Pumpkin Patch!

I love going to the pumpkin patch each year. We are lucky to live just up the hill from some fabulous farms that really know how to do it up big. My kid is almost 18 years old and he kinda shuffled along and reluctantly pushed the wheelbarrow. He acts like he's too cool for it all, but I bet if we didn't go get our pumpkins every year, he'd be the first one to complain.

After the pumpkin patch, hubby and I went for a bike ride. It was cold, so we had to ride fast to warm up! I did stop long enough to take some pictures of beautiful Mt. Rainier and a little bunny that came out to say hi.

Visit to Texas

I am back in Washington after going to east Texas to visit my sweet grandmother. She is doing pretty well for someone who is almost 90 years old. I was expecting it to be really hot, but it was actually very nice and cool in the mornings and the evenings. I couldn't escape the mosquitos and ants though, and they chewed me up pretty good. I think they send out an all call when fresh meat arrives in the state. I took this picture from my grandmother's back porch. There is nothing quite like a sunset in Texas...
