“Doctor” Little Lady helped me carve our pumpkins.  She successfully
removed the patient’s guts.

Little Man had a friend over and he showed him how to play
Statis Pro Football.

To my surprise, his friend actually liked it.
(Mind you this is the 1986 season)

What a difference a day can make!

It rained all night!  Mom and Little Lady thought our tent was going
to fly away.  Our big Coleman was strong and there was no water
inside the tent in the morning.

The rain was part of a cold front that moved through.  It was supposed
to a low of 51 today.  At 1pm it was 42 degrees!

So overnight, it was in the high 30’s.  With the rain, the air was damp,
which made it feel even colder.

Mom hardly slept, worrying about the kids.

Here, we played a little football before packing up.

I made the call to come home.  It was only going to be
even colder.

Tired and cold, my hardy family headed home.

This was our humble campsite at Shades State Park.  This day was
beautiful with a high over 80 degrees.

Trail 4 has an easy hike down to Sugar River.  We all went rock hunting.

On the way back, the “trail” is rugged, and follows a
creek bed between rocks.

Thankfully, there were ladders in the hard to climb places.

Looking back, from the top of the ladder at the “trail”.

“Look, bunk beds!”

I hung with Little Lady, trying to keep her shoes
from getting too muddy.

A happy moment, usually overlooked if you are not collecting a
daily pictorial log of your life.

Little Man started basketball practice again.

It seems like baseball was just over and the next season begins.

The girls got up and walked the canal downtown.

Little Lady…. reading?  What a shocker.  I am surprised
Aunt J got her out of there.

After dropping off Little Lady, Aunt J picked up Little Man!

My little pumpkin picked his own pumpkin in the patch.

Little Man braved the bungie trampoline, but could
not quite land a flip.
