Fall Family Fun

Apart from the days growing shorter, I LOVE the fall. I love the leaves turning colors. I love pulling out hoodie sweatshirts and jeans after having to bear my flesh all summer in shorts and tank tops. I love fall food: apples, pumpkins, sweet potatoes and all things smothered in cinnamon. I love the crisp air, the leaf "storms" as the winds change. I love football, especially when the Steelers play. And, most of all I LOVE taking hikes with my family.

With all the pests that normally irritate and ruin a hike gone for the season, a hike in the crisp, autumn air does wonders for my pysche. Before our kids were even born, Lawrence and I would often take any free time we had to hike and/or run together. We'd talk then about one day making it a hallmark of our family time. And, now we're doing it. I'm grateful that my hubby's made a point of getting us all out of the house the last several weekends to enjoy a fall hike together.

Click on the slideshow below to enjoy some pictures I captured from this weekend's hike.
*There are also pictures from pumpkin carving Lawrence did with the kids, a day in the life of homeschool at the Almengor's and our caregroup preparing for an upcoming outreach event at our church called, "Trunk or Treat". Enjoy.
