was a cool, overcast fallish day. I did manage to restrain myself from buying any pumpkins, so expect to see more pumpkin patch pictures in the near future. While we were there, Ez rode a horse, we took the bumpiest hay ride ever (Declan looked petrified the entire time), and they had a cool bulldozer/digger thingy that Ez got to operate.
Before I show you a million pictures of Ez on a horse I have to tell you how proud I was that he rode all by himself. I thought for sure he'd be scared or cry, but nope. As soon as the horse started moving he got this proud little smile on his face and each time he passed by he'd give us a big boy grin. He's growing up right before my eyes.
Also, here's a little flashback to the first (and only other) time he rode a horse, back when he was 15 months old:
