Thank God I'm a Suburban Girl

"THAT DOES IT!" I screamed as we left last weekend's country outing. "NO MORE COUNTRY FOR US!"
Yes, my friends, it was another stinkin' debacle.
I took my peeps out to Scottsville for pumpkin picking at Sto*koe Farms. We pulled into an overflowing parking lot and noticed a line snaking out of one of the buildings. I went up to a woman who worked there and said "we're just here to pick pumpkins." Nope, no sir-ee. It cost $8/person to enter the farm - it would include all sorts of cheesy toddler-ish activities. We stomped out of there and I returned to my senses - we were not meant for country livin'. It's best when we stay within 5 miles of our home unless we are vacationing.
Ahhhhhhhhh, Pittsford. Nothing says farm livin' like Pittsford.....

Everyone chose a pumpkin.......... that s/he could carry!

The obligatory group shot. Frances kept trying to ditch the pack.......

The willing models.......

Frances was "terrified" when Lewie tried to scare her by sticking his hand out of the teepee.......

Day is done, mission accomplished.........

I have a blog?

You're not still thinking that Lewie is dating Sharon, right?
He broke up with her a couple of weeks ago.
He wasn't fazed when I told him that a person should actually know they are dating someone for a proper break-up to occur.

I have this strange fascination-repulsion-attraction to the country.
This weekend, I forced everyone into the minivan for a trip out to Cumming Nature Center in East Bumfk, NY. No one, including myself, could believe we wasted gas and time to go for a walk in the woods. "Why not an urban hike?" whined the Lawyer. "We could have just gone to a park by our house," added a snot-nosed kid. But what says "fall" like some good country air? Right?

The tree roots gave Frances the creeps......... imagine what could be lurking under there.......

Ana LOVED the water lilies......... photo courtesy of her..........

Ana went ninja style....................

How Autumnal................

The Lawyer was sure that someone was going to plunge to their death from this observation spot............. Amazingly, we all emerged from the woods intact.

Next weekend it's off to the pumpkin FARM - who knows where the minivan will takes us. MWWWWWAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH.
