My favorite time of year is now in full swing and what better way to celebrate than to deal with a hurricane. Okay, maybe not. Hurricane Matthew threw a few punches our way last weekend and made traveling up to North Carolina for my Dad's wedding challenging but nothing we couldn't handle. I love autumn with the array of colors on the trees and the pumpkins everywhere. We don't get to experience that very much in Florida which is why it was all that more special heading up to Maggie Valley.
This was a local church that was near my parents' home (not where they were married). Every inch of the property was literally covered with pumpkins! I couldn't help but smile each time we saw it. On our way out of town, my husband snapped a drive-by photo with his phone.
As for the wedding, it was a wonderful time spent with family and I couldn't be happier for my Dad and Step-mom. The church was nestled in the mountains up on a steep cliff with some breathtaking views. While it rained all morning and before the ceremony, things cleared up for us to take some family photos.
I feel like we have so few formal photos of my little family that I just had to share this one. Now if we could just get my son to smile without gritting his teeth!
