Feels like Fall

Today I felt like we spent a lot of time in the car. Reagan was invited to a birthday party in Lyndon, WA and so we all took her down. With the $ being so good everybody is going down and we had to deal with borderline-ups both ways. We spent the time while she was at the party having lunch at McDonald's and browsing at Barnes and Nobles. The boys were all really good and they all left with a new book. Taggart, for some reason, was set on having a Slushie, or as he calls it, a Flushie. Everytime we passed a gas station he would point out that we had just passed a flushie store and after a few was getting pretty annoyed that he still didn't have one. Towards the end of our day and yet another missed opportunity for a flushie I finally turned around and let him know, very clearly, that he wasn't getting one today. "Are you kidding me?" was his reply. I couldn't keep a straight face to that one. He's never said that before and it was so perfectly said in context. Anyways, I think he might have heard it from me, maybe.

Today was a beautiful fall day - crisp and sunny. I had been feeling a little robbed of summer the last few weeks but now have come to accept that we ahve moved onto a new season. The Apple Barn is open and we are heading out for yet another field trip with the preschool next week. I think this may be my fifth one, but it's always a good time and I am looking forward to some special time with Tag. I think I might try and decorate the front porch for Fall so will be on the look out for some things for that. Really like the look of this one.

Hi thought that was your fall decoration and felt even worse that I forgot to get my Fall stuff out this weekend. I love to celebrate the seasons.
I was hoping we would go to the Apple Barn again this year. It was fun last year - but then the weather was perfect. We'll see what happens.
