Autumn in Grand Rapids = summer days and giant pumpkins

Hello.

Today was a gorgeous day, temperature in the 70s, not a cloud in the sky... just what you would expect for fall. I guess someone didn't see their shadow.

The ladies and I went to Meijer Garden this morning and had a lovely picnic lunch and then walked to their Replica Farmhouse exhibit to see the giant pumpkins that had been set out. There isn't that much to tell (I can hear the collective "whew," I know you only come for the pictures). Basically we posed Lyla next to pumpkins that were almost the same size as her and watched with enjoyment to see her reactions. We ended up getting a bunch of great photos in the process. Here you go:
