It’s October, which means our weekly CSA has ended and my dining room table will no longer have fresh flowers on it; but it also means, changing leaves, crisp fall air, cozy snuggles by the fireplace, pumpkin patches, apple orchards, oversized sweaters, boots, and scarves!
Preston and I braved the cool 40 degree weather today! After a 15 minute meltdown and a time-out because he didn’t want to wear a hat, he finally realized I wasn’t backing down. He’s still cute when he’s mad!
Once we got outside he realized that he NEEDED that hat. The wind was so strong!! We took little BoBo on a walk and enjoyed the cool breeze. It was so refreshing.
There is just something about the fall time that makes everything better! Even though, with fall, comes the fall turnarounds at Chad’s work. We don’t like when he’s gone, but we try to make the most of it! Preston is my little sidekick. He is with me so often, that when I finally get a chance to run errands by myself, it seems as if I’ve left my arm at home or something.
We try to make the most of hubby’s time at home though! We’ve already been to two pumpkin patches, an apple orchard, and to The Berry Patch. Preston had so much fun picking the raspberries!
At The Berry Patch:
We had fun at Bloomsbury Farm. Preston was so tired though! We stayed the night at my SIL’s house and he woke up SO EARLY (6:30 a.m.) because he wanted to play in his cousin’s toy room! I don’t blame him! 😛
It was hard to get a ‘good’ picture of him. But sometimes those are my favorite pictures! The ones that show real life situations. That way when we look back, we will remember the not-so-perfect times as well! Parenting is hard. Motherhood is hard. Being a toddler is hard.
Chad and I did sneak in a picture of just him and me. Posing with the Farmer Dolls or whatever they’re called. 😉
We are thankful that Preston enjoys going in the bike trailer. We were able to ride our bikes to the farmer’s market–just hand Punky an apple and he’s good to go! haha 🙂
We are going to another apple orchard this weekend. We want to pick more apples to make some homemade applesauce and possibly more apple cinnamon sangrias… 😛 They are delicious!!!!
The rest of the weekend we will probably spend a lot of time outside with Preston, teaching him how to use is new (to him) scooter!
So far, Fall has been great to us! Hopefully it’s been great to you too!
….until next time! xoxo
