Just like summer, fall, has it's own list of fun things to do, adventures to go on, things to see.
Pumpkin finding, leaf jumping, lots of snuggling, nature walking, beauty spotting, craft doing. Nothing profound, nothing life changing but smile bringing, joy filling, memory making fun.
We went to Center Grove Orchard the other day, and despite being an orchard we only picked one apple (although I'm pretty sure it would have been frowned upon, I just wanted my kids to try an apple right from the tree so I grabbed one on our way in). It is FALL FUN. If you want to know what fall fun is, go there. There was so much to do I felt like we barely even scratched the surface and we were there for over 3 hours.
We had the privilege of spending the day with our dear friends the Larson's. You may not remember but Chuck Larson left last October and spent the next 11 months serving our country overseas as a Captain in the Marines. He left his wife Laurel, daughters Millie and Stella and son Bo (born in November) to serve. He literally came home for Bo's birth and left while Laurel was still in the hospital, Sacrifice. I wrote more about them in this post, SACRIFICE. Chuck arrived home about 2 weeks ago. He will spend the next several months in Minnesota during the week to finish up his work but will be home on the weekend. We are glad that he is back in the states and so thankful for his service. So this particular outing was even more exciting having him home.
There were the three little pigs house at the orchard. Laurel and I laughed because the kids could have spent all day hiding in the houses, being scared by the wolf (one of their parents) and running to another. We had to pry them away from the little houses

Sweet baby Bo. He is such a little stud.
I love this picture.
By this point Titan was ready for nap, I'm not sure he enjoyed the slide.
