We LOVE Fridays

We love weekends around here. And Fridays are the gateway to the weekend. This morning we built a fort and played cars (of course) in it. 

And then, because it was Friday Funday, we ordered pizza and had a picnic in the living room. And watched Brave (again) while we ate. 
Every other Friday is extra special because cousin Gabe comes for the weekend. So tonight we made Pot Pie soup and yummy sandwiches and the boys enjoyed the gorgeous (and unusual) 70 degree weather. 
And then we painted pumpkins outside. What a perfect fall evening! 

And then, after the rest of the family headed back to Grandma and Papa's house, daddy popped some popcorn and we watched the World Series. 
Thank you God for Fridays and weekends. Thank you for time with family. Thank you for special memories. 
This time in our lives is just such a treasure. We are so thankful for these everyday moments!

Fall Sunsets

Tonight we walked home from Papa & Grandma's as the sun was setting. I wish I could have captured all the gorgeous colors in these photos. 
Liam and I talked about how beautiful the sky looked. And we thanked God for his beautiful sunsets. I can't help but feel in awe of God's majesty when I see a sunset. Especially a fall sunset through the leaves changing on gorgeous trees. God's creation never fails to amaze me! 
And my little dude insisted on pushing his stroller the whole way home. It was definitely dusk when we got back. But I enjoyed every second of our slow walk home. And I cherish moments of "seeing God" with my little dude.

A walk in the rain

Earlier this week we went for our usual walk around the neighborhood. It was sprinkling a little when we left, but that was it. But not long after, it really started to come down. Liam and I just started to laugh! We giggled, jumped/sat in puddles, and had a blast in the rain. 
Sometimes having a toddler means remembering to see the opportunity for joy in all things!

Leaf Hunt

This week we read one of Liam's favorite books, "We're Going on a Leaf Hunt" by Steve Metzger. And then we decided to go on our own leaf hunt around our yard and neighborhood. Liam had a blast. And when we got home, we used our leaves to make a wreath that we hung in the kitchen.
