Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

Hard to believe that it is already officially FALL! The month of September has flown by. Last week Allie picked up a cold at school which spread quickly through our house. Poor Alexis was affected the worst and had a 102 fever for two days along with a bad cough and runny nose. Plus Alexis has not one but two molars coming in so she was not a happy camper. She went to the doctor and we were told she had a virus and there was nothing they could really do for her. She broke out in a rash on Friday and after calling the doctor back I was told that the rash was just another symptom of the virus and not to worry. Poor baby girl!

We are hoping to visit the pumpkin patch tomorrow if the weather is nice. We will be able to check off a few of the things on our "fall bucket list"-hay ride, pumpkin patch, corn maze, etc. For the past three years we have talked about going to pick apples at Carter Mountain Orchard in Charlottesville, VA but we just never make it there. This year we are determined to take the kids, so assuming nobody gets sick, we are hoping to go the weekend before Halloween. The views are great from atop the mountain and I think the kiddies will enjoy picking apples. I love apple pie and the kids love applesauce so it seems like a great plan ;-)
