Salem in the Fall...

The kids and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Salem to see Pammy and Gramps. Our time there was jam-packed with fun fall activites!

 First stop, the little beach.  Libby and Knox made sand castles while Pammy soaked up the sun.

After church on Sunday, we headed to the Pumpkin Patch in Mt Vernon.  It was GREAT!  

The hayride was the best part!  It looked like a pirate ship...

The playground was HUGE and it had teeter totters and tricycles.

After all that playing, homemade butterscotch ice cream and kettle corn hit the spot!
A little pumpkin painting after the patch!
Gramps returned from a trip on Monday, so Knox put him straight to work on the tractor.

The girls went shopping and this is what we returned to.
Our last night, gramps and the kids made a campfire. 
We had a weenie roast and s'mores...
Yum!  Too much fun!

Libby's Soccer Debut

 Libby has started playing soccer this fall.  She is having a lot of fun.
 Knox would give anything to be out there with her.
 A prayer before the game
 Ready to play defense

 "Good game!"

I think after-game snacks are her favorite!
