Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!  My daughter is dressed as Pippi Longstocking this year inspired by my recent trip to Sweden and nostalgia from my childhood.  I watched every Pippi movie including the Swedish ones that were dubbed in English as a kid.  In Stockholm, I visited Junibacken, which is really a sight for very young children just because I wanted to see Villa Villa Kula (a re-creation of Pippi's house) in person.  I was almost the only one without small children riding the Astrid Lundgren ride except for one other lady who I happened to run in to who was there for the same reason.  I brought home a Pippi book and doll and my daughter is now a fan too!

I decorated our front porch with Pinterest inspired pumpkins.  I have no carving skills  and had some leftover gold spray paint and chalkboard paint from other projects so this worked out perfectly.  Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday!

Pumpkin Patch

Those Swedish wedding photos are coming soon...but first I wanted to document our trip to the pumpkin patch.  It was so fun to take Riley this year, because she really enjoyed it and the precious moments she shared with her friends were so fun to capture:

We are off tomorrow to San Diego, and we hope to squeeze in a day trip to Disneyland as well.  When I come back, wedding and Stocckholm photos are up next!
