Ours was pretty low key with Saturday’s Michigan game vs. Michigan State being a low point. (If you saw SportsCenter at all this weekend, you probably heard about it. Basically we lost at the very end on a crazy play and it was super disappointing.) We did end up going on a hike in the Gorge yesterday though and that was great! I shared a few pictures on Instagram, but the fall colors were out and it was so beautiful. I’m looking forward to (hopefully) getting in quite a few more hikes before the weather really starts to cool off! Today though, I wanted to share a few photos from last weekend/this past week from my “real” camera; I have seriously been terrible about taking pictures with anything but my phone this past year since it’s a lot easier not to worry about lugging along with camera when I’m dealing with Henry. But I whenever I do take the extra time to take photos with the actual camera, I’m always happy I did. So in the spirit of fall, here are some recent snaps…
Before having a baby, I always really enjoyed doing seasonal things…but now that we have Henry, it is a million times better! Fall is my favorite time of year and he is at such a sweet age right now so I’m really loving being able to do all these fun things with him. Growing up in Michigan, the big thing to do in the fall is go to the cider mill and get cider and donuts. When we were in Michigan last month, we were able to do that (I posted some pictures on Instagram) and it’s special to think about carrying on these seasonal traditions my parents did with my sister and I with my own son. For Cam’s family, their tradition is going to the pumpkin patch and so it was really exciting to be able to take Henry for the first time last weekend. My husband’s birthday, his brother’s birthday, and my niece’s birthday are all within a few days of each other so that’s when we usually go. (I’ve posted about it before here, here, and here) I completely blanked on getting any pictures of Cam with his chocolate cake because I was too focused on taking 384952 pictures of Henry, but it was a really fun day!
Such a little stinker!
Brace yourself kid, you’ve got many years of pumpkin patch photo sessions ahead.
This is his new favorite expression lately and it cracks me up 🙂
He was super intrigued by the whole pumpkin stem situation
For reference for Portland folks, we went to Kruger’s out on Sauvie’s Island and they had great pumpkins…just don’t expect much else if you come during the week! (Although the grounds are pretty and Sauvie’s Island is just a generally beautiful spot) I also happened to swing by Bella Organic as well just to compare and that was really nice as well!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful October!
