It's the Great Pumpkin...

In October we decided to try and find the most perfect pumpkin. Kevin and I wanted to go to the local farmer's market to pick one but Caroline wanted to try a church pumpkin patch we pass everyday to go home. The had an OK selection and Caroline was in heaven.

She loved the baby pumpkins. They were the perfect "Caroline size".

She would have taken everyone of them home if we let her.

At last we found the perfect pumpkin. What a ham she is.

I don't have pictures of the jack-o-lantern because it started to rot only a few days after we got it. It didn't even last to Halloween. Bummer!

Home Alone...

So...what do you do when you are on bed rest + your husband and daughter go to grandma's house for a few days + your bored + you have a good camera + a good tripod =

You take your own 29 week baby bump pictures.

This was way fun!

All the time in the world...

Since my midwife has put me on bed rest for at least 2 weeks (more on that in the next post) I can't rely on my old "I don't have time" excuse for not updating my blog. I am going to catch up with some of our crazy adventures!

Pilot Mountain

I have lived in NC long enough that it is a cryin' shame I haven't been to this famous landmark. We decided it would make a great day trip for one of Kevin's days off. He has been working so hard lately and we didn't want to waste any time in doors.


The weather was crisp and cool and perfect for the fall day. We went on some walking trails around the pinnacle. I think Caroline picked up every rock out there.

After Pilot Mountain we stopped by Mount Airy which is a whole town's homage to "The Andy Griffith Show." They had a soda fountain, Opie's candy store, and lots more Mayberry memorabilia. We stopped for some hot chocolate at a book store and rested ourselves before heading back home. Ever since Caroline has been asking when we can go back to the mountain.

** Now you've got the "Andy Griffith Show" theme song stuck in your head, don't you? You're welcome!
