Pumpkin spice and everything nice.




























































































Kittens, ponies, pumpkins and beautiful scenery. A fall day doesn't get much better than this. We followed the Mississippi river down to Red Wing. And finally climbed Barn Bluff. What a view! Then we crossed over to Wisconsin and drove all the way down to our favorite pizza place for dinner. The Stone Barn. But we made a few stops along the way.


Our first stop was in Maiden Rock. We were on a mission to get some bird seed bread at the Pelican bakery there. But the darn bread was sold out.


So our next stop was for pie cookies in Stockholm. Whew! I got the last 2 cookies.


Then on to Maiden Rock Apples. No fall road trip is complete without stopping at an apple orchard.


And lastly we found the sweetest little pumpkin patch. Cheap pumpkins in all shapes and sizes. Barn cats, ponies and smiles. Now for some pizza...


My Pop Out Kitty illustration will probably always make an appearance during my October posts. For more Halloween kitties visit http://www.gattinamycats.blogspot.com/
