A Great Day

Yesterday my Beloved, our daughter-in-law Erika, and I took Thomas and, Wonder Woman, err, I mean Riley to a Halloween-themed train ride, a ride on a carousel (we looked for Flora Belle the carousel horse but she must have been on vacation), and to a pumpkin patch. Fun times!


Wonder women!



I found a good use for the baby stroller after Thomas picked the biggest pumpkin in the patch! My adult kids reminded me that we enforced a rule when they were growing up: “You’ve got to be able to carry by yourself the pumpkin you select.” Good rule!

With Love,

    The baby is probably less heavy than the pumpkin. Good choice to put it in the stroller. 🙂
