Fall Break

On Monday morning, we got up and headed to Atlanta. Kenny had a meeting downtown so Jess and I went along for the ride. We were able to check into our hotel early, so Kenny left us there for the afternoon. I tried for 2 hours to get Jess to take a nap and after no luck, called Toni and Chris, Kenny's sister and brother-in-law, to come over and visit! Shortly after they arrived, Kenny got back so we went across the highway and shopped for awhile and then went and had dinner. After dinner, everyone needed to head to their own "quarters" and settle in for the night.

Tuesday morning, Kenny, Jess and I left the hotel and headed for Burt's Pumpkin Patch. It was about 2 hours north of our hotel so we decided it would be worth the drive. It was a beautiful, but COOL morning. When we arrived at the pumpkin patch it was around 40 degrees. That didn't stop us and Jessica was amazed at all the pumpkins-so amazed we could not get her to look up for pictures-had to see all the pumpkins. After we selected our pumpkins, all we could get in the car, we started south. I am so thankful that we got up early so we were able to get back home around 4. It was a great trip and is always fun to take Jess-but so nice to be home in time for everyone to relax. It's also nice that Wednesday is Monday for Jess at school and Kenny at work-so we will all enjoy the short "work" week!!

At least she is trying to smile-can't stop looking at the pumpkins and all the other kids!
