Fall Fun

It’s beginning to look and feel like fall in Kentucky. We enjoyed a weekend jam-packed with all sorts of fall activities, but before I start writing about it and posting photos, let me back up to Friday…

Lily has been wanting to cut her hair short since summer time. Many of you know that she was practically bald way past her first birthday. The first time she ever wore pigtails was when she turned two. Since then, she’d only had two haircuts. I really was in no rush to cut her long hair, but after she persisted for so long, I caved. After all, it’s only hair, right? Plus, when she asked every day after school last week if it was “hair cut day,” I knew this was something she really wanted to do. She hopped right into the chair without any hesitation, and a huge smile on her face. Ali at Bak For More is the only one who has ever cut Lily’s hair, so we really trust her. Here is the result –

That’s ten inches of hair that we’ll be sending to Locks Of Love. Lily absolutely loves her new style. I can’t believe how grown up it makes her look! Onto Saturday…

We visited one of our favorite fall attractions, Evan’s Orchard, to pick some pumpkins. Rydan and Lily of course chose the biggest pumpkins they could find.

We then enjoyed a hayride out to the corn maze.

After that we let the kids enjoy the play area for awhile before heading back home.

The kids changed into their costumes, and we then drove to McConnell Springs to trick-or-treat. The crowd was a bit crazy, and it took us nearly two hours to walk the entire trail. The kids seemed to enjoy the characters along the way, though, and the weather was nice too.

Yesterday, it was off to a pumpkin-carving party with some friends. Lily chose foam stickers over carving, which was fine by me.

Rydan dug right into his pumpkin, though, and carved it all by himself.

From all of us in Kentucky… Happy Fall Y’all!
