Fall is definitely here

It is fall here in Wisconsin.  For awhile there, we had a really beautiful Indian summer with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.  But, last weekend came and with it a wind that brought rain and 40s and 50s.  It felt like the right time to take our kids to the pumpkin farm.

Chris and Miriam were checking out the apples in the store because it was almost too windy to be outside.
What happens when you ask Miriam and Daddy to say, "Cheese!"

In the meantime, Benjamin stole an apple!  The shop keeper was nice enough to let him keep it, especially since we bought a 1/2 bushel of apples to take home.

We have an annual tradition of using the "How Big Am I" board at the farm to photograph the kids.

Miriam got trapped by pumpkins nearly as big as her!
squished by pumpkins!

And Benjamin picked the perfect pumpkin.
