A Perfect Fall Weekend

Not only was there perfect Fall weather this weekend, but there were also perfect Fall activities at the Francis household. Instead of creating three separate posts I decided to combine them all into one.

First, we began the pumpkin painting process…FYI the hardest part was actually deciding how to paint them.

Our finished product…The Francis Pumpkin Family: Daddy, Mommy, and Baby Z


Then I took the initiative to make my first Fall wreath…I have to say I was quite proud of myself since I am by no means crafty on my own.

The next day we spent time at Oakes Farm with some of our good friends…

We slid down slides…

(I think Matthew had just as much fun as Z.)

Swung on swings made to be horses, tractors, deer, and bulls…

Rode on pedal cars and tricycles…

(I had flash backs to the childhood story Three Billy Goats Gruff with this one.)

Wove our way through a corn maze…

And last but not least took a hayride to the pumpkin patch…

And if that wasn’t enough Fall for one weekend, we decided to top it off with another craft…

Whew…I think I’ll call it a well spent weekend…maybe we’ll do it all again next year and make it a family tradition. 🙂
