Early Fall Activities

I love the fall. So, it wasn't hard for Deb to convince me to go on a fall drive with her. The colors were beautiful! But, man, it was cold! So, we stayed in the car most of the time. And she got some great pictures. Read more about our adventure HERE or HERE.
Then, this Saturday we took a super quick trip to the cabin to dig a trench so the spring run-off wouldn't wash out the cabin's foundation. It was beautiful up there.
The big girls swung on the swings while Jason swung a pick-axe. Eliza LOVED watching Laura and Sara from my Mom's arms as I pushed. Her little head just went back and forth and she watched them for a long time. I think she likes the cabin as much as the rest of us do. Don't you think this smile says it all?!
Then on Sunday, Jason's Mom had a celebration for the October birthdays in that family...there are a lot of them. And, I got some good pictures of the event.
Sara as the "statue" and very proud of herself

Laura catching up with Emily who couldn't make it to the princess party due to illness.
A new picture of Jason and his sibs. We needed a new one. Weight has been lost, hair changed, new glasses. Who knew adults could change so much in 2 yrs?! I know I'm biased, but isn't Jason so hot?! I love his new glasses!

Everyone enjoyed seeing Eliza now that she is so much more alert.


  1. We have had such a fun fall. Lots of time together as a family whenever we can get it. I just have the best girls in the world and love to spend all of my time with them. What can I say? I'm a lucky boy!

  2. We had so much fun going to see the leaves with you. I really need to get myself a mom van!

    Eliza is getting so big!

    (Don't tell his brothers, but I think you definitely picked the most handsome one!)

  3. The pictures are great and get a big thumbs up from me...I so glad you manage to have so much fun together as a family!
