Happy Halloween

Halloween festivies at our house...pumpkin carving and trick or treating.  We carved pumpkins Saturday afternoon.  The girls both did  most of the carving all on their own.  Tonight we did some trick or treating around the neighborhood and then went to HighGate Senior Center.  It was a fun night!

Spokane, WA

Picking apples
(I still can't figure this out....can't get this where I
want it!) Daddy helping pick the apples that were
out of reach.

Recently we had a few days off of school.  So, we decided to take a little trip.  We went to Spokane, Washington.  There were several attractions we wanted to see.  The first attraction was the Spokane Waterfalls.  You can take a gondola out over the falls.  The falls is located within Riverside Park.  There were several other attractions there like the Big Red Wagon.

The next attraction that we went to see was Green Bluff Growers.  This is an area where about 30 different farms let you come to pick their produce.  We picked apples from the tree.  We also visited several other farms and got squash and pumpkins. (Insert apple picking pictures here!)
We found some REALLY big banana squash at one of the farms
The Fall colors were beautiful!
 We also toured the town looking for letterboxes.  We found the 2 we were in search of.
