An autumn day

I love autumn! It's my favorite season.  It's been unseasonably warm here in Denver, seriously, we had our windows open yesterday.  Thankfully (and most of my friends may be upset with me), we are going to get some snow this week!  This past weekend we went to nick's garden center to get some pumpkins and roasted chilies. We've been doing this for the last few years.

If he can lift it and carry it, he can have it...this one wasn't it.

He actually got this one on to the cart and into the trunk.  Strong kiddo.
Same rule.

oh my gosh they're getting so tall.  Not sure how many more years we'll have left doing this.  I had to bribe them with candy to do this this year.

My car still smells like roasted chilies.

Our cart was so heavy!

Another fun halloween/autumn thing we do, is booing the neighborhood.  We leave a little bag of goodies on neighbors' porches and then 'ding dong ditch'.  The kids have a blast....didn't have to bribe them to do this one.

Jack's been guarding  our porch.  I wanted to dress him up in a Bronco's shirt with a sign that said 'will sit here until the Broncos when the Super Bowl' but Jason was afraid our house would be egged.

Those are some serious pumpkins! Never see them that size over here - not for sale anyway!

Uh, thanks for the reminder...we haven't made our annual trip to Nicks yet. Count me in on the "ready for change" column of weather. I actually enjoy our Fall-showers....because it's just enough to breakup the season a little bit...not as depressing as the winter storms

Those first few pumpkins are huge - I love that you get to wash them off.

john and ashley...there were some huge pumpkins there this was about half the size of Isaac, our 9 year old, I should have taken a picture of that one

martha, ooh so glad I'm not alone :D Can't wait to see what pictures you come up with at Nick's, lots of neat stuff there this year and the roasted chilies smell awesome.

I love that you ding dong ditch people and they discover goodies. What a wonderful way to spread some cheer.
