Papa Simpson's Fall Festival and other fall things

I LOVE all things fall, but especially time outdoors with my friends and little ones. The tease of perfect weather came to a blistering halt on Friday and we peaked in the mid 90's on Saturday. I quickly stashed my boots in lieu of flip flops and shorts. But, the lighting is still screaming fall so we threw on some fall garb and took pics outside. Saturday we teamed up with the Hall's, Underwood's and Gisclair's for some Fall Fun at Papa Simpson's Farm including a petting zoo, hay maze, pumpkin patch, cow train, pony ride, corn box and more. Basically a plethora of photo fun. I especially love the pics of Sarah and Ella Grace at sunset....perfection!

Harper and the piglets...makes me think of Fern and Wilbur

we walked

I think I've spent more time outside this past week than I did all summer. It was the first week of relief. I wore jeans and didn't sweat. My shoes slipped on those first few acorns peppering my driveway. Leaves danced across the asphalt like a preview of the months to come.
And my girls got to rock their new boots.

Baylor riding Harper's "triceratops" in the driveway

Harper made a new friend

...and discovered something cool

...and cruised

And today, on this chilly morning, we walked in our new boots!
My little one, she knows she's cute!

Harper is really starting to look after her sissy.

We walked and we knocked...

...and we found a friend!
