fall and the pumpkin patch

So come rain or shine, and we had both, we made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch....
Lucas has to pick one of the biggest pumpkins in the patch to try and take home.

on the wagon ride there was lots of snuggling to try and keep the chill off. The good news, we were about the only ones there, so there was no line anywhere.

Lucas and his daddy.
Whitney and her cousin Gabs. You girls look a little chilly, but still beautiful.

Johns induction

John was inducted into the Franklin College Athletic Hall of Fame. It was an absolute honor for him and our entire family for him to receive this honor. HIs basketball coach was the one to introduce him that evening, which brought us to tears. Almost his entire family was able to join us along with my parents. A special surprise was his friend that he played with during college, and after in Australia made the trip from Australia to be there for the dinner. It was wonderful to visit with so many old friends and experience the joy of the eveing.

John and his siblings and his mom.
