Change in the Weather

It's officially fall here in Portland.  It's been cold, and dark and wet for a couple weeks.  I think the weather is putting the whole family in a funk.

On nice days we try and get out and enjoy what remains of the sunshine.  Our recent trip to the pumpkin patch was a lot of fun.

We got one big pumpkin for the family and then told Flora she could have her own pumpin but she had to carry it.  She tried a few big ones.

In the end she settled for something a little smaller.

Unfortunately the nice days have, and will continue to be, few and far between.  It's supposed to be a particularly cold and wet winter.   Mount Hood has opened it's ski lifts already, if that is any indication of what it's been like here in Portland for the last few weeks.  Fortunately, there are more and more indoor activities that Flora enjoys.   Her favorite is playing music.

How do you plan to keep your family happy for the long winter?
