Our Past Week of Autumn

Leading up to the bday event we had quite a few fun fall days. On Thursday we went to the pumpkin patch with Cole's preschool group. We had a great time. It was wonderfully chilly, I loved it...except for the fact that I only wore a sweater, my bad. Overall the day was marvelous, we only had one mishap when Cole lost one of his brand new shoes in a deep pile of hay at the end of a slide. If it weren't for a sweet lady helping me, that shoe might be lost to us forever, OR a couple of random kids might have been yelled at (these were kids that kept barreling down the slide while I was at the bottom looking for the shoe. They would ask what I was looking for and then climb back up to the top and shoot right back down. Lovely!).

Friday I had a day off from babysitting, so Spencer decided to take the day off as well so that we could have a family day. We decided to drive a little south to the Hocking Hills area and go hiking. It is a beautiful area, and even more beautiful in the fall. The boys had a great time, and we had a great time watching them enjoy themselves. It was a special treat to get to have a family day in the work week. The boys loved the time with dad. We went on a couple of different hikes. Cole insisted on having a walking stick, even though it was bigger than he was. One of the hikes ends in a big pond area and the boys spent quite a bit of time throwing rocks in. Dad was the main attraction with his ability to skip the rocks. I came in a close second when I was willing to dig up bigger rocks so that they could heave them in. It was a great day.

as cute as this family outing is (which those pics are totally darling), ya gotta be honest on the reason for the day off. Spence needed a little family-time therapy after the Y's heart-wrenching loss to TCU the night before... :) I don't blame him!

Hocking Hills looks like a lot of fun...and beautiful. Maybe I can drag Scott out there some time for a little "hiking" ohio-style!
