October: Pumpkin Patch, State Fair, and Halloween

We had an awesome October that started with a trip to the pumpkin patch, included a few trips home, an anniversary trip to Asheville for Lee and I, and a visit to the State Fair, and ended with a really fun Halloween. And somewhere in there, Ava started walking, so I'd call it a pretty successful month.

First up, the pumpkin patch. We went to Green Acres farm in Cary and even though the weather was more like summer than fall we had a good time.

Ava got to pet a rabbit:

And go on a hay ride:

And see cows and goats:

And of course, pick out pumpkins:

A few weekends later we hit up the State Fair.

There were delicious cookies:

And huge pumpkins:

And baby calves nursing:

And cute children showing ewes:

And those Click It or Ticket things from when I was a kid:

And watching the Agricadabra magic show from daddy's shoulders:

And fair naps:

While mama and dada ate ribbon fries!

We also got Ava's silhouette hand-cut in the Village of Yesteryear:

Ava said "moo" to all of the cows, and all-in-all it was a pretty awesome day.

And of course, the cherry on top of October was Halloween. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the cutest pig in America:

She even learned the sound effects to go with her costume.

Ava's daycare had a Halloween parade that was fairly adorable.

Then we went trick or treating with our neighbors.

She was so happy to sit in her wagon and clutch her pieces of candy:

It was such a fun night (and month). Ava's at a really fun age right now and we're enjoying getting to see her personality blossom and seeing her learn and show off something new every day. I can't wait to see what she's like at Christmas :)
