Akin Fall Festival

Sunday afternoon My Mom and Morgan held their first Fall Festival out at their little river house. We all brought our own pumpkins to carve and we had my sister, Paige (located in NYC) and my Sister-in law, Cindy (located in South GA) to be the judges via computer. Even though mine wasn't a winner it was still fun and festive. We had great food and my Mom and Morgan went all out with Ham, Sweet Potatoes, Yeast Rolls, Green Beans, and for desert was individual, homemade apple dumplings. Can I get an Amen? It was heaven! Besides that we all just played around with the kiddies outside and caught up on each others lives a bit. Cope's parents came down, which was nice and even though Cope had drill he still made it just in time for dinner. Here are some pics from the fun fall afternoon:
