Beautiful Fall Weekend

It was a great fall weekend in the Ozarks!  We beat the rain to Silver Dollar City on Saturday afternoon for the Harvest Festival and watched them make cedar shingles using the power from this old tractor.  As the dark clouds gathered, we decided to move on and were the only people on the bus going back to the parking lot.
 On Sunday while David worked on his camp trailer, I went with Christina and Heidi to pick up Christina's new family member.  Our drive took us right by the same pumpkin place where I bought neat pumpkins last year, so we made a detour for these beauties.  I think we could have happily filled the car even more, but we needed to leave room for our new passenger.
 Here she is!  She seems to be leaning toward Molly for her name.  See that tiny pink tongue sticking out?
 She was the best little rider in the car, quite content to hang out in her carrier.  After some towel chewing and playing with a stuffed bear as big as her, she settled down for a nice long snooze.
It was a very fun weekend, but it sure was hard to get up and go to work on Monday!  Guess that is the price we pay.
