Taste of Fall

Last week and weekend, we had temperatures in the low 60's/high 50's (and maybe even a little cooler at times). Saturday arrived and appeared to look gray and dismal. However, no rain was actually in the forecast. So we headed to the zoo for the Zoo Grass (bluegrass) Festival.
We did have to bundle up a bit. The dreary looking skies kept the crowd away though.
We walked right onto my sweet girl's favorite thing-- the train. When the weather is nice that train line can get long (and try the patience of Mommy's and little girls alike).
Someone was pretty excited to sit on the bench by himself (with Daddy's arms nearby).
Cate got to pet a miniature cow.
We took in the bluegrass bands.
We watched a lumberjack show.
And to really make it seem fall-like, I enjoyed a caramel apple before we headed out. Yum!

This week we are back to temperatures in the high 70's, getting up to 80 some days. Good thing I left some summer clothes out for the kids. Our Halloween decorations are out and this weekend we're heading to a farm with some friends and then to a hayride/fall party with Eric's parents.

In recent milestones, Brennan has learned to get himself back to sitting (something he did last Tuesday, 9/27 for the first time) when he's been on his back or tummy. We're pretty sure crawling will be coming soon. He gets up on all fours, but then doesn't really move.

I'll leave you with a picture of my little Daniel Boone. Eric's parents brought Brennan this coonskin hat back from a recent trip to the Smokies. ~Melody :-)

LOL, love the hat! I can't believe how big B is! And Cate's pigtails are adorable!
