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.

Don't worry I still like you even if you are a Canadian socialist. Just kidding. We miss you guys. Looks like things are good with you.

Sarah, I can't believe anyone would stop being your friend, even if they didn't agree with your political party affiliation! I am obviously a full supporter of Obama (it's nice to have some other LDS friends actually say they are too) and think your letter to the editor was terrific!

Those pictures are so fun. I can't believe you got ALL of those apples for free!! Our apple picking cost us $35 for a half bushel, which is probably a little less than what you had in that basket. Fargo seems like a cool place.

Those pics with the apples and pumpkins turned out fabulous. And, I'm so glad you got your letter published. I'm impressed you are getting your voice heard. And, there are no McCain fans in our house (other than my 10-year-old who heard some rumor about Obama wanting to lengthen the school day).

I love pumpkins and apple picking! How fun. It is still a little warm here in Indy, but we are getting cool weather at night and the leaves are starting to change. Yippy for fall (but that means winter is coming :(

Great blog, cute pictures, love the updates. We miss your family--and don't care which political candidates you are "for". I say may the right man for our country win. I'm torn on both in many ways, it's still all up in the air to me!
You go, Girl, with the newspaper article!

I LOVE the fall and the apples and pumpkins that come with it! I'm jealous that you got to pick all those apples for free! I just ordered a box of them, but they cost a whole lot more than free, and it's not nearly as fun!

Darling pictures! It looks like you are taking advantage of all fun that fall has to offer. Wish you were here! :-)

Way to use your writing/english skills Sarah! I know that I am not decided on anyone for President, but I love hearing what others have to say. It helps us all to be educated on the issues. Good for you to help put Autism Awareness back out there. Thanks for the info too!

Sarah,
I'm so proud of you for making your voice heard. I am inspired. I didn't know that about Obama, but it just adds to the reasons to vote for him. I wish you were here so we could talk about the debates and stuff. Looking forward to Thursday's VP debate? I am.
