I decided to go to Lyman's Orchard because they have apple picking and pumpkin patches. It's about an hour away (only 15 minutes away from where I grew up though!) so we took the scenic route through CT and looked at all the gorgeous and BRIGHT fall colors. They were so vibrant- pinks, oranges, yellows, red. Just beautiful!
Once we arrived we got some lunch (and kettle corn, ahem) and headed to the pumpkin patch. After much running around we went to the orchard and picked some apples, which Charlie really had fun doing. I think I might make an apple crisp this weekend, yum yum! Oh and of course I couldn't leave without picking up a half dozen of their amazeballs cider donuts! OMG so yummy!
We finally got home and we were both BEAT! It was such a fun day though, it's amazing how grown up Charlie is (sometimes) lately. He was a good listener behavior-wise and I could actually have conversations with him in the car. Such a little man!
The next day while Charlie was at preschool I decided to decorate some little pumpkins for the Noel Mignon Halloween crop (going on today on the facebook page!).
I used the supplies in the Mini Masquerade Album kit (I LOVE that metallic paint dabber!!), and there are still some available! I've also been super busy finishing up my mini album class, it starts on Monday and I'm so excited to share it with you all! There's plenty of time to sign up, there are 7 PDFs and HOURS of video tutorials so it's a bargain for only $10 :) You can see some sneaks and the class outline HERE, and purchase by clicking HERE.
I gotta say, I love this time of year! Autumn in CT is beautiful: nice and cool, so many fun activities to do, and Robb and I were both born in October, so lots of birthday cake :P
