a Fall tradition

"Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter." - Carol Bishop Hipps This is our 5th Fall living in southern Wisconsin and 5th time making the trek just north of us to a tiny town called Lodi.

Going to the Treinen Farm has become one of our traditions. It's a working family farm that opens to the public in the Fall and fortunately has retained it's charm and not gotten too terribly commercial.

Grace and Will played in corn, had apple cider and doughnuts, fed goats, played on the tractor tires and went down a tube slide(Will's absolute fav!)

The highlight for us all was taking a horse drawn hayride down to the pumpkin patch where Grace and Will carefully chose their pumpkins.

It was a perfect crisp Fall day and the leaves here are almost at their peak. They both played hard and took a long nap after we got home...playing is hard work you know! Can you tell something's different about Grace? (2 things) cut(it was her idea and I think she looks adorable!) and she's lost another tooth. Big gap now in the top front teeth...
if you look at the top collage you can see.

The kids look like they are really enjoying each others company.
We also have a local spot in our area where the family opens their farm up to visiters this time of year~so much fun!
Grace I love the hair cut! It fits you so well. ;)

So, all Grace wants for Christmas are her 4 front teeth!
