It doesn't seem possible but I suppose we are right into the very heart of fall! There are beautiful leaves all around and hiking at the park is something I can't get enough of.
It's even fun when it is wet and you need wellies!
But then comes those soccer mornings when the temperatures are in the mid-40's and it seems WAY too cold!!!!
We still seem to be receiving magnificent cloud days.
Laura got to go to the dentist. She was disappointed she couldn't take the glasses home. :(
We met Grandma at the park to check out fall picnic locations.
And we met Mr. & Mrs. Duck.
Laura is often my little shadow. Here she is making her own collages while I got ready for calligraphy class.
On Friday our friends from Michigan came down and we spent several hours at Eagle Creek. First we took a nice hike around the lake.
And I found a Fuzzy Wuzzy! I love them. They are so cute and remind me of being a child.
Laura decided to carry him around.
The trees are turning but are not yet at their peak.
Then we went to our chosen spot for lunch and Mr. & Mrs. Duck showed up!
Tracy got a nice fire going for hotdogs.
And I fired up the camp stove for hot cider and baked beans.
Oh yes! This is definitely fall fun at its best!
Finally the mothers could sit down for a little rest.
And the kids had a blast!
S'mores ended the meal.
Laura was the last one cooking.
And then we ended the week with a final soccer game. Andrew has really enjoyed this season.
And now we are on our two-week, stay-home, family vacation. A good time to take a break and some time off the internet.....I'll be back with our adventures at the end of October.
