Life Recently: The Early Fall 2016 Edition

2016-09-24-09-24-53

Fall has been fast and furious for us so far, with lots of fun trips, a visit from Aussie Nan and Poppa and our first pumpkin carving experience with Lotte.

Here’s a look at some of what’s been going on … prepare for picture overload!

^^ Someone was unimpressed with how rugged up her parents made her get for her first official fall walk.

^^ So incredibly grateful to live a stones throw from this gorgeous view.

^^ What’s not to smile about when you’re this fawned over 😉

^^ This face … and the Nan and Poppa who love her.

^^ Outtakes from a family photo shoot on our front porch.

^^ Someone remained unimpressed pretty much the entire time. Oh well, what can ya do?!

^^ This photo with Penny creeping in the background … I just can’t.

unspecified-9
^^ Date night made possible by Nan and Poppa … thank you!

^^ An up-close look at how awkward our baby handoffs still are. This parenting thing … what can I say? It’s a work in progress 😉

^^ We got all dolled up for a Facetime date with American Papa for his 60th birthday. Of course we didn’t look this angelic the whole time. Most of the time, we looked like this …

^^ Yeahhhhh. This is definitely more accurate.

^^ Also, when your child falls asleep on you after a screaming fit, it’s best to let her lie … wherever that may be.

^^ Monkeying around at the Carousel of Happiness — get it 😉

^^ Chris’s parents were generous enough to get us a fire pit for our backyard as our housewarming gift. Delicious smores under the fall night sky, here we come!

^^ I’ve started a tradition of grabbing a coffee and driving around town with Lotte for a bit in the afternoons. It’s pretty amazing some of the views you can catch around here …

^^ Facetiming with family. It’s the only cure for this ‘living far away’ thing.

^^ I may have overdone it with the cover-up job for this particular walk.

^^ Snow on the mountains … welcome to October!

unspecified-8
^^ We took a long walk with Lotte to the local coffee shop this weekend, and she was great! She only screamed for about the last five minutes of it, which I’ll count as a win.

^^ Carving pumpkins with our little pumpkin. (We simply couldn’t resist this photo opportunity!)
