Fall date and lots of pics!

Today was an awesome day!  Kevin had the day off and we got to sleep in together.... which is always a treat.  Then, while Kevin got Lucy ready for the day, I made some breakfast sammies... flaky biscuit with ham, egg and pepper jack cheese.  Oooey gooey and delicious.
Then we enjoyed a beautiful drive out to La Fayette, NY to do two of our favorite fall things... pumpkin picking and apple picking.  First, the scenic drive... so gorgeous this time of year with the colorful leaves.
First stop, Tim's Pumpkin Patch...

while I enjoy an apple cider and snapping some pictures... tough job, I know... but someone's gotta do it.
Picked a winner!
Need lots to decorate our yard for fall
For the record... I did not do that (below)
After that, it was off to Beak and Skiff Apple Orchard...

We were able to pick Empire apples and Jona Gold apples.  They were delicious!

When we got home, we decorated the front yard with our new pumpkins.  Now... it looks like fall at our love nest.
Would you believe I just raked the yard yesterday?  Leaves everywhere already!  Ugh!
The mums will be a dark red (close to the color of the shutters) when they bloom.  It's going to look so great!

Below is a cute little garden area in the corner of the yard.
So... that was our day (so far) in pictures.  For dinner, Kevin is grilling up some of his awesome secret-recipe chicken wings and I am making stuffed baked potato skins... and possibly an apple pie for desert. 

Today... was an awesome day!
