My Love Affair with Fall

Glorious, wonderful, amazing, delicious fall.  With your pretty colors, crunchy leaves, pumpkins, apples, football, hoodies, perfect weather, outdoor farms and festivals, hayrides, pumpkin carving, Halloween, and family. 

I went up to Northern Virginia for the weekend to visit family and friends.  It was so exciting because I knew I would see friends and those extra hands would mean getting to do so many of the fun fall things I love and want to share with Kate and Connor.  I saw my mom for the first time since August and my grandparents for the first time since July.  I also got to see some good friends, hit the wonderful playground near my mom's (Clemyjontri Park for those in Northern Virginia), went to a pumpkin patch, and more.

Kate and Connor got to enjoy their first hayride...

And even fly a plane...

It's obvious that Connor is driving and Kate is sightseeing

It was a wonderful weekend.  It was my last planned road trip until after John gets home.  While traveling is an adventure and helps pass the time, I would be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to having my partner and best friend back to share the load with. 

I hope you are all enjoying the fall season!

What a great roadtrip, making memories during (their) deployments is so important.. love reading about the ones that you and the kids are making. Brings back fond memories from my time with our kids, when they were that age! (Plenty of road trips via I-64 to the Smoky Mountains!)

When I'm not chasing my two kids around town you will find me writing, taking too many photos, and researching the ten future areas the Navy could potentially (but probably won't) PCS us. We are fish out of water, landlocked at 7,000 feet. For now.
