My Favorite Season September 20, 2011

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.  ~Edwin Way Teale

I love fall.  It is, without a doubt, my favorite season.  The apple picking, the cool air, the turning leaves, the togetherness…  It seems that summer and winter are the seasons where we hole up in our own little lives – whether inside to stay warm during the winter or inside to stay cool during the summer.  Little plans are made or too many plans are made that keep us busy and away from family and friends.  But spring and fall are the seasons where everyone is ready to emerge from their cocoons and greet the world again.  We have been staying busy this fall so far with many get-togethers and a lot of family fun.

Block party with friends. Wish it were our block, but we just crash another friend's block party instead.

My awesome "pull-me-out-of-my-shell" friend, Shana!

Wouldn't be fall without an apple picking adventure with the Cramers!

With Mason as our default photographer, we get more grown-ups in photos now.

Fall = Soccer Season. Cooper is ready!

As if we didn't already have enough apples, we had to take advantage of the free ones at Jerry's orchard!

Cooper ate 4 apples in a 2-hour time period. Needless to say, he didn't eat much of his dinner.

Hayes watched the big kids do it and had to try it out for himself.

Sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, step-cousins, grandmas, grandpas... And oops - forgot to edit out the outhouse! So authentic, right?

This old tractor was quite the highlight for the kids!

Ding Ding Ding - Fall is officially here!

We’ve had some perfect fall weather and the perfect fall activities to go along with it.  I’ve baked an apple crisp and an apple pie.  I’ve eaten spice cake.  I’ve been using the crockpot again for hearty meals.  I’m itching to bake.  We’re watching a lot of football.  I’m pulling out sweaters.  I’m cozying up in my pajamas at night.  We’re keeping the windows open to get the fresh cool air inside that allows us to snuggle underneath our covers in bed and never want to leave.  These are just some of the joys of fall.  No wonder it’s my favorite season!
