Fall Fun With Aunt Carrie

Aunt Carrie came and spent a quick weekend with us. Almost as soon as she arrived, Trent and I ran out the door for a much needed date night—thanks Carrie. While Carrie and Currier ordered pizza, watched movies and ate popcorn, Trent and I enjoyed an evening out—just the two of us. We shared a bunch of savory appetizers at a Greek Restaurant, hit Dunkin Donuts for decafs, walked around Lowe's and dreamed of future home improvements (I know this sounds lame but we had two hours to spare until our movie started and driving around burning gas is not an option in this economy!), sat at a Tapas bar and watched a bit of the Red Sox game and then saw Burn After Reading at the theater while eating contraband candy. It was a great date and will probably be our last for a long time.

The following day, we all went to Boone Hall Plantation to pick out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. The line was very long and Currier was hungry and tired so it didn't turn out to be as fun as I expected but Currier did pick a magnificent pumpkin that we hope to get around to carving before Halloween.
