It's Fall Y'all...

I know it's fall because...

-There's a delightfully crisp feeling to the air in the mornings
-This week I cooked a pork loin with cinnamon apples in the crock pot...smelled (& tasted) just like fall
-I broke out my boots & wore them twice this weekend
-We went shopping for our little man some new jeans, little man shirts, & fall-attire
-I baked pumpkin spice cookies with chocolate chips
-Owen is now the proud owner of a "real baby" pumpkin & a mini-light up pumpkin
-If the tv is one, we're watching football. We were certainly watching yesterday when UGA beat LSU....Go DAWGS!
-I made a big pot of chili this afternoon...yummy!
-We have 2 trips to the pumpkin patch planned in the next 3 weeks

We love fall!

September fun.

It's been a very busy September for us, but it's been full of lots of fun...

Labor Day lake swimming...
A trip to see the train at Centennial park...

 We got Owen a 2nd carseat for Daddy's car, meaning we had a giant box for him to play in!
 Playground fun...
 Bruce Munro Lights Exhibit at Cheekwood...

 The Nashville Zoo opened their newest exhibit a few weeks ago, Kangaroo Kickabout. You can walk on a path in the enclosure with kangaroos & if they approach the path, you can actually pet them. We had no luck finding a friendly kangaroo to pet on our 1st trip, but did have success on our 2nd trip with Grandma & PawPaw. Thanks Ima the Kangaroo!

1st carousel ride at the zoo...

 One cool dude cruising the zoo...

 Owen's favorite part of the zoo is the petting zoo where he makes sure he pets every goat (there are probably atleast 15).

Goodbye Summer.

I suppose we have to officially say goodbye to summer.
I was so blessed to spend the summer with our little man.
It was a special summer filled with...

trips to the zoo
blowing bubbles
spending time with grandparents & aunts
catching lightning bugs
roasting marshmallows
coloring our sidewalks with chalk
tending & harvesting our garden vegetables
learning about Play-Doh
lots of wagon rides
washing Daddy's truck
watching for lawnmowers, trash trucks, & mail deliveries
evening family walks
Monday library story times
enjoying fudgesicles
soaking in the pool
walks with friends

Now, it's back our school/work routine. 
We'll miss our summer fun, but I'm so looking forward to this fall.
