The perfect day

This year we missed the pumpkin patch. We had one place in mind and on a sunny Saturday we loaded kids in the car and drove to Deseret Village. When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised by the lack of lines and plenty of parking spots. Once we walked past the gate of the Village, we realized that we came a week too late. Pumpkins were gone and there were very few people walking around...

Bingo! We missed the crowds! Who cares about pumpkins? Being able to let our kids run around freely and play in any child-sized house without waiting for a dozen of other kids to take their turn was the best treat ever. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the trees were still sporting their brilliant colors and the temperature was *perfect*... It really couldn't get any better! Well, actually it did, because we also got to go on a 'train' ride.

We spent wonderful time there, Mark was trying to keep up with Maya and Elijah, I was carrying Anya and taking photos... No hurry, no worry :)

What a lovely day! The purple of your wrap is such a perfect shade; did you dye it yourself?
