(The colors of the neighborhood. I can not stop taking pictures.)
After a fun weekend in Boston, we started the new week with a trip to the store for the usual food stuff. And super-fun--there was a mini-hay maze.
Then, because it was SO gorgeous outside and because life had been feeling fast-paced--they collected a few small toys for some slow play at the park.
Soccer practice reading time. I LOVE this book!! It's from the library but I'm putting it on my personal wish list.
Our bedtime book. Have you read this? This is my first time and ohmygoodness--I totally thought that is was going to be a serious nature book at the beginning and then it got all crazy when the swan went to school and started spelling and playing a trumpet. Crazy book--but it keeps us laughing. Also, we were literally at the Boston Public Garden like Louis the Swan just last week--fun when books and life overlap.
The backdrop of these days is stunning.
The trees at Beza's school are brilliant. We might actually gasp every single day during pick-up when we walk past them.
We packed our bags and a good chunk of baby clothes for cousins for a quick trip to PA.
(It feels so good to move these bins upon bins on--but, oh my, there are so many memories tucked inside.)
A day with our familes:
(The real deal of corn "mazes.")
(The last of the concord grapes--the taste of fall.)
(The actual corn maze. We did two--the second one was no joke!)
(Cousins are the best.)
And celebrating an early birthday. (I'm going to hold on to 9 for as long as possible. ;)
We are definitely doing our best to savor all of these days. :)
