Conservation Area Pics...

Cute pic huh? If it weren't for the huge contusion on my boys head, I might have ordered it to be developed (and check out the elfen child behind her brother...what a stinker) . We went to the Conservation Area the other day and it was truly one of the most beautiful days we've experienced, in these parts, all year. The Hubs and I sipped our coffees whilst the children played about in the endless piles of leaves, and investigated the nearby stream. It didn't take long before Gabe and his 'shuffle gait' found a huge tree root and took a fall, only to bonk his forehead upon the next tree root, a perfect 2 feet above the other. It put a damper on the walking portion of the excursion, which, you know, is most of the time at a conservation area. But daddy was a willing horse, and put Gabe on his shoulders.
Here I am trying to convince the unwilling hooligans to look into the lens...


And this one just kills me... It makes my heart a little dizzy. I can't handle that sly grin playing on her lips...she was about to laugh at how the leaves felt on her cheek while she was riding the Daddy horse. Those bright leaves just make those dark eyes pop out.....ahhh sweetheart. (Nevermind the chocolate donut on her chin :) )

Beautiful pictures! We did a little nature walk today too, and I'll be posting the pictures soon. The leaves here are not as far along as yours are, though.

I was so happy to be able to share in your photos with you (especially being able to see 2 pictures of YOU!) I've never had the opportunity to see your face before and it was wonderful to see a photo of you and your beautiful children :)

What's with boys? Isaiah is already accident prone and not yet one... he's already managed to climb out of the crib (doesn't help that he's the length of a two year old...). :) Love the pics, fall is so beautiful and the fam is looking great - you too by the way (and I look much like you... hence the lack of profile pics on my site!). Happy rest of autumn...
