We love the Fall. Our absolute favorite time of the year. This weekend was a little warmer than a usual Fall day. In the 80's. Brian and I took the girls to a pumpkin patch to pick out their pumpkins, some mum's and corn stalks for the front porch and a few fresh veggies. Addy has mastered the word pumpkin now and has been saying it as much as her famous AIRPLANE. When we are outside or even in the car, I swear that is every other word out of her mouth. Airplane, snack, airplane, eat, airplane, sissy, airplane, stop, airplane. Ok, you get the idea.
After the pumpkin patch we took the girls to the park and then to lunch. Quick stop to the grocery store where the girls ran with the shopping carts. What a beautiful day.
Okay, enough fun for the girls. Time for some fun for Mommy and Daddy. Our good friend Melissa came over and babysat the girls while we went with some of our neighbors whitewater rafting. Charlotte has a one-of-a-kind man made rafting center. http://www.usnwc.org/. 12 of us went and we split into 2 boats of six. After some instructions, we were off. We had a great time. Already looking forward to going back. Can't say I'm ready to hit the Gauley or anything. I think the Class 4's are enough for me. Soaked from head to toe, we all dryed off, changed and went to the restaraunt for some drinks, dinner and talk about our adventures of the day. The Whitewater center takes photos of us while we are on the water and you can view them if you go to the website, click on photos for sale, water gallery and look for October 4, 5-6 and 6-7pm.
