Happy Fall!!!

I've got so many random pictures to post that I thought I would just throw them all in here at once. They are in no particular order so please excuse how scattered they are!

Luke's first day of school....as you can tell, not particularly thrilled about going despite asking me every morning for 2 months in a row "is today the day I start going to school???"


Our new house as of last Friday....things are really starting to pick up! Ours is the one on the right...






John and I took Luke for a "get away weekend" this past September to Deep Creek, MD. My brother in law's family owns a wonderful vacation home there and they were gracious enough to let us borrow it for the weekend. What an AWESOME time we had - just the three of us. It was so strange to be away from the babies and we certainly missed them, but we had a great time spoiling Luke all weekend and allowing him some "baby free" time to enjoy himself and do the things he wanted to do. One of our adventures for the weekend was a trip to Swallow Falls (pictured below). Truly one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited and we were there on an absolutely magnificent day with 75 degree temperatures and not a cloud in the sky. What an awesome day with our little buddy.








Luke and I enjoying a double dipper ice cream cone. We're sorry to report that 2 minutes after this picture was taken, Luke tipped the cone to the side to take a lick and both scoops fell to the ground in a giant pile of pine needles! Boy, were we bummed!


Some Fall pictures in our beautiful back yard...we're really going to miss the property here when we move!
