Weekend goodness @ the pumpkin patch

I really loving this time of year - the weather has finally cooled down and we were able to enjoy Uesugi Farms Pumpkin Patch last weekend without breaking a sweat. This was our third year at this particular farm, our first year we went as a family and last year I took Mitch's parents.

We met up with some friends and the kiddos had a blast! Hay jumping, picking pumpkins, train rides & even a corn maze....

It was a lot of fun, but I'm glad to have the pumpkin patch done and dusted for another year. That place was crazy busy!

Because the everyday, candid moments are often the most beautiful - snapshots of the kiddos at play at a random park in Genoa, Nevada on our Lake Tahoe getaway...

And of course, because we couldn't resist a couple of posed shots in this beautiful location... :-)

Pumpkins & ponies

Pumpkins & ponies - a sweet little festival we happened across in South Lake Tahoe a couple of weekends ago. With a bounce house, rock decorating, face painting and even a donkey, it was a perfect way for the kiddos to let off some steam!

Because I love it here

I feel like we've been to Lake Tahoe so many times since I've been writing this blog that I'm running out of blog post titles whenever we visit. But anyway - the weekend before last, we took advantage of a great deal at a Aston Lakeland Resort (where we stayed at this same time last year with Mitch's family) and with a few friends in tow, headed back to this beautiful lake; my American happy place.

I just don't tire of Lake Tahoe. Autumn here is beautiful - the leaves are changing to brilliant shades of yellow + orange, the weather is crisp but warm in the sun, there's a beautiful smell in the air. On the south shore, the water was even warm & shallow enough to walk out into the lake itself.

It really was a relaxing, laid back weekend. Beautiful scenery, great company & cute kiddos... Can we go back already?
