Family Day Out

We took one day on our Fall Break to drive outside of town to our favorite fall spot. On the way, we stopped and bought pumpkins and melons from this roadside vendor. I asked if I could take his picture. He straightened his coat and was happy to be photographed.
 He insisted on giving Sweet Cheeks a free apple. She gets free stuff everywhere.
 Our drive....
 Unfortunately, we planned to picnic and hike, but it was FREEZING when we got there. The rain picked up. It was so cold, we were expecting the rain to be snow at any moment. CC knew I wanted to take a few pictures, so he started calling out, "Quick! Smile! Click! Get back in the car!" It was funny.

Here we are at almost 17 years married! 17 Octobers ago I was one happy girl. I still am!

The kids huddled up for a quick picture. Of course, Miss Middler climbed a tree.

Their papa was making them laugh so hard about the "Hurry up and let Mama get her pictures, it's freezing!" stuff, I think I got some real smiles.
And so, we hopped back in the van and called it a day. But, the drive there, the praise music in the car, the time together made it a fun day nonetheless!

If I were you, Sara, I'd print and frame the last picture of the children so I could see it all the time!
