Finally, this past weekend, the temp dropped somewhere in the 70's. The sun even hid for a few hours. Phew.
While some of us put on some slightly warmer clothes for an overcast late afternoon at the p-patch, a 7-year-old in my company was very unhappy. The idea of long sleeves and pants was so offensive to him that there was door slamming and loud stomping throughout the house. A compromise was found when he was allowed to wear a short sleeved Star Wars tee in case he was "sweating to death," and the long-sleeved one could just be tied around his waist. We are spoiled by the sunshine here, it's true.
The afternoon was really fun. No one sweated to death. There were actual leaves on the ground that were brown.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from our time.
Now if only the "gold" she panned for and collected in that little sack could have paid for that ginormous pumpkin.
