Last Friday the younger kids had a half day so we jumped in the car and headed down to the farm
It was a perfect Fall day and Eva and the dogs were so happy
Eva found the last pepper in the garden
The farm house is getting some work done
The light in the Fall is golden
The trees were so beautiful
I even talked Blake into letting me take a few shots, even in neon shorts, with hair starting to grow on his upper lip- but remember the scar? You can barely see it
Girly was a superhero- that day she used her softy blankie as her cape.
And that wraps up Day one at the Farm
Today we woke up to snow and Eva is thrilled- she’s been playing out in it all morning. Now it’s time for preschool and Blake’s school was canceled because the power is out so I am going to drop the girly off and come back and spend the morning hanging with the middle boy- if he ever wakes up.
Yesterday a friend and I were talking about how the trees this Fall have been pretty amazing. I’m not sure what causes good color presentation but whatever it is- it’s working this year.
Fall is best spent by a firepit with friends
Yesterday I rented the new 24-70 ii to take to the farm this weekend. I made Cole run outside and I grabbed a few snaps.
I have had the first 24-70mm for years and always found it a little soft.
This one is very sharp while still creating lots of bokeh. I think we are going to be good friends.
Until I have to give her back on Monday
The girly doesn’t do that great with change and holidays sometimes throw her off.
When I picked her up from preschool yesterday she had a huge meltdown and I was afraid that we wouldn’t be able to go to the Halloween parade at Cole’s school
As we walked over I told her that if she couldn’t keep it together we would leave and she would miss it.
We hit the playground first to get rid of some of her extra energy
She quickly pulled it together and behaved perfectly, even in the drizzling rain
I was afraid she would take off and I would lose her in the sea of kiddos
But she stood by my side taking in all the costumes, so excited to see all the different ideas.
I told her over and over that she was being a good girl
We caught site of Cole right before it started raining more
It was rainy Halloween in these parts but we had a ton of trick or treaters here at our rental. And the kids came home with way too much candy!
Our little town is looking very fallish- the trucks are out putting up the Christmas tree lights.
Eva’s Halloween parade was today, Cole’s is tomorrow
My little witchy friend
And her little Ariel friend- sooo cute!!
