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
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 🙂
I rinsed them and am going to roast them today! I’m hoping to make them spicy with a little cayenne. I love crunchy pumpkin seeds!
I’m planning to roast some pumpkin seeds next wk. I’d love to hear how your spicy ones turn out beause that’s what I’m hoping to do! LOVE spicy! 🙂
Kaitlyn @Keeping up with Kaitlyn says
That pie looks ammmazzzzing! And so does your dinner! Sounds like you and H had a great day with your mom!
That apple pie looks amazing!
There is nothing better than spending time with baby, Mom and Grandma! I wish my Mom wasn’t so far away!
I feel ya! My mom lives 4 hours away, which is totally drivable, but it still feels too far!

That apple pie looks so perfect! I love apple, sweet potato, and blackberry!
I don’t know if I’ve ever actually had sweet potato pie. How sad! Is it similar to pumpkin pie in texture?
Kelli H (Made in Sonoma) says
It’s similar, but so much better! 🙂 Plus, I make mine with a marshmallow topping.
Brittany @Berries and Barbells says
I LOVE it when my mom comes to visit! Too bad she lives SO far away.
Are you planning on doing munchkin meals tomorrow?
Nope, Munchkin Meals will be next Thursday- every other week 🙂
Madeline @ Food Fitness and Family says
Sounds like a great day! My mom gets in town tonight and I cannot wait 🙂
Parita @ myinnershakti says
Such a fun day! Hailey is sooo cute!
And my favorite pie has to be chocolate pecan Kentucky Derby. YUM!
Tina @ Best Body Fitness says
Yay for mommy time! And that is the most genius pumpkin carving idea ever. It looks so pretty and classy….and I’m all for easier carving. haha!
Wow! That sounds like an awesome day!
Kristen @ notsodomesticated says
Wow, that was a fall-filled day!! Apple is definitely a favorite type of pie. I also love cream-based pies, like chocolate and Boston cream. Yum!
Matt @ The Athlete's Plate says
I <3 pecan pie! Apple is good too 🙂
What a perfect day with your mom & Hailey! I cannot get over how delicious the apple pie looks 🙂 🙂
Rachel Cooks says
Glad you’re still loving the taco slop! 🙂 We eat it often too. Looks like a perfect fall day with your mom and Hailey! How fun!
