Family Fall Day and Girls' Annual PF Shopping Trip

We had a family fall day last weekend at Mom and Dad's house. We had a cornhole tournament and carved pumpkins. It was a blast!
Here's Matt and I carving our pumpkin!

Here is our finished pumpkin unlit.
And here's the best picture I could get of it lit.

Watching the cornhole tournament, waiting for our turn.
All the girls (minus Mom and Libby) with the food.
Peter and Scott playing cornhole.
Ben and Dad playing cornhole.
Mom, mid-throw and Brianna.
Trying to catch some action shots.
The teams were: Nicole and Sam, Mom and Dad, Scott and Ash, Peter and Bethany, Ben and Bri, and Matt and I. The tournament came down to Scott and Ash verses Mom and Dad, the final game was never played. It was double elimination and our two losses were to these two teams.
I didn't get any shots of Libby at Fall day, but I did get a few when we were picking out the pumpkins on our annual Girls' shopping weekend in Pigeon Forge. I didn't get a ton of pics, but here are a few that I did get. None of them were during our actual shopping, as the stroller was loaded down enough without adding my camera to the pile, but I would have loved to get a picture at the end of all our bags. Libby did great (considering) shopping for two days. She enjoyed a scrambled egg and some pancakes with peanut butter syrup (the best!) from Pancake Pantry.
Picking out our pumpkins.
"Is this a good one?"
"No, I think this one is better."
"These are all shaped very funny. I don't think they would work."
"Ah, now here is a pumpkin worth keeping, Or eating!"
Libby's pumpking choice.
Libby's first pumpkin shopping trip with Mom.
And so begins Libby's first Fall.
I did download thise pictures when I said I would, I just haven't had a chance to finish the post till today. Computer problems. I do have a few more pictures to post, but hope to get a bunch more. We were hoping to go to the zoo this past Friday, but weren't able to because of the rain. We hope to try again this Friday. And if the weather clears, I hope to get some awesome tree shots in the mountains this week. Don't know when I'll post them if I do get any. So, tata for now!

I love the pumpkin lit up! Where did you come up with that idea?

Where is that pumpkin patch where you got the pumpkins at?

We combined a couple of ideas we saw on the internet and came up with our pumpkin. Matt drew most of it in and we carved it together. It's definitely our best pumpkin yet.
The pumpkin patch is on the way up to Pigeon Forge, maybe in Wears Valley.
