I love this time of year . . . the weather is cooler, the boys can play outside any time of the day, football is on TV, and the holidays are just around the corner. This year is even more special to me because we will be able to enjoy it with more family. The Smalley's have moved back to Arizona!!! We are all super excited to be able to spend time with all of them!! Our first tradition of the year was to go to the pumpkin patch at the Desert Botanical Gardens. It's a great little festival and the boys each got to pick out a pumpkin and play games. They had a blast. Plus, their cousins were able to go. (Except for the newest cousin - Rylan. Hopefully next year!!!)

Caleb found his!
Teresa had to roll hers!
Ronan found his!

Caleb caught a chicken!
I think the pig was a little unsure
Until Ronan offered food.
