The pumpkin patch is my favorite part of this time of year! Josh and I go every year and this year instead of going to our usual place, The Roloff Farm, we made a quick stop at the patch on Sauvie Island. It was great, we went on a rainy Friday and no one was there - except the goats! I love goats!!
They had tons of pumpkins, but this year I decided to go traditional and stick with THE Jack-o-lantern face. Triangle eyes and all. So we hunted down the one with the perfect shape for it.
On the way back home we stop for the 'burger' fix we'd both been craving. Mine was a veggie burger, but it was more the location. We really like Little Big Burger, they have truffle fries so naturally its a win. However, while said fries are very delicious, they also hurt our bellies about half way in. They pack the those little baggies full to over-flowing so we get one and share them. Its a great lunch, filling and not expensive. Plus the city is beautiful this time of year as the leaves start to change.
After I gained all the energy from my foods, I got to carving as soon as we got home. I went pumpkin crazy. Carving the pumpkin, while drinking pumpkin beer, eating pumpkin chips, and wearing a pumpkin t-shirt.
Just a normal autumn day in our house :)

My mom got a new puppy about a week before the wedding. I have been dying to see that pup since they picked it up, its a BernieDoodle. Bernese Mountain dog mixed with Mini Poodle - Well that's what they were told and what they paid for. HOWEVER, we called Maury to do a DNA test and a mini poodle IS NOT the father! I kid, I kid. But really, they did have a DNA test done to be sure and it does in fact turn out that little Miss Addie is 100% full Bernese! Which isn't the worst thing in the world, just not what they were expecting. Either way I tried to fit her in my purse to take her home, she was too squirmy so I left her at moms house.
We played with Addie until she fell asleep, then while she was sleeping we had lunch and when she woke up we took her out to the pool with us. I forgot how much fun puppies are! She played so hard, then soon as her daddy came home she immediately fell asleep in his lap, it was so sweet!
After tiring our selves out with mom and the pup it was time to get back across town to take dad out for his birthday. Even though his birthday was a week later, we had a couple things to celebrate so we let dad choose the place and we went to Papadeauxs for the first time with dad, his girlfriend, my sister, and us. And as I am typing this I realized I totally forgot to get pictures again! I've been away from blooging so long that I forget how many pictures it takes to keep this thing moving and interesting. We had a nice time, even without the camera. We had to get to bed early that night though, we left for the airport just before 7 the next morning to come back to Portland.
We had such a great time with the family and on the beach all week. Portland was sure to welcome us back with 58 degrees and rain, which is really my favorite weather anyways but that warm southern sun wasn't the worst thing :wink:

All good things must come to an end, like white sand beach vacations. We had to be back in town by 6pm, my middle sister had a work event Sunday evening. Josh and I were hoping for a little more beach time, we were really enjoying the warm waters of the gulf, but it ended up working out for the best. We ran out for one more dip in the ocean to play with the jelly fish.
|She was afraid of the jellies|
Then the same boring drive back to Lawrenceville, Georgia.
After we got home we cleaned up a bit and went out to see some new places in town and catch up with some friends. Although we spent most of the time talking about Game of Thrones and predicting all the theories we have for the end of the show, we still had a great time. It's so nice to catch up with people that you have known for over 10 years.
We even stayed out until almost midnight! Crazy hooligans.
