We enjoyed a few days with family in Charlottesville for Thanksgiving. We were able to use the new fire pit several times. The kids love sitting around the fire and they played outside for the majority of the time we were there. They enjoy playing with their cousins also and of course tractor rides and hikes!
I organized a neighborhood get together prior to trick or treating for all the families with children. It was a fun way to get to see our neighbors that we don't see that often (after pool season!) We ate pizza and snacks and enjoyed some time before making our way out for trick or treating.
It is an annual tradition to visit Carter Mountain each fall with the Rettig/Peterson/Ertel Families. This year the weather made for an interesting trip, up to that day the weather had been super warm but a cold front came through and the wind was strong. The wind made it feel frigid up on the top of the mountain. When we were picking apples we were find, on the hills, but on the top of the mountain where the donuts are shops are it was freezing! So, we ate our donuts rather fast and went home. We all had plenty of apples to enjoy. Carter ate about 4 or 5 apples just while we were picking them.
