My favorite time of the year is fall. I love the colors - red, orange, purple. And I love fall activities - hayrides, fall festivals, bonfires, corn mazes, trick-or-treating. Here's Scamp in her Halloween shirt. She was getting ready to go on her first hayride.
My parent's have a hayride/bonfire/haunted trail every year. This year my sister created a scavenger hunt on the trail through the woods behind my parent's house. My older cousins dressed up and hid in the woods while my younger cousins and friends went on a search through the dark for prizes. What a blast!
Scamp and I rode in the cab of the tractor with my dad on the hayride. She fell asleep halfway through, and we ended up riding the rest of the way with my mom. She followed the hayride in her car.
My dad typically takes a rode up through a hollow on some friend's land. My mom parked the car to ride the trailer at this time, but Scamp and I stayed in the backseat since she was sleeping. Mama locked us in with the keys inside. When she returned and tried to get in, the alam started going off. I couldn't move since Scamp was asleep in my lap. Every time I would manually unlock the door and my mom would pull the door handle, the car would lock back! Finally, we opened the door in collaberation, and she had to climb over me to get the keys. Needless to say, Scamp slept through the whole thing!! Posted by Picasa
