Grand Ole Pumpkin Patch

Today, Will, Catelyn and I headed to Clanton to visit the pumpkin patch. We had such a great time, and couldn't have asked for better weather. We rode on the hay wagon, picked out a pumpkin, visited the indian tipi's, saw some animals, and topped it off with a caramel apple (my FAVORITE!!). I love days like this where there isn't an agenda, just quality time with your family. Man, I love the fall!! On a side note, I'd like to make a shout out to the Tide- it was a nerve racking win, but a win no less. 7-0 ROLL TIDE!!
