We carved pumpkins the week before, and the best part seemed to be post-carving, when Dash could take the top off the jack-o-lantern over and over and over (and over!) again. Note that the pumpkin was not lit--he was just a little too interested in it. We were able to light it during trick-or-treats, but that was it. Then I proceeded to leave it in our entryway a bit too long, and threw out a very gross pumpkin earlier this week. Yuck.
Dashiell has been loving the leaves this fall, and I tried showing him how to jump into a pile of freshly raked leaves. He mostly just waded in. I, however, found out why you don't see many adults jumping into piles of leaves--they don't offer much padding when you land, and you land much harder when you're big than when you're small!
I should have some new professional photos to put up on the blog soon - Meghan of Megpix Photography was able to get some really great pictures of Dash (he didn't protest for once!), I just need to pick out which ones we want!
Happy Fall, everyone!
