Happy Fall Y’ALL!

on October 22, 2012

We are now just weeks away from the arrival of Baby #2 and I have been extremely busy preparing! The best news is I am feeling pretty good, all things considered. In the last six weeks of my pregnancy with Blake, I got pregnancy induced migraines that were completely debilitating. They are very rare but luckily, I don’t have them this time (fingers crossed!).

It’s been a beautiful fall and we’ve taken advantage of several of the wonderful fruit and pumpkin farms here in Northeast Ohio. A few weeks ago, we spent a fun morning/afternoon at Patterson Fruit Farm in Chesterland.

Patterson’s is just plain awesome! They have tractor rides, corn mazes, little tractors for the kiddos to ride themselves and climb in, big slides that end in the woods, an entire hay tent, filled with slides,,,I could go on and on!

Blake and I met two of my friends and their kids at Patterson’s. Blake was having so much fun, we ended up staying even after they left.

Last weekend, we took a family trip to another great farm, Mapleside in Brunswick. Mapleside is another fall Mecca.

They have most of the fall essentials you will find at Patterson’s, in addition to a nice restaurant and fun fall gift shoppes.

Here’s a look at all “four” of us!

While it was a beautiful day, it rained the night before our visit and the corn maze was a mud pit! Just look at Blake.

And I look just like a pumpkin!

SIL Laura and cousin Sean met us at Mapleside.

This week is supposed to be beautiful with temps in the 70’s and we have even more fun fall activities planned, including Blake’s first train ride! I feel so blessed I’m able to do all of these fun things with my little guy, especially since I am in my last weeks of pregnancy. I’m trying to pack in as much as I can, including getting my Christmas shopping done, because I know I won’t be leaving the house much after mid-Nov.

I hope you are enjoying your fall, too!
