Falling For Fall

I’m not sure when it started, but I am head over heels in love with Fall!!

The gorgeous colors, the cool breezes, the disappearance of mosquitos – Need I say more?

Seems like the transitions in seasons get more and more exciting when you have little ones. Maybe because you are forced to really appreciate and celebrate in a way that you would otherwise just experience, well, more grown up if you will. There is a sweet remembrance when you are seeing through the eyes of a toddler experiencing these things for the first time. Especially the beauty of the shift into Fall.

We had the best day ever watching Willow truly take in all that fall has to offer as we visited Hillridge Farms over the weekend. She rode a horse, had her first hayride, and spent some serious time picking out the perfect pumpkin! We were there for 5 hours and STILL she pleaded for more. “We come back-anoder day!” she said over and over (and over) again as we made our way back to the car. It was as if she was consoling her sweet, overtired little self that the fun, although over for now, would be waiting for her to come back soon. And to tell the truth, I felt the same.

Baby Torah was sweet as pie. Smiling with her eyes locked on her big sister at all times. I can’t wait to come back when they both can fully enjoy this place.

It was a perfect day. You have won our hearts Fall! Feel free to stick around for a while. Because Winter, is just, ew.
