This past weekend my mom and I took the girls to our local children's museum for Turkey Day! Madelyn and I went last year with our Girl Scout troop and it was a lot of fun so we decided to go again this year. There were turkey crafts, games, and stories, as well as live turkeys!
As you can see from the above photo, Stella was NOT getting near the turkeys to have her picture taken! But, Felicia and Madelyn didn't mind...too much.
Despite her lack of interest in turkeys, Stella found plenty of other things to do while we were there.
They even have a Native American exhibit that is new this year and went along perfectly with some lessons that Stella and I have been working on in preschool. It was a good day and a great place for the kids to explore. We are looking forward to heading back there soon!

Halloween has come and gone and our sugar high is over. We had a great time trick or treating, enjoyed the Halloween parade, and had our fill of spooky movies. The weather was perfect for both trick or treating and the parade. Although the boys have outgrown the fun of Halloween (except for the candy eating), the girls still really enjoy it!
I hope your Halloween was full of treats and good times!

Every fall for as long as I can remember, we've made a trip to World's End State Park to soak in the colors of autumn. It really is my favorite place to be when the air is crisp and the leaves are vibrant. It's a great place to be unplugged and fully relaxed. Just beautiful!
We had a cookout, complete with smores and hot chocolate!
After lunch, we headed out for a walk in the woods.
Our day was perfect, but we couldn't leave without recreating one of my favorite photos. When Madelyn was three years old, she wanted to walk along the path beside the water that has a pretty high drop without a railing. Aaron took her hand and walked with her...
...six years later, they took the walk again.

Fall is here...
The leaves are starting to become bright and beautiful...
Cooler weather...sweater weather is coming...
Apple pie and caramel apples are on the menu...
Pumpkin carving and trick or treating will be here before we know it...
It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this week, I had my mammogram and everything looked great! I've now been cleared to return in one year instead of six months...
...all of these things are why October is my favorite month!
