the boys love to do crafts. especially isaac henry. so we've done lots of painting and drawing pumpkins. and i've sent them on little scavenger hunts around our and our neighbor's yard. sometimes i give them specific things to find and sometimes i say "go! pick up anything you find that you think is cool!" it's a nice change from them digging in the dirt and needing an immediate bath. we need to do it again soon because the leaves are all finally changing and i think we can find some great colors!

2. we went to the pumpkin patch with meghan and andy and katie claire. we tried a different one this year and the patch part was kinda lame. but they had so much stuff to do. we easily could have stayed all day if our boys were a little older and didn't need naps.

you know my boys and how much they love the pictures i force them to take in the pumpkin patch..

3. zoo trips!

we have the zoo membership so zoo trips aren't exclusive to fall obviously. but we got to go to the zoo recently with aunt em.

and then we met my blog friend caitlin and her girls there one day.

so fun to meet her in person! isaac was so funny talking about getting to meet my friend "taitwin" and when we got back to our van and were heading home he said, "momma. i did not know dat girl." ha!

4. church retreat! we just have the coolest church family so it's always fun to spend a weekend with them.

and of course, bryant and i love doing the talent show at the retreat. we talk about it all year, coming up with jokes and whatever. we did a few acts this year but my favorite part was bryant and jacky doing a 10 minute medley.

they are nuts. you can call them white lightening and black thunder.

this year we stayed over an extra night with our youth.

they did a ropes course which was fun to watch. i stayed on the ground because abe (or because i don't like having panic attacks in front of teenagers. whichever.)

and we did lots of other fun stuff too.

i love those kids.

5. (and finally!) we went to the orchard with some of our friends. it was so fun! we rounded up a bunch of people so they gave us a group rate. $5 for the orchard, pumpkin patch, all the activities, hayride, a cookie and an apple cider slush! yes please!!
