Camping, pumpkin patch, & warmer weather coming

I tried to go camping with my brothers a few weeks ago, but it would have been a washout. So rather than wet weather we braved the cold weather.
We met up at Mohican State Forest and hiked about 3/4 of a mile to our site.
Then hung out a little before the sun went down.
We hiked the rest of the distance down to the stream, which was about another 3/4 of a mile.
But it was actually really serene. 
Marcus loved the area for some real photos... not just my cell phone photos. 
So back to the campfire to warm up and hang out.  No photos from overnight... but BOY was it cold.
And we were all a little loony by they morning.  Warm up, pack up, hike back.
What a picture perfect place.
Clark was brave/dumb enough to ride his motorcycle.  Wind chills on the bike would be below 0°.  I took the warmer car option.  I love riding, but when it is that cold... pass.
This photo was on the way back Saturday morning... and the picture just doesn't quite do the fall foliage justice.  
Saturday afternoon Dawn, Summer, and I went to Kuhlwein's Farm Market to get pumpkins.  It was a bit chilly, but a PERFECT day to get our fall decor on.
Summer liked it at first... this was waiting for the hayride.
Still smiling...
Then she started showing us how much she liked the cold temperatures...
We did do a corn maze.
But Summer was not a fan of the cold, breezy weather.
Nope.  Not having it.  (And yes... these pictures are in chronological order)
Saturday night we went to a friends to watch the Ohio State game... I slept through most of the game, honestly.  It is so hard to stay up late now that I wake up at 1:15AM five days a week.  Yesterday my dad and sister came up and we hooked up the Slingbox to watch the Browns game.  We also had the Bengals game on as well... The Browns are so frustrating...
Warmer temperatures on the way, but a chilly, frosty start to the week. Morning temperatures near or just below freezing for you Monday. Plenty of sun on the way for the afternoon with highs getting into the low 60s. Milder weather returns with highs near 70 for much of the rest of the extended forecast. A couple chances of rain on the way as well on Thursday and also on Sunday.  Otherwise dry and fall-like.  Have a good one!
