A Sunday Afternoon

We had a great Sunday afternoon. The annual Pumpkinfest was this weekend and we just made it to the last few hours today. We watched a 1,430lb pumpkin get dropped from a crane onto an old junk car. THAT was something! It was a pretty big splat and the kids loved it! Unfortunately I had a camera operator malfunction and the video I took of it turned out too blurry to view :( Oh well, it was still fun! Freezing COLD, but fun!

I don’t know what my problem was with the camera today but even the pics I took of the sky on the way home were horrible. Still, the colors of Fall are so beautiful and the sky so blue against the browns and greens that I thought I’d share. I know they’re blurry but I hope they’re enjoyed anyway!

The best part about the drive home was the gorgeous blue sky, puffy wite/gray/black clouds and the colors of Autumn, next time I’ll remember to roll down the window so I can capture the beauty better!
