This afternoon after church we visited the harvest celebration at a local farm, an outing that pretty much exemplified all of fall's goodness in one fell swoop.
The hay ride took us along gravel roads and muddy paths, giving us a small glimpse of the farm's 800 acres in the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.
We found three perfect pumpkins,
We milked a wooden cow,
enjoyed the simple bounty of a truck bed filled with gourds,
and pretended to drive a John Deere tractor.
It's remarkable how such simple pleasures can fill up your heart and renew your spirit. Oh, yes, I love the fall.
