Saying Good Bye To Summer

Today, we bought long pants, long sleeved shirts, new jeans at Target - and a sweatshirt is now required for outside playtime after dinner.

The night temperatures have been hovering in the 40's here for weeks. Each morning the grass is gleaming heavily with morning dew.

My sweet, sweet friend shared a peck of apples with me the other day from the local orchard that is only open in late summer early fall when the apples come into season.

After nap time today, the same sweet sweet friend and I are taking her boys and my Mayhem Maker to the local playground, one last time before school starts next week.

Driving over the side hill today to take Madaline to her 2 year well child visit, I noticed that the leaves have started to turn their pretty autumn hues.

I have been digging into my recipe collection and am looking forward to coming home to a house filled with savory scents wafting out of our crock pot.

Good Bye Summer.........and WELCOME FALL!

I can't wait for apple picking! And for 40 degree nights! We aren't quite there yet, but close.
