Fall Favorites

Fall is my favorite time of year--
football, changing leaves, and pumpkin scented everything!   

I saw this gorgeous picture of the trees near my western PA hometown, and it made my heart just a wee bit homesick.

We don't get quite the same array of fiery fall colors here in England, but we found our own autumn beauty last weekend at Anglesey Abbey

We also found definitive proof that my boys have a serious dose of primate blood.  If only climbing trees was an olympic sport. . .

And Marley. . .well, she is very talented at cuddling with Daddy, and using found objects creatively 
(that's my nice way of saying that she used a rock as a cell phone and a stick as a gun, while she walked through the park having an animated conversation with whoever was on the other end of the call).

We ventured out to the local pumpkin patch, just in time for a downpour.  On the weekends, we have perfected a knack of dilly-dallying around the house until the exact moment when the weather takes a turn for the worst.

Pumpkins were chosen, pictures were taken, and doughnuts were devoured.

Up next on the Huffman family calendar:  Keller's 11th Birthday, my 30k Fright Hike, and Halloween.

Happy Fall, y'all!!
