I Have to Accept It...

I know. I know.

It's FALL.

I have been in denial.

I'm just not ready to let summer go yet.

Mostly because I had great expectations for this past summer (aka - wanted to spend a week at the beach) and they just didn't materialize.

But I have to let it go. (It's October for heaven's sake. I had to turn my heater on this morning...so depressing.)

Time to switch gears and stop moping.

Time to focus on all the fun FALL festivities.

Maybe take a day trip to the apple orchard like last year...






Awwww...isn't she a cutie? We had such a great time. Abby still talks about it. And I'm sure that Noah will enjoy it even more this year. (I'm sure I'll be chasing him all over the orchard.)

Okay...I'm feeling better. Maybe even a little excited...especially if I can try one of those apple cider doughnuts. They smelled SOOOO good when we were there last year, but the line was so long. Here's hoping! :)

Happy Fall!

I was the same way last year with the winter! I couldn't admit it was over and was NOT happy about Spring. So I understand. However, I am so HAPPY that it is FALL!! Cute blog, I like reading it! :)

I'll be the same way when winter comes, but Fall? Oh, Fall is my FAVORITE.

How could you not love it JUST for those fabulous pics alone????

Beautiful kids and such a fun time. I've never been to the orchard. I think we need to find one this year. I gladly leave summer behind to get into fall. I love fall.

And it's always nice to "meet" another Kelli.

Honey if it makes you feel better we are already through Autumn and full into winter here.

The apple orchard looks gorgeous. I bet the kids will both adore that this year.

Have one of those doughnuts for me!!!

Tracey said...

Dude, I am ECSTATIC that it's fall! Bring on the jeans and sweatshirts!!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Great pictures I hope you take them for more memories! I just love fall!

Mamasphere said...

I love fall. Maybe because we don't really have it here in San Diego. It's hot all the way through October. We have to go to pumpkin hunting in shorts and tank tops. *sigh* But I'm sorry you didn't get to take your trip to the beach! Next year you'll just have to go twice!

Terri said...

We want to go again this year also.

I love summer and hate to see it go. And this year I won't have time to enjoy fall either. By the time my life settles down it'll be winter and I'll be in a foreign place. Stuck in my house. Wo is me:(

Rachel said...

I agree - I'm not ready for fall yet, summer is just too fun and the days are long and the sun shines and well.........fall is here......the days are cooler, the daylight hours are shorter already and sigh.....here's to fun traditions though we are going to the pumpkin patch for the first time this year :)

amanda said...

there truly is nothing better than a day picking apples and eating cider donuts!!

delish :)

Down in the Sun said...

Just come visit me! You will have summer for another month or two!

T said...

ack - don't say the word heater - I only just barely turned of the A/C this week! I happen to love Fall - but yeah, a missed week at the beach could make anyone hate the pumpkin picking -

adorable kids - great blog - I just came by to say thanks for stopping by my blog last week and now I'll stay to look around for a little while... any medicine cabinets to open?

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Did somebody mention APPLE CIDER DONUTS?

I'm in love!

What a fabulous fall day!

Heidi said...

Girl, don't be scared. Jump right in with your 'oh so cute' scarves and some hot chocolate... It's fun. We can jump in the leaves, and take hay rides. I *heart* Fall, is it showing?

Chelle said...

I love fall...and I am so jealous you got to turn your heat on!

Our a/c is still on...*sigh*...
