I had to wait until I could download the camera to show you what we've been up to. It was definitely a "pictures-worth-a-thousand-words" kind of weekend.
We baked all day Saturday...
We turned them into these:
*Apple walnut bread (sugar-free and yummy!),
*Peaches and cream bread
*Baby pumpkin muffins
*Peaches frozen for cobbler later
Then, after Mass on Sunday, we stayed for the parish potluck (to which we brought some of our baked goods) and Catechism classes with the traveling Sisters.
While the Sisters were here, Catherine got to be tested for her first Holy Communion. And, guess what?! She will be receiving Our Lord for the first time on Christ the King Sunday at the end of the month! We're so excited! That was the hilight of the day, but we still had more fun to come.
After the potluck, we changed into play clothes, packed ourselves up, and brought ourselves and the rest of our baked goods up to the mountains to celebrate the season with some of our oldest and dearest friends at their annual fall outing. But, enough words; I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking!

On the Trail
(This trail is called "Hell's Hole Trail"! Can you believe it? Talk about a misnomer!)
It was a lovely day!
