October Family Fun!

        This is our first fall season here in Cali and we were able to squeeze in some festive family events.  We went into the wine country of Temecula to Peltzer Farm and had a blast! There is pumpkin picking, petting area, pig races, train rides, pony rides, food and plenty of memories to be made. Its only open the month of October, but there is a winery located at the farm as well and they host weddings and much more throughout the year. 

    This past Saturday we drove down to Fallbrook and enjoyed the Myrtle Creeks Fall Festival . It is a two day event where there is local craft vendors, food, a hayride, goats to pet, and pumpkins to enjoy. It is much smaller than Peltzer Farm, but it makes for a nice easy morning outing and being able to enjoy the season. 

       Our church hosted a fabulous Trunk or Treat and Payton had a blast! We thought she might be hesitant with all the costumes and such, but once she caught on that going to each car she would get a treat we were more or less following her lead. Awesome family time and great way to reach out to the community. 

All cowgirls need some shades!

    Hope ya'll are having a blessed and wonderful fall season full of memories, and family time.

Autumn: The Magic Hour

              Fall has yet to show itself here in Cali. We have had cool mornings and breezy days, but nothing that sends that chill down your spine and has you running for your coziest sweater. I am not expecting a New England fall by any means, but highs in the mid nineties is down right discouraging. So for now I can only dream, and be inspired by images of fall and hope the weather takes a change soon. 

     Hope these images inspire you to dream...
