~ LEAVES ~

I love fall, but... it's because of the weather that we normally have during this time of year. WHERE IS THAT COOL WEATHER??? I am missing it so bad. It's pretty bad when we are still wearing short sleeves and sandals and the temperature is 90 outside and in the 80's every single day. Not to mention that not even jackets are needed in the late evening. Absolutely crazy. I sure am glad it wasn't this way in 2000 or I would have been sorely disappointed on my wedding day - in regards to the weather that is, since we were married on 10/14. We are wanting to go camping in a couple of weeks, but it will be called off till cooler weather if it hasn't cooled down any before then. OK, I'll get off my high horse since none of y'all can help me out in this situation :) ha ha

On another note of fall weather, Lindsey played in the leaves for the first time Friday. We went outside to let her swing. I decided to rake some leaves around the swing set and I just kept raking and ended up doing a large area in our backyard. Needless to say, Lindsey ended up hardly playing on her swing set. She discovered the childhood joy of playing in the leaves. She started playing in them, jumping in them, throwing them, etc. without me even mentioning the idea so it must be instinct - ha ha! I was only able to grab some pics with my cellphone so not great quality, but at least I was able to capture the moment.

Have a great weekend!

I'm with you on that one! I WANT FALL!! We are going to UBC Old Fashioned Day today and it's just not the same! Can't pull out a sweater etc. It is going to be 90 today. Oh well I guess when it's 15 I'll gripe about that too!
