Perfect Fall Day, Perfect Pumpkins - Week of Oct. 20th

Fall days can be chilly and rainy.  For Michigan, it's been one of the best autumn seasons filled with days that you wish there was a pause button for.
The warmth of the sun on your back, the incredible colors that appear brighter and more vibrant each day, and of course, picnic lunches make us want to hang on to October just a bit longer.

Outdoor activities were a must this week as we enjoyed an unseasonably warm duration of weather.  Emma joined us to dine outside and play "vehicles" in the driveway.  It's funny how parents can make up a game and it's fairly enjoyable, but when a friend/peer creates one, well let's just say that Cam definitely prefers Emma's impromptu events over any adult-orchestrated one.

In the evening, Auntie Jo found a perfect pre-Halloween outing for Will and Cam to see...a pumpkin walk!

There were over 700 pumpkins displayed along a wooded trail. Some were expertly carved and others were just fun to see.  The church where the event was hosted in Allendale was very welcoming with a treat tent, some local firemen and many beacons of light along the pathway.  "George" was definitely Cam's favorite carving in the woods.  Although we couldn't get a perfect pose from the boys, we captured a moment showing that buddy bond.  Many thanks to Auntie Jo for finding a free, fun time for all of us!

As the leaves pile up and we know the changing weather is right around the corner, Cam's enthusiastic chant of "Yeah, sun!" will be echoed by us all!
