Last weekend we went to Great Falls Park. It was pretty much an excuse for me to play around with my "big" camera, but we also had fun "hiking" along the rocks. The park is SO pretty this time of year and it's pretty common to see families taking Christmas card pictures.... so yes, some of these will be on our cards this year too!! LOL
Surprisingly, Emily really loved riding in the backpack carrier
the look on her face here cracks me up!
Brady and the falls
time for some silliness
more silliness....I think Emily is copying me doing the same thing to Alan to get them to smile!! LOL
this is the spot where Alan proposed to me on Dec 5, 1999 (the kids were NOT impressed by this fact)
our little poser...he asked Alan to take this picture
A few weekends ago we went on a Farm Tour of some local farms that are usually not open to the public. It's so cool to be able to check out some of these farms and the kids absolutely love it!! Our best choice was to stop at a winery for lunch! (the kids got to run around and have fun though too, so it wasn't totally selfish!! LOL) We could not have asked for better weather either, it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!
Our first stop was a "traditional" farm with animals
this picture just says "farm" to me....I love it!
We went with our friends David, Jack, Cassie and Paul
leaves are always fun to play with!
a great spot for some family photos
Cassie, Paul, David and Jack
Next stop was a farm to pick our pumpkins....David and Brady are looking for the perfect one!
Emily protecting our picks!
Brady and I picking out some gourds (it's serious business!!LOL)
Brady, Jack and Emily
It's SO hard to get both kids to smile at the same time (sigh)
LUNCH TIME....the winery (see, Jack's smile is proof the kids had fun!! LOL)
We were the only ones sitting outside so the kids literally had the run of the place
I LOVE this picture...it looks like some kind of magazine/catalog add
climbing the fence is all business apparently
pondering some deep thought (I LOVE the blurred partial barn in the background)
and our last stop was an apple orchard....it's a tough job to carry a bucket of apples
off to find some good apples!
We had so much fun with this, that I've already got the calendar marked for the Spring Farm Tour!!! This is definitely my favorite Fall activity!!!
