Pumpkins Aplenty, Autumn in the Midwest

We have been in the Milwaukee area this week-end celebrating my mom’s 90th birthday.  A country drive yesterday put us in this scrumptious area where I snapped these shots.  An impeccable farm with pumpkins galore.

The Midwest sky changing by the minute and within no time there was a loud crack of thunder (which sends Bailey immediately into shaking mode, poor bug, breaks our heart) and the rains began.  A little while later is was clear again.  We were able to sit outside for more of a visit, and within the next hour the rains & thunder were back.  All a reminder of my childhood and the intensity of that heavy rain, which I always loved.  We head back to Seattle this eve.  What a wonderful fete to ring in her next decade.
