Pumpkin Boys

We had a weekend full of fall festivities, and very little napping.  Even so, Calvin had a blast, and we’re all going to catch up on sleep this week.

Weekend recap:

We met our dear friends from Richmond who have two adorable boys for some apple picking at Carter’s Orchard in Charlottesville.  We navigated some steep, muddy trails in the good ol’ Bob stroller and found some Fuji love.

The boys had fun in the pumpkin patch.

Calvin even sat still long enough for a family shot:

Immediately afterward, we ventured to the All Saints Festival at Trinity Presbyterian Church.  Calvin was a little too little for most of the games, but he did have fun splashing in the rubber ducky tub, pole “fishing” with magents, and doing the bean bag toss (which he’d rather hand to the lovely young lady than toss at the targets).  It was a great festival, but it had nothing related to anything regarding church history.  I hope they add some of the rich history of the Reformation as part of the festival next year.

We didn’t stick around for the band or the square dancing since our little man decided to forgo all of his naps for the day–which meant he needed an early bedtime, especially after all the apple-picking, pumpkin patching, bean bag tossing fun.

The best 2 costumes I saw at the festival: the hand-made shark costume (totally a crowd pleaser!), and the adorable toddler who was a skunk with the fluffiest tail ever.  Calvin’s costume?  Well, can’t you tell from the photos above?  He went as an x-ray!
