A Day with Nana

My mom is here visiting and I love it. It’s always nice to have extra hands helping with Hailey, but the greatest thing about Nana is that she likes to play, too!


We started the morning off with me teaching her instagram over pumpkin spice coffees. Then I made scrambled eggs with red peppers, spinach and onions on half a bagel. It was so pretty, but I forgot to snap a picture. I considered remaking it it, photographing it and tossing it before I realized how absolutely crazy that sounded. #bloggerproblems

After breakfast we took off to find a pumpkin at Patterson Farms. First we teased the goats.


Then hung out with the ducks.


Then high-fived this momma pig (…and I thought it was rough with only 1!)


And finally picked out a bag of apples and 2 pumpkins.

Back home mom and I snacked on carrots and hummus while Hailey ate lunch.

Then we each had a bowl of sweet potato chili.

Hailey we down for a nap and we got to work.

Mom peeled our granny smiths and I made dough. Soon enough, we had ourselves one fancy pie.

It baked while we snacked.


Once Hailey woke up we went for a walk. After covering 3.6 miles, it was time to take on the pumpkin! H toddled around outside with the help of her stroller

while I attacked the pumpkin guts. Soon enough, we were all in it.

We let David take over while we went to feed Hailey dinner.

She ate what we ate- burrito bowls featuring crockpot taco slop over brown rice. Plus fixins.

That was my portion, not her’s Winking smile

The day faded away. I lit the pumpkin and David started a fire.

Finally it was time to kick up our feet and relax.


With apple pie ala mode, of course.

Luckily Mom and I are much better at making pie than snapping pictures of it because it was DElicious.

Another fun fall day, despite it being 77 degrees out. I’m ready for you, cold front! As always, thanks Jenn for hosting WIAW!

What’s your favorite pie?

I thought mine was pecan, but this apple was pretty awesome!

    What do you do with the pumpkin seeds you scraped out of the pumpkin?
    I ask because I read that some people roast them for a snack.
    Glad you and Hailey have your mother with you two. Great time with Nana :)
