'Falling' Around

Oh, Fall. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

College Football is everywhere

Cooler weather means sweaters, scarves, jeans, and boots.  

My anniversary is in October and my birthday is in November.

Thanksgiving is always a fun get-together with my husband's side of the family.

Fall means that winter is coming and THAT is my favorite season of all. I LOVE cold weather!!!

I know what you are thinking.  Why the heck do you live in Florida where it is the dead of summer 50 weeks out of the year?!  My answer?  I have no idea.  

Well, that isn't entirely true.  We live here because family is close so Canon can grow up with almost everyone around him.  That is more important than our love of cold weather...I guess.

Even though we don't really have fall weather, I want to expose Canon to the joys and activities that this season brings.  That means pumpkin patches, Halloween costumes, and hayrides.  Last week we did two of those things - with Canon's best friend.  Seriously, life just doesn't get any better than watching your three year old giggle and play with his best friend.


By now, you have probably noticed that I do not have any pictures of the family that we went with.  Here's the thing. I haven't spoken with their mother to find out if she is ok with me posting pictures of her babies. I mean, she doesn't even have a Facebook page, so it makes me wonder how much she really wants "out there".  Some people don't like that and I definitely don't want to have to stop taking pictures all together when the boys get together, so I thought I should clear it first.  I couldn't resist this one though since they are all playing together so well and you can't see their faces.  That's ok, right?

I don't usually like to edit my photos this much, but this picture just screamed "antique photograph" to me...if you don't look too closely at the very modern tractor.  

The corn box is always a hit...except with my kid.  No, he doesn't like the corn get into his clothes or in between his toes.  I can't say that I blame him because - gross - but I definitely try to push him into it because I don't want to pass all of my idiosyncrasies on to him.  The boy is going to have enough issues with just having us as parents.  No need to make it worse.


We had a blast wandering around and letting the kids play on the slides, swings, horse rides, and hayrides. I had cream soda for the first time - probably since high school.  Don't even get me started on the boiled peanuts.  Let's just say my mom was glad she wasn't there - I may have slapped her because they were that good.  I took about 350 pictures {that I actually edited} on this trip, but because the other kids were in most of them, they will be kept for our families' least until I get the ok.  Man, this being responsible thing stinks!

Happy Fall!


  1. Those photos really are beautiful, and the one of the boys playing together is so sweet! :)

    1. Thank you so much Erica! I thought it was sweet too. It is really wonderful to see your child develop friendships at such a young age.
