Life is so sweet sometimes!

Today was one of those memorable Fall days when you look back in say, the dead of Winter, and go "remember that perfect fall day?", you can't ask for better! It actually started yesterday with Princess testing for her Green Belt in Tae Kwon Do, (she got it be the way) then when we came home, her two friends came over to play and stayed the night. So this morning I woke up to a gaggle of girls all raring to go. We added a few more mommies and there kids, and off we went to Pumpkintown USA which is a fun place for kids of all ages. They only charge a few bucks to go through it, more to cover their cost of running it, and once there the kids can go through and see pumpkin people and pumpkin buildings, plus various other activities. The kids went wild! They had a ball, and we mothers had a ball watching them. The sun was out this morning, the trees were at their absolute best, and not one of the children melted down at all. The mothers got to chit chat and the kids got to run around like wild things. Who could ask for more? We got hungry and went up to where they were selling hotdogs, cider both hot and cold, apples coated with all sorts of yummy things, and popcorn, and a few other things I can't remember. None of the food was overpriced and it was delicious! Can someone tell me why hotdogs eaten outside on a Fall day taste close to heaven?!? The only time they come close is when you cook them on the grill in the summer and eat them outside. We then went back into Pumpkintown, and did it all over again! The air started to get more chilled and the clouds started to roll in, and the kids were all looking a bit peaky, so we all said our goodbyes and left. We came home, Princess and I, to a house that smelled wonderful as I started a pot roast in the crock pot this morning, dinner and now we are winding down toward bedtime. We're tired, but in that satisfied "boy did we have fun" kind of way. There are days that you know you'll remember when the kids are grown and this is one of them. I hope all of you have these memories to cherish, they make life worth living!
