Hand - Me - Downs

When the girls went out to catch the bus this morning, it was cool and raining.  It was the perfect opportunity to break out the raincoats.  They were pretty excited... as their raincoats are not just any old raincoats... they are hand-me-downs!

Many  years ago, I placed an order for 3 little raincoats from L@nds End. Daniel was starting kindergarten, Holly was getting ready for second grade, and Joey all set for third grade.  We were living in Jakarta at the time and they were the perfect little coats for the very wet tropical weather.  Daniel had the pleasure of wearing all 3 of the jackets as he grew...  Abby and Lilli will do the same.
They have all grown out of Daniel's little red one... but Holly's blue one and Joey's orange one are just perfect!




The funny thing is that even though it was many years ago... I would swear that it was yesterday.  I blinked and my littles above grew into my bigs.  I guess when Abby and Lilli outgrow the cute little coats, I will tuck them away for my grandchildren to wear one day.... better not blink or that will be tomorrow!

"Farms are So Cool"

First we visited a local apple orchard....

Yummy apple straight from the tree!


Abby opted for a fresh apple cider slushy.... even yummier!  

Next stop... a local pumpkin farm... where we did everything EXCEPT pick a pumpkin.  ; )



Finding golden treasure!  






Abby's expression says it all... she is growing up... she only "agreed" to ride to "protect" Lilli.   

YAY!  What a fun day!  

HUGE Black Culvert = HUGE Fun









Bounce






A Little Drive to Lynchburg





Funny story... when we were walking around the J@ck D@niels Museum, Lilli looked around and quietly asked, "Why is everyone dressed  like pirates"?... after Joe and I stopped laughing, we told her they were not pirates - they were bikers!  hahaha!

A Sunny Day in September

video


Thanks to Bryan and Missy, Kelly and the "Sharp Sisters" for putting together a fun time!  As usual - the family was crazy and the food great!

Even Mother Nature Pitched In....



The cool weather has arrived and with it, fall decorations.  Mostly we go for traditional - orange and black - pumpkins, more pumpkins,  and {not so scary} witches.  We usually stay away from spiders....



Until This year, when Mother Nature helped us decorate....
