Scenes from Our Weekend

Just in case you were wondering, it’s still raining in Virginia Beach.  I’m pretty sure this is the sixth day in a row.  The good news is that we now live on waterfront property.  And despite the weather, we had a pretty memorable FALL weekend.  
I really am convinced that there is nothing better in life than experiencing these first holiday moments with your child.  I really couldn’t contain my excitement driving to the patch, I just knew my sweet nature lover would in pumpkin paradise.  She was. 


 Seriously, nothing makes me happier than moments like these.  Is it weird that I really do wish this was our backyard?  Or at the very least, would like to go back to visit every weekend until Halloween … and plan to! 
I definitely don’t think Waverly Maye would mind, she made it clear that she really wanted to lay down & sleep with the pumpkins.

My sweet pumpkin, I really can’t blame her. I wanted to bring them all home, too! 
Like mother, like daughter. 🙂
The rest of our weekend was spent indoors.  We managed to get in as many fall activities as possible, all which were perfectly friendly for the inside while mother nature was causing complete craziness around us.  As much as I hate the rain, it does create a cozy atmosphere for some quality family time.  We ate pumpkin pancakes & pumpkin cookies.  We made a washi tape Halloween garland.  And attempted making this candy corn pizza.
I’ll spare you the picture of how it came out, delicious but totally not what i envisioned.  It’s the thought that counts?
And we did it all while rocking our favorite holiday-friendly PJs, of course.

And YES, I must point out that this crazy toddler sat still long enough to glitter her very first pumpkin!  I decided to go for it & although it ended up a hot mess of glitter & glue, it was worth it.
For me, at least.  Don’t ask my husband, I’m hoping we are not still finding specks of glitter next year at this time when I want to try again.


We hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! 
Can you believe it is already HALFWAY through October?  Thoughts of my toddler trick or treating are officially dancing in my HALLOWEEN head!
