F is for Fall, Foliage, and Fun

Thursday November 5, 2009

We’ve been enjoying a lovely fall.  I wanted to share some fall fotos that capture the beauty and the fun we’ve been up to:

I pass this big tree as I drive up our street.  It is huge, stately and turns a gorgeous shade of colors.  It makes me smile when I see it.


Sam had been clamoring for a “Burley ride” for a while.  He & Adam finally got their wish one Sunday.


Daddy was all smiles before the ride…


But there was some huffing and puffing after the fact – even with his Crossfit training 🙂

The majority of the leaves haven’t dropped in our backyard yet, but we found a way to maximize the fun with the leaves we had.


Having fun on the playground at Wendy’s school.  Who says they’re for big kids?  Not the A-man.


It was “Wacky Wednesday” and the dress-up theme was sports jerseys.   We don’t own a stitch of licensed pro apparel in our house, but daddy dug out some vintage jerseys from yesteryear.  This is his high basketball jersey.  Wendy was thrilled to be wearing a dress 🙂


Even I got into the action and did a little reaf laking.   Adam knew just what to do when saw the pile.


Sam was a good helper, working hard to help me rake.  He also had fun jumping in and enjoying his hard work.


Adam contributed a little to the effort, but his main contribution was being cute.
