We Love FaLL!

Fall has always been my favorite season. I love when the weather gets cooler, pulling on warm sweaters to take the chill off, and watching  the leaves turn from green to bursts of beautiful color. Traditionally every year at this time we take a road trip to World's End State Park. This year, was no different, (except for the fact that the boys didn't wan to go. Oh well, I DO still remember what it was like to be a teen.) But anyway, we had a girls day. My mom and I took the three girls for a fun filled day outdoors.

The drive up was beautiful. The sun was shining brightly through the trees and the colors were amazing. I never get tired of the view even though we have been taking this same trip all my life. When we arrived, suddenly out of no where, came the wind. Brrr, it was chilly! But, a little cold has never stopped us, after all, my mom reminded me that when we were very young, there was a time that it was actually snowing while we had our fall picnic. I was very thankful that it was NOT snowing!

We unloaded the car rather quickly, trying to stay warm. Sat down to eat, only to have our plates blow off the table and food flying everywhere. Of course the girls got quite a chuckle out of that. After eating faster than I have ever eaten in my life, we gathered up all of the food and chased down a few paper plates blowing in the wind and headed out for a walk.

Finding a good walking stick is the key to a good walk.
We stopped a few times to collect "the best leaves ever!"
And we took a few pictures.
At first, Stella was not so sure about this playing in leaves business.
But, eventually she came around and had lots of giggles.
We ended our day with some fun at the playground. (and a long nap in the car on the way home)
