Fall-tastic Weekend



This weekend was a perfect mix of working hard and playing hard.  We tackled more house projects.  The unglamorous yet important kind as we can finally park a car in the garage--hooray!  But even in the hum-drum of tending to the house, with fall in full swing all around us it was like there was an extra character in our midst, you know like the distant relative you don't see very often but who always brings exotic treats when he comes to visit and so the excitement level is always elevated that much more?  Yeah, fall was our fun Uncle this weekend bringing a little excitement and elevating ordinary tasks with it's beautiful backdrop of leaves, sunshine and barely crisp air.  


B decided to go running on Friday and somehow it became a family run.  Lamp and Zuzu shared the double stroller, which technically isn't a jogging stroller, but somehow we managed, while PSP biked along.  B pushed the stroller most of the way, but I would take over to give him a break and sometimes we'd push together with one hand.  That's marriage in a snapshot folks.  


This also became the weekend where I overgrammed pictures of leafs.  (or is it leaves?)  I'm kind of obsessed.  Especially with these tiny yet perfect maple leaves.  What is it about seeing nature so tiny and still so perfect?  I think it a reminder of the whole Horton Hears a Who thing, you know, A person's a person no matter how small.  It's a little reminder that we all matter and we all contribute to the beauty of the whole.


Saturday we hiked, which was good for my soul and good for my Cincinnati love.  I decided that Cincinnati and I, we're an arranged marriage.  We didn't pick each other, but we're going to fall in love hard and have a beautiful life together.  I know there will be plenty of ups and downs ahead but I'm starting to come around.  Pretty right?         

And how cute is this little baby hiker?  She just kept resting her head on my back or leaning to the side to see what silly shenanigans her sisters were up to.


Family selfie.
And that's a wrap.
Hope you had a great weekend as well.
