That One Busy Weekend in October

This weekend was busy. Good busy, just to get it straight. It started on Wednesday when we went to a pumpkin patch in Sacramento. Luckily we chose to go on a hot weekday, so it wasn't crowded and we could literally enjoy the entire thing. On weekends it is always so packed and filled with screaming parents and kids...not as much fun. Don't get me wrong, if a weekend is the only time you can go then by all means. We were just fortunate to go on a Wednesday, get sunburned {it was 97 degrees after all}, and pick three cute pumpkins. 

This looks like we were kissing. We were not. We don't like PDA, so when I saw this shadow I had to take a photo of it. Too funny. This was on our hayride to the pumpkin patch where I almost fell off the thing, laughed a lot and was scared for my life...after all I am a big city girl - no wonder I freaked out. We ended up getting three pumpkins we have waiting at home for their turn to be carved and eaten. :)

On Friday right after school we drove south to Bakersfield and enjoyed some time with friends and family. It was nice to get away and be around familiar faces and just people for that matter. I spend most of my time at home by myself, and have occasional talks with a few turkeys or spiders I kill {haha} but that is about it. Getting away just for a couple of days was a blessing. Bakersfield isn't around the corner and the normal four hours turned into five long hours. We didn't hit much traffic but enough stupid drivers not knowing how to drive safely. Ridiculous. We made it in one piece back and forth, and I cannot wait to go back south soon again!!

We went to parts of Kern River...amazingly beautiful, and clear. Loved to walk around the water. My feet have not felt happier. Also, we played with dogs, had fun conversations, and a wonderful get-together!

You have seen this lady before. She used to be my roommate, but since my life changes we live in different parts of this wonderful state of California. Also, I wanted to eat the dog's ears. She's the cutest dog; at least she smile while I took out my scary October face.


I cannot smile. I look like a weird robot...but at least the reflection in the water was beyond gorgeous; hence me sharing this with you. Oh and I also brought my purse to the river. Good thing, I had space for multiple cell phones so no one would drop theirs...and I made sure nothing went into the water that did not belong there. :) 

Wish I could go back there next weekend. 

How was your weekend?
Any fun fall activities planned for the next few weeks?!

Going to wine tasting next weekend, and spend some time with family. Cannot wait. Besides, it is cooling down. Finally. FINALLY. I am so over those 90+ degrees.

Happy Monday!!

P.s. Linking up with Leeann over for her weekly Monday Morning Gossip linkup!

97 degrees? Oh man that sounds terrible when we're midway through October. We're in the 60s with rain. It sure feels like fall over here, so come visit!
