Christy, Hannah, and I are planning on attending no fewer than four, yes four, [Autumn/Fall/Harvest] [Gatherings/Parties/Outings] before the end of October.
The first was on Saturday. Christy's work was hosting it at Grandmas and Grandpas Pumpkin and Gourd Patch, here in Anderson.

Even though the event began at 4:30pm, I was running sound for a wedding at our church which also began at 4:30m. We didn't get there until close to 6:30 and it was already getting dark, so the first thing we did was had Hannah pick out which pumpkin she wanted from the pumpkin patch.
It wasn't terribly cold, but the wind sure gets going out in those Indiana fields, so we tried to dress for cold weather.
They were running a tractor with a wagon for hayrides, but we just missed the last trip. Hannah wasn't happy about that...
...but, they had marshmallows. Hannah was happy about that (as you can see)! They had the rest of the stuff for making s'mores. So Christy roasted a few and we had s'mores. They also had hot dogs, chips, drinks, etc.
Obligatory bonfire shot
All in all, a good time was had by all. It was very nice for Christy's work to give the opportunity to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. It would have been better if we'd gotten there a little earlier, but we've got three more opportunities to catch anything we missed this time.
