Ya Gotta Love the Fall

Finally..the promised photos.

The iconic pumpkin patch photos.



We've had some visitors (We LOVE visitors!):

The Cooks.


The Carlsons

My family (that's my lovely grandmother)


Joshua loves sunglasses. Unfortunately, we only have girly ones.


On rainy days we build a fort. All kinds of things end up in here: books, puzzles, dolls, tea sets, lunch.




On sunny Saturdays and random days when Daddy has no classes, we tour!

Last Mon. in Central Park


On Saturday we explored Cold Spring, a little town on the other side of the river. It was fun to see things "from the other side." We did a little shopping, finding some great bargains for next summer, and had lunch at a restaurant right by the railroad tracks so we could wave at Amtrak passengers as we ate.
Cargo trains use the tracks on the other side



That sums up our fall pretty good, so far. Oh, and yes, we do still have the skunk. AND, John and his friends have seen some other large animal sauntering around back there. John thinks it's a raccoon. Yes, we love visitors, but we prefer the human kind.

So much for that

I had the camera out. Hooked up. It was ready to give up all the photos that have been hanging out on there for...hmm...weeks now. I clicked on the "New Post" button. Image uploads will be disabled for two hours due to maintenance at 5:00PM PDT Wednesday, Oct. 20th. That was the message that greeted me.

I guess I'm off the hook...for now. Sorry. At least I tried. There's no good excuse for neglecting a blog for over a month now -- no good excuse at all.

I'll try again tomorrow.
