Ever since the autumn equinox we have had sunny, warmish weather. Every day has been lovely, but hasn't felt like autumn. Today was cool and crisp, windy and ever changing. It felt just like fall. We dug out some fleeces and hats, put on warm pants and long sleeves, and hit one of our favorite wooded parks. This time of year we want to be surrounded by trees - so we can listen to the wind in the leaves and see the amazing colors.
Of course the boys also love this park not only for the trees, but because some of the equipment is made of WOOD. A more natural looking tower - perfect for forts and ships and adventures. They LOVE that.
I love fall. I am not a warm weather person at all and look forward to the colder air. It was so nice to stand bundled up, even cold enough that the boys asked for gloves (um, haven't dug them out yet!).
As they played the clouds rolled in, the skies darkened, and the wind picked up. The boys ran for the warmth of the car, fingers numb, noses and cheeks red. We drove to a local bakery for some sweet treats and warm drinks. A wonderful fall afternoon.
Tonight it is going to be 32º - bye bye mosquitoes, and good night garden. Love it!
different, so big. Today I took a photo of A when he was talking to his brother about something, and he had such a look. Yes, so different, so big. So amazing to watch, this big kid of mine.
