Sunday Outing

































We went on a little outing yesterday afternoon to the mountains. The foliage was spectacular and it literally rained beautiful golden, crimson, and orange-hued leaves. The river was a foaming, churning living thing. A perfect target for little boys with handfuls of stones. A glorious sunset followed us home and I could not help but click away on my camera as we drove through charming towns with glorious examples of southern vernacular. Graceful columned grand dames and tiny cottages, lights aglow as the day receded into night.

What a wonderful day with your handsome family. The eye lashes on the middle guy just might be the longest that I have seen in decades.

Love the picture of the alpine settlers. Ha. Surely you can use that pic as leverage one day... or produce it the day before the wedding? Just saying.

We went up to the mountains on Saturday and had a wonderful time, too... We splashed about in a little creek, and hiked, and just took deep breaths and enjoyed the peace and quiet... So glad you guys had a great Sunday...

And your boys are so very sweet - such little men, each in his own way...! I love getting glimpses of them through your blog... Don't you find yourself wondering what kind of grown-ups they'll make some day..? I know I do that sometimes, as I look at Noah when he's busy playing and unaware that I am tearing up ever-so-slightly, so proud of what a big boy he's becoming... Anyway. I tear up easily, though. It can be a problem sometimes....

love,

It looks like a lovely, lovely day. How cute is the little one's argyle and check outfit?! I know boys don't wear "outfits" but I can't help it, it's so stylin'!

Oh, and the pic with their heads sticking out of the plywood cut-outs was hilarious!
