great pumpkins.

First outing with a group of moms I barely knew. I remember being self conscious about her lack of adequate layers.
She ran around. She ate donuts. She had a ball.

First big outing with both of them. I flashed a group of 6th graders while trying to nurse. She threw a fit in the parking lot. I was in tears by the time we got home.

I love fall. I'm not exactly into Halloween, but I do love a good costume. And all forms of squash. And I love visiting our little local patch. This year, because our family has been hit with plagues, we managed to squeak into the patch 15 minutes before closing time on Halloween. Claire refused to smile for pictures in our usual spot. I have a handful of photos of her with her tongue out, in tears or glaring at me. I sort of love those pictures.

I'll share some of those tomorrow.
