Fall is a comin'

Today was a wonderful day. There was a strong fall breeze blowing and it was just so nice. The kids and I went to the park to play. Right after we got there a little dog wondered up. In the neighborhood we live in, it's very odd to see a dog walking around without it's owner. So I waited a few minutes to see if anyone would come up and claim him, but they never did. Thankfully the dog had on some tags so I called the number and its owner didn't realize he was gone. So she and her husband came to the park and got him. The kids had a good time playing with him while they could.. well except Nathan. He wasn't too happy about me holding the dog and he surely didn't want to pet him either. Oh the dog's name was Pedro.

This evening Kent decided to finally trim the hedges so the kids and I went out and helped him pick up all the trimmed limbs. It was so sweet to watch the kids be so helpful. Even Nathan was picking up the leaves and trying to put them in the trash can. It was really nice to look up and see all of us working together to get the yard work done.

Today was just a really laid back kind of day. I'm hoping the fall weather continues. Days like today, when nothing really happened but still turned out so great, are really nice surprises.

It was a lovely fall day here, too.

Yard work is fun when you work together to get it done!

It is beautiful right now. I've always claimed that I was a summer girl but I don't know Fall is growing on me!! I wish we had a yard to do yard work in, condo life is not fun especially with a growing little girl who wants to play outside. Breaks my heart. Hopefully one day soon we will be able to find some good renters or sell.

What is this Fall you speak of? It's still in the 90's here. :(

Haha, Karen! Don't feel bad.. when it's still freezing around here you are able to go to the beach and actually enjoy it. I'll be envying you come Feb and March!

I agree. Fall is the perfect time for family.

Well, anytime is a good time for family...but for whatever reason, autumn seems extra magickal. :)
