Fall: Good for the Soul


I love the fall--apple and pumpkin picking, hiking, leaf collecting, corn mazes, hayrides, farms, crafts, fairs, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and more...

We've been fortunate to have some sunny, warm weekends, and so we've been spending every moment we can get in the great outdoors taking in all the beautiful, majestic glory around us.   Our days have been full--squeezing eight birthdays into a single month along with the season's festivities, but every single minute (both rushed and relaxed) has been worth it.  Yes, fall this year has truly been like "chicken soup for the soul."

Celebrating a friend's birthday at a nearby farm!

I love this picture (taken after feeding the goats.)

Ice cream at the farm!

One seriously noisy rooster.  (This guy never stopped!)

My little pumpkin.

I don't ever want to let go...

The one!

Daddy chose a different "one."

Being silly in front of the corn maze...

My mom and Lewie shopping for mums...

Shall we pick white, or yellow, or purple, or orange, or red?

Time to pick a pumpkin for my mom...maybe?

Yummy apples for sale.

Hiking w/ hubby...

View from the summit!  It looks like our "peak" weekend is holding off some.  There's still lots of green trees!

We just happen to have so many great farms around us! :) It looks like you had a great time! The pictures of you and Little Lewie are so cute! Hope all is well my friend! Have a great night!

  4. Me again! You can take that Mama's Little Nestwork button off now. I could not find the time to keep up with it. I really had some great ideas for it, but it took so much time. :/

  5. The picture of you and Lewie in the pumpkin patch is so cute!
