This and That

Here's a hodgepodge of photos, and not in the right order.

Some of our friends raised some guinea fowl this summer. They got the birds to eat bugs out of their garden. The guineas did their job, and now that garden season is over, the guineas had to die. One Sunday afternoon, Matt, Keenan and I shot 'em. Then, they were beheaded. I'll spare you the photos of the guineas being beheaded. Instead, here's a cute picture of Audie checking out the killings from afar.

From the months October to March, this is the best spot in the house. It's the only place that sun shines in through the windows, and it's so warm. It's not uncommon to find one of us sitting in the sun spot. 

This morning we went to visit our chocolate friends for our annual halloween photo!

Back in early September we met up with cousins downtown for Corinne's birthday.

A couple of weeks ago we had a school field trip to the pumpkin patch. It has been years since I have been to a pumpkin patch, and I have to say they have evolved quite nicely. Back in elementary when I went for field trips, it was a hayrack ride to the patch, pick your pumpkin, and then go home. Now, there are tons of activities to do at pumpkin patches! The one we visited had train rides, zip lines, slides, barrel rolls, playground equipment, corn mazes, goats....

 It was a fun field trip, and a perfect day with nice weather. The girls enjoyed spending time with their teachers and classmates. After a couple hours of playing on the equipment, we took a tractor out to the patch to pick out pumpkins. We took our four pumpkins home and the girls painted faces on them.
