Apples and Pumpkins
It's fall here in Fargo, and we are enjoying every minute of it. We went to the Fall Festival Saturday and enjoyed the pumpkins and the kids LOVED the pony rides.
Whitney and I went apple picking in the orchards in South Fargo. It's totally free, and we got a ton of apples. We could have got more, but we didn't bring bug spray and were getting eaten alive. Literally. They spray here for mosquitos (the planes fly over your house, and it sounds like they're going to take your roof off). At first I was wondering what the health implications are for all that lovely pestiside. But now, after being paranoid we contracted West Nile, I think I rather have pesticides and not be eaten alive. It really was bad--my friend Lisa wore flip flops and her feet were COVERED with mosquitos. Next time I guess we'll bring the spray.
And some more Whitney love. I curled her hair one Sunday with rags--it turned out really cute, but I didn't get a chance to get a picture of the final project :( And her first day of preschool. That girl can't smile without making a goofy face!
And finally, if you made it to the end of this post, I got a letter to the editor article published in the Fargo paper. You can click on the link to read it. I'll warn you though, it's political, and if you still want to be my friend, and if you don't think you can be after knowing which candidate I support, then don't click on it, and we can still be friends. If you don't care, then go ahead and read the article. Don't forget, I have Democrat and Republican friends out there, and I'm not antagonistic to either side.
