Fergus Falls - Hunting Trip

Last weekend, we drove to Fergus Falls so Paul could go hunting with his dad and brother and we also celebrated Grandma T's birthday.  The boys had success hunting and got 5 ducks, which will now be duck sausage :).  I got spoiled by Grandma T as she got up early with the kids so I could sleep in and also let me go for a nice long fall weather run :).  We also had a lot of fun going to a pumpkin patch near their house while the guys were hunting.  It had tons of cool stuff including hay bales to climb all over, corn pit, leaves to jump in, and outdoor blackboard, yard games, animals, and the longest, coolest hayride I've ever been on (complete with a sighting of a Bigfoot (or at least a guy dressed up as one and acting as one!)!  Thanks Grandma T for the pictures!

The following day, the kids (along with Daddy and Grandpa's help) carved their pumpkins.  Grandpa printed templates for each of the kids - Lightning McQueen for Colton and Ariel for Summer.

Colton couldn't carve his actual pumpkin so he carved all the pieces that came out of the pumpkins- and LOVED it!


Summer and Grandpa were a team!
Summer decorated her pumpkin top with pushpins while Grandpa did the intricate carving

Turned out great!
Thanks for a fun fall weekend and for all the delicious food, Grandma and Grandpa T!
