Fall is here, and it's absolutely GORGEOUS outside! The caps were obnoxious in that last sentence, but it seemed necessary because seriously, it's amazing out there. Texas doesn't really do Fall. They do a cooler summer, but being in Virginia is the first time we have really felt a Fall. We were missing out. The leaves are all turning red and orange, and there is a nice cool breeze blowing at all times. If I were a coffee drinker, I'd head to Starbucks right now and grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte because that just seems to be the thing to do.
Lately, Parker and I have been making any excuse to be outside. We head out to the backyard almost every afternoon to throw the football or frisbee. I prefer the football, but we had to temporarily switch when I jammed my finger... apparently you shouldn't try to catch a football with your finger tips. Who knew? Taking the pups on walks is awesome. I didn't know you could walk the dog and not sweat your rear end off. Fascinating.
I have been itching to go hiking, and Parker so kindly obliged this past weekend. It was my favorite moment of the weekend, and I asked if we could make it a weekly thing. There is just something about being surrounded by beautiful nature in beautiful weather with the ones you love. We left Darla at home for this one because her little legs can't do more than about 15 minutes, but Jenny had an absolute blast. This is the kind of stuff we did with her before Darla came into the picture, so I am really glad we picked it back up again. We snapped a few pictures and enjoyed hiking through the middle of nowhere. Pure bliss.
So that's it. Short and sweet today. Just do me a favor and go outside. It's too pretty not to.
