Outing #1....back to our favorite orchard! In no particular order and with little commentary here goes...
In a rare appearance is Ethan...Andrew and Alyssa's baby brother.
The whole group with us this day.
He just had to have that perfect apple!
Yes, Julia is now as tall as Alyssa!!
As you can clearly see we are having superb weather given that the calendar reads October (-; You never know...we might get to sneak in one more trip before you know what comes our way.
Outing #2...a photo shoot with all the cousins at a local forest preserve which features a creek with an old mill. This is the very first year EVER that all 8 of them go to a different school so we thought we get some pictures of them wearing their school hoodies or spirit wear....which for this public blog I regrettably had to obscure for their privacy. It was a bit warm for the hoodies and long sleeved shirts....
Also in a rare appearance is Daniel, brother of Mairead and Deirdre!
Soooooo bored waiting for the adults to plan the shot.
Helping his baby brother down the river bank to get to the falls.
Wishing they could ditch their hoodies and go wading instead (-;
Only one more day off before we are back to the grindstone...can we only hope that this weather will last until Halloween?!?!?
