Oh, How I Love the Fall!

This Fall has, once again, reinforced everything I LOVE about Fall:
Beautiful colors
Fabulously mild weather in the 60s and 70s
Fresh apples for apple crisp
Fall Festivals, pumpkin patches, hayrides
Leaves falling
Leaves in piles to jump in and run through (Kayli loves it when I run with her in the stroller through long stretches of leaves on the sidewalk!)
Hanging out at the park, and not getting any mosquito or chigger bites (This one is a HUGE plus in my book)

Kayli and I had a recent opportunity to go to a nearby park and hang out for the afternoon. We sat on a cement slab on the edge of the lake and shared our goldfish crackers with the geese that swam right up to Kayli. The nice thing was that these geese were pretty nice (unlike the aggressive bunch that chased Kayli, Jake, and Nick at the park by Marion’s house last year!) The geese at this lake gathered around Kayli as she sweetly and sympathetically talked to them about “turn taking” and doled out the goldfish accordingly. This afternoon was simply a slice of heaven, as we had nowhere to go, no time constraints, not a care in the world, Aaaaahh…
