accepting fall

i had hoped that mid-october would bring us some random warm weather like last year, but alas it may not be so this year (though i still have 2 more weeks of wishful thinking).

so i have come to terms with the fact that fall weather is here to stay.  now that i'm no longer in denial, it has been quite enjoyable celebrating the cooler weather, the smell of the crisp air, and the changing colors of the leaves.

we had a great time wandering around the metroparks the other day, enjoying the beautiful things God has created for us.  it also provided a great opportunity for us as a family to reconnect and "catch-up" from the busy week.

might i add that those steps were a KILLER while you're also carrying a 20 pound baby, and a [insert sarcasm] pleasant reminder of how out of shape i am.

What a nice family bonding time. We love hiking around there too. I've actually seen people jogging up and down those steps (on purpose) repeatedly for a workout.

Wow. Those photos are gorgeous! I hear you on the wishful thinking for warm-ish weather. How did it get so cold so quick! It's only mid-October.
