I love fall and pumpkins make me think fall even when it IS in the 80s outside! Here are our cuties where we picked out pumpkins. We came away with three... a big one, a medium one, and a small one that Graham thought was a ball (we had planned on buying a baby pumpkin but that was a definite when he threw it to the concrete sidewalk to bounce it like a basketball)!! We also had a super fun night of carving them, but we did that with friends and I forgot my camera at home.
I mentioned the weather that has been much too warm for fall but we were thankful today for another front to move in... Hooray for the first day of sweater-weather!! I really do love fall. :o)

"Floating, Floating...

Up to the clouds in my hot air balloon!"
Last weekend the Ballunar Festival was here at NASA. I have never in my life seen so many hot air balloons in one location! It may seem like I'm bombarding the blog with balloon pictures but I seriously took 149 pictures on that day alone. So really, you should be thankful for only the 14 that are posted ;o) We went after G's naptime and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening (until about 8:30!) sitting on one of the NASA fields watching a balloon competition, skydivers, and a balloon glow. It was such a beautiful day for it too!!
Feasting on the carnival-like food of a turkey leg -- wow! (not so appetizing to me... I ate pizza).
Kate was enjoying the gorgeous day too!
Some of the balloons we saw...
I just thought this looked so neat.
After dark I went to one of the vendors to snag some hot chocolate for Graham and for myself and some coffee for Nat and we enjoyed the "balloon glow" that all of the balloons lined up for... My camera does not do it justice, it looked amazing!
