Fall Y'all

I guess the good thing about sick days with Charley is that I can update the blog while snuggling.  Our has been just like every other fall.  Same activities but a year older.  It's fun to watch us grow:)

The first weekend we went camping with friends and had a blast trick-or-treating there!
We went to the apple orchard again for the fifth time!  So fun to have these photos.
Fall seems to be the worst for our sweet Bear.  We are already on round two of sickness with asthma flare ups.
But then there's this.  I LOVE this photo of her at Sonny Acres sporting the shirt Nana made her!
And the traditional How Talll This Fall.  The answers is TOO BIG!  My babies!  Where did they go?
I took a personal day to go to Johansens Farm with friends. JJ loved getting this pumpkin that was grossly overpriced.  Whatever.
We have some wonderful friends here in Chicago.  The Davises hosted a pumpkin party for the adults to watch baseball, the kids paint pumpkins and all of us eat!
Speaking of eating, I got the Halloween Villages for the kids to decorate.  They did that for about ten minutes and then this happened.  Oh well.
And that's a pretty good wrap up of our fall!

What Weekends Are Made Of!

***my Blogger app wasn't posting.  This was written October 1st.

Weekends have been great lately.  And they usually are in the Fall!  We took the kids to Kuipers for the fifth time a couple weeks ago! 5 years of family pictures in the orchard is so fun!
This is the first year both kids really understood what was going on!  Jackson was on the hunt for the perfect Apple and Charley was happy to munch on her's.
The best part about these photos is that Bryan has had the SAME glasses all five years.  The guy's in need of an upgrade!
Isn't he awesome? He's the nostalgic softie who made this family collage.  I chose a good one, for sure!
This sweet girls knows a good doughnut when she sees one! We all just had one...and a half.
I kinda freaked out a bit while the kids were on the tracktor and I saw how big they are now.  Where did my babies go???
This past weekend was a mini mommy vacation.  My friend Julie and her sister, mom, and friend were in the city to visit from Kansas City!  I happily tagged along as the fifth wheel and had an absolute blast!
We stayed busy but we could have done anything and it would have been perfect.
This photo captures it all.  Our friendship is 18 years old and is as good as new!
This weekend we are headed back to Jellystone for camping with Yogi Bear.  We upgraded to a site with electricity so hopefully we stay plenty warm! We'll post soon when we return!
