We picked four pumpkins this year...two of which are HUGE! They're so pretty, I kinda don't want to carve 'em up. Especially the Fairytale ones. They're almost too squat-y to carve anyway and this will be a nice excuse to keep then around through Thanksgiving.
While we were over the hill, we also trekked back to Davenport's Roadhouse for a late lunch. Their menu is never the same since they change it up to work with what's seasonal and what's local. It's such a smart set up. It does mean, however, that their menu is very small...which can be tough for a gluten-free pregnant girl. I still ate a delicious salad and was introduced to a new vegetable: Watermelon Radish. They were raw & thinly sliced over the salad. Who knew I'd actually love them? They're called that because when you look at the slices, the edges are a marbled green, then a layer of white, then the middle section is a deep pink/red. I just hope we can actually find them at the store because, let's face it, it's rare to find a vegetable that I will voluntarily eat.
We also got to stop at Donnelly's Chocolates for a little treat. Mine have already been eaten - I have no self control. If we haven't taken you there when you visit, DEMAND that we do next time you're in. It's, hands-down, the best chocolate I've ever eaten...and I've had my fair share of chocolate in my day.
And, of course, while we were pumpkin picking, we had to take a "bump" picture to show off being at 22 weeks.
Pretty good day when you get to take a picture in front
of a hill of pumpkins AND the ocean!
Drew is so camera shy...these couple shots are the
only ones I can convince him to be in!
