It Finally Feels Like Fall

After another nearly 100 degree day yesterday, it was nice to wake up to a crisp fall feeling morning.  Bella and I remained snug in bed a little bit longer than usual.  The tea kettle whistle was a welcome delight.  Ahh, I just love autumn. 

There is much to do on our calender this weekend.  Tomorrow begins Homecoming with a parade.  I will ride my beach cruiser 'emma' to watch my son on the senior float.  Yes, my baby is a senior this year!  Then we will go to the football game.  Our team is #1 this year so it should be a good one.  Saturday is the homecoming dance, but in the day we have the Big Pumpkin Festival which brings in thousands from all over northern california.  It is one of the largest pumpkin contests in the country.  We also have our First Saturday Event in Old Town with many vendures, food, bands, and just a good time.   So we will ride our beach cruisers through Old Town and then on to the Pumpkin Festival.  Should be a lovely day to begin October. 

I almost forgot, my daughter Gracie got her drivers license today!
