It was a beautiful fall day, with the grape leaves starting to fade into yellow.
We found about 10# of grapes that hadn't been eaten by the birds.

The leaves and blue spots in the sky were another highlight.
The younger kids got into the festive celebration with their own party.
We even had some dry ice left over from a church party during the week that gave a nice fizz to the drink.
