Good times in the Pope House this weekend. Brad and I hosted our 3rd Annual Catfish Campout though we're going to have to change the name of it since no one seems to campout after the first year =) A small crowd of 25-30 showed up to deep fry anything we could get our hands on including green beans, mushrooms, zucchini, macaroni and cheese, pickles, Reese's PB Cups, pizza, strawberries, and my favorite...bananas. Sadly, no catfish made it into the oil or out of the lake for that matter.

Saturday was a lazy yet fun day outside enjoying the beautiful fall day. Quinn and I spent over 2 hours coloring with chalk on the driveway (his new favorite thing to do) before coming in and cooking in my new kitchen for the first time. The kitchen, by the way, is GORGEOUS! I am so pleased with it...pictures to come when it is 100% complete.
After a freezing cold 8.5 mile run this morning, the temperatures finally started to rise and we decided to go to the pumpkin patch. Well...I chose a LOSER pumpkin patch (that's for sure). The only pumpkins they had were in a trailer and there was nothing else to do there. Next weekend, I'm thinking of doing a little detective work and finding a REAL pumpkin patch to take Quinn to. Nonetheless, we had a good time. Quinn liked climbing around in the pumpkins and testing his brute strength while lifting up the biggest pumpkins.

After a weekend like this, I truly question who decided that weekends should only be 2 days long?!!?!
