I love this time of year. There is such anticipation. Fall festivals, school plays, Thanksgiving planning, Christmas wishing. We have had to miss a few things this year (the Fair, Holiday Market, school Fall festival and a few other things) because of my surgery. I was beginning to think we would have to miss our annual trip of visiting the pumpkin patch as well. However, on Sunday we surprised the kids and made a spontaneous trip to Dream Fields in Union Springs and had the best time. The weather was perfect. We took my neice, Sophia along with us.
