Outdoor Hour Challenge ~ Seasonal Weather Study ~ Autumn

First a little update on our pumpkin study:

the pumpkin we selected was only 8 1/2 inches tall, with a circumference of 26 1/2 inches. It weighed 6 lbs and we counted 21 lines on the outside of it. There were 397 seeds in that little pumpkin!
We dried the seeds and will be roasting them along with the ones that will come out of the pumpkins we will be carving very soon.

Now, on to the Seasonal Weather Study:

morning fog

It was very warm yesterday afternoon, but our night was cold. This morning we woke up to a blanket of fog. I thought it would be fun to go for a walk in the fog. My oldest daughter has a cold, so she stayed back along with Celeste. Andre, Orion and I went around the block. He was the photographer most of the time and had a great time!

The fog was so thick at first, but by the time we headed back home, it was already lifting. We found some beautiful dew and couldn't help taking more photos!

Andre also took a little video of the fog, about half way through our walk:

Here is our journal page completed for the seasonal weather study (it was so hard to do the fog, lol).

  1. Foggy day walks....they look so cold but the light is always so interesting in photos. Really great view of your world this autumn.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. I love the pictures of the vines and leaves - such beautiful details!
