EVER LOVIN’ SATURDAY ~ FUN WITH GRANDPEEPS!
Grandpeeps Shelby and Elijah spent the afternoon with us. We enjoyed lunch at the D.Q. and yummy frozen treats for dessert.
Headed over to the pumpkin place to check out all the goodies there.
Shelby was on a quest to find the tiniest pumpkin.
Elijah loves the gourds and squashes and picked out some gnarly ones.
Shelby found her itty bitty pumpkins. She says they’re like kittens and puppies ~ so cute you can’t help oo-ing and ah-ing over them.
We always seem to find one like this and have to take a picture because it’s so funny [in a self-explanatory way, wink wink].

Later, after the Vols lost a heartbreaker to the Dawgs, we finally put down our electronic devices and headed outside to soak up some more of this gorgeous day.
We went for a walk, and Elijah threw the Frisbee with Grandpa.
Street Frisbee ~ got to watch out for cars ~ not only so they don’t run over you, but also so you don’t smack one with the Frisbee
For me, Autumn/Fall is the most wonderful time of the year.
The temperature is perfect, the sky is a deep blue you don’t much see throughout the rest of the year, and the clouds are simply awesome.
On our trek around the block, we walked through Capshaw woods. Neil spotted this spider’s web stretched between a tree and the ground. It was glistening in the sunlight ~ otherwise, we might have walked right into it. Hard to take a picture of it ~ kept getting sun flare.
Shelby and Elijah love to walk through these woods. Who needs electronics when you can scratch your name in a tree trunk with a stick or fly through the air on a vine like Tarzan?
The leaves are starting to turn. That’s always bittersweet. Good times with the grandpeeps! Hope your Saturday was awesome!
