More Fall Fun in Photos

our first leaf pile! (we've had many more and aren't even close to the end of our leaves yet. I've dreamed of this day because I have some GREAT memories of leaf jumping as a kid!)

xc meet with 70 teams! Cade improved his time by 3 minutes!)

Livi took my picture. I was there!

Livi has been loving her bike lately

we explored Hyde School up the road on a drizzly day. It was very pretty.

Daddy found a frog

a crazy pile of mushrooms

we built a fairy house in the forest in Hyde School

I got one of my old dolls out to see if Olivia could play by herself with her two big dolls for a while. While that didn't really work, she did have fun washing her hair :)

We celebrated Jeff's bday at A Taste of Maine, a yummy and very quirky restaurant.

silly boys

pumpkin pie and icecream for dessert (and the Broncos won!)

the closest I could get to a family picture for Jeff's bday.

We walked all the way to Frosty's to pick up donuts for Daddy on his birthday morning!

watching the train go by

a craft with leaves and sticks!

A cute ponytail = photo op ;)

a new friend invited us to the beach. In October! It was gorgeous and cold. The kiddos has a blast.

why will she play with the coffee shop toys for minutes upon minutes upon minutes? She says it's because of the Little People and dollhouse, but I have a feeling if we had those exact same toys at home she would lose interest in seconds.

Um, the most special treat EV.ER.

overalls  and pigtails! (and silly faces/poses)

Olivia took another photo of Mama. Not bad :)

"this grass is higher than me!"

afternoon snack on the porch

we invited friends over to play in the leaves and they all had a BLAST. It was awesome.

just a little cleaning up

Cade's latest meet where he took off another two minutes! He's 5 minutes under his first time now!!

Go Cade!

coming into the home stretch!

Autumnfest at Waterfront Park this morning. As we were strolling downtown Olivia said "I love our town." I melted. And probably shed a tear.

we got to ride on an old fashioned firetruck. Notice the mittens and hat. It was legit cold.

and this happened today. A 4 year old, sweetest of sweet, boxer mix named Georgia/renamed Georgie. I think we all love each other already :)

I can't get over how beautiful Maine and your little town is! As difficult as it is to have a little one who doesn't like to play alone (been there!) I am so happy for you that you are getting to stay home and enjoy her. Being a working mom can be hard, being a stay at home mom can be hard. Watching your blog makes me MISS staying home with my girls.
