#ThrowbackThursday: Playing in Leaves

I had a flashback to these beautiful moments playing in the leaves through the years with my kids yesterday.  Here’s a series of pictures of big sister from two years ago!

Even back then, big sister was a ham! Love it!

And going back one more year, here were the kids in 2012.

As a one year old, I don't think my son was "feeling it" as much!

This year at age four and almost six, they are BOTH loving the leaves and even throwing them at me! This season really IS the best, and our backyard has a seemingly endless of supply of leaves for the next month, so we will enjoy it for sure!

Savoring Fall Fun

We’ve been busy lately, squeezing in all the outdoor fun we can to enjoy this gorgeous Wisconsin season.  Last week temperatures were mild – upper 60’s to even some 70’s, so we had the perfect day to visit a petting farm and their pumpkin patch.

After visiting all of the animals (and petting some) and going on a tractor ride, we walked and ran through the cornfield to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkins.  My kids picked the small ones very quickly and were ready to move on to have our picnic lunch.  Days like this are fleeting in fall, so I’m glad we shared it with my sister’s family and our parents to create fun family traditions.

What are your favorite fall traditions?  I LOVE my husband’s pumpkin bars that he lovingly makes with a baking pumpkin instead of the canned stuff.  Hope everyone is enjoying October!
