Fall Festival! {1}

Fall weekends around here bring us tons of options for fall festivals, corn mazes and pumpkin patches! This picture was taken at the Merrymead Farms pumpkin patch. It's Moses with the 10 commandments. Notice the only one written in English is "Thou shalt not steal!!"

After Irene

After Hurricane Irene came through there was various levels of damage around our area. This is the parking lot of the Chart House, a restaurant along the Delaware River. You can see the debris from where the river flooded up into the parking lot!

The Worst Chore Ever

Without a doubt the worst chore is shoveling out your car. It very time consuming and difficult and sometimes you still can't even get your car out in the end!

2010 Year in Review

I wanted to do some post counting down my favorite pictures from 2010, but the time slipped by me with all the busy-ness of the holidays! However I still want to do my "Year in Review" and today is the first picture, which is my favorite picture from last January. A lot of you who follow me now didn't read back then, so I thought it would be fun to share some of these "older" photos!

Mummers Parade, 2010.
