Oh, fall is a wonderful season!
We’ve had such beautiful weather to go along with the changing colors of the leaves and the fall festivals. Of course, by the time Halloween arrives and my girls are wearing their arm-baring Ariel costumes, it will be as cold as a witch’s…
um, it will be too cold to show off those cute costumes I bought for them!
Germanfest! Emmy and Lily are enjoying the foods of fall…a German pretzel and taffy apple.
Ed enjoyed a huge German beer, and I enjoyed driving two sticky girls
and one very happy husband home.
We are very lucky to live close to a river and the forest preserves that run along it. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and took walks in the woods two weekends in a row.
I just love the fall colors! Don’t you?
The forest preserves also allows wildlife which has difficulty adapting to suburban life to thrive, like barred owls. This barred owl was injured, and lives at the nature center close to us.
The educational programs they have are great!
Getting your face painted is fun during any season!
Emmy shows off her butterfly, and Lily “hearts” having her face painted.
Wishing you a wonderful fall,
