Fun in the Fall!


Finally . . . a fall weekend with decent weather, even though we had to wait through nearly all of October to get one! Yes, the weather has been very, very strange this year, but we love the nice, warm days whenever we get one or two!

This past weekend, we actually had two (count em, two) marvelous and warm sunny days! Instead of going after the leaves that again accumulated in the yard, since I already filled 15 bags, Maddy and I headed to our neighborhood school playground. There are a ton of kids in our neighborhood, but maybe the others were all home raking leaves, as we were the only ones there!

Monkey Maddy loves to climb and swing and is really showing some upper body and arm strength. She’s one little dynamo! What a beautiful blue sky and beautiful girl too!

My girls went to the park with a friend too. It was just too nice to stay home.

Take care,

Very cute pictures! I love the top one.
Oh yes, having some beautiful days to enjoy has been so wonderful. Our Oct. was a bit of a bummer too and we're thankful for nice days.

It looks like you took advantage of the gorgeous weekend. Maddy certainly looks thrilled that you decided to forgo the leaves and hit the playgroud instead:)

Beautiful pics of your beautiful girl!!

Great pictures. Enjoy the weather while it lasts. We spent this past weekend trying to soak up the last few rays of the warm sunshine.

Your monkey is adorable!! Great pics! She is growing so fast....How can we slow that down?!?!

Donna said...

Yes, this fall weather has been incredible, hasn't it? Looks like Maddy is enjoying it too!

Marla said...

I dont blame you, monkey bars are a lot more fun than raking leaves. Our weather has been a whole lot of odd too...

Maree said...

I REALLY don't want to talk about leaves....;-)

Glad you and Maddy got to enjoy the park! Our weather has been wacky too...not complaining too much though...today it was 80 degrees (makes you wonder where winter is!).

Maddy is so cute! We've also been reminded to treasure our good-weather weekend days this year. Speaking of which, we're planning to play at our school playground tomorrow too! :-) (and the rain is supposed to return on Sunday...)

Have a wonderful weekend!
