It is Fall, It is Fall

The leaves are falling everywhere.
It is fall!

Arizona went and stole my heart again this week. 70 degree weather. Heavens do I love this.

Allan’s parents came over Saturday. We decided to go the arboretum. Allan’s parents are the ones who bought us our yearly pass and they’ve never been!

The arboretum is a rocking good time.

And we most certainly found our fall there.

Ember got to spend some time with cuddling with grandpa.

And lots of time with daddy. Who she missed SO MUCH while he was away for three weeks! She was filled up with endless smiles for him when he got back last week.

Grandpa taught Brooklyn a bit about baseball.

Allan took this one of Sierra hanging out in the stroller. Sierra loves hanging out in the stroller. If it was up to her she’d be treated like Ember… carried in a carrier or stroller, held all day… she would love it if she was babied more.

Ember had a snack.

While Allan was in South America he still talked to Ember every few days. I’d hold the phone near her ear and he’d start talking to her and she’d break out into huge grins and coo and giggle like crazy! It was literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen in my life!

We took some family pictures there. The ones in my header and here’s an outtake:

We’d brought the double stroller with us since Brooklyn was feeling sick that day. I’d wanted to stay at home with her (and Ember of course) while everyone else went but decided she’d be ok if she rested in the stroller the whole time.
But did she rest? Nope! She ended up walking and running and climbing quite a bit and it really wore her out!

Monday or Tuesday (geez, days are flying by!) I gave Ember some tummy time in the morning and she pushed her face into the carpet and cried.
Photobucket

So I rolled her over onto her back and sang her some songs instead.
Photobucket

And couldn’t resist the urge to take a couple shots of her adorable feet!
Photobucket

And that cute little belly button!
Photobucket

She was getting really sleepy so it was time for some milk before bed.
Photobucket

I brought her over by her siblings so I could read to them while they played.
Photobucket

We had a lot of fun spending the morning there on the floor.

Ember fell asleep while nursing.

And there are so many more pictures but it’s getting late fast so I’m going to stop.

Good night.

  • Looks like ya'll had a beautiful day. Love the leaves changing. I live in Louisiana and we just don't get that scenery:(
    Love to see how chuncky Ember is getting in the last shots sleeping on the boppy thing. She is a sweet little blessing.

  • I would love to have an arboretum near me…it is BEAUTIFUL there. Love the family pics, you guys are all such a great looking bunch of people πŸ™‚ It must be fabulous having Allan back, when my hubby is gone for even a few days it feels like my life is falling apart!!!

  • OH WOW! I've never seen such beautiful leaves before! I love, love, love the new header pictures!! So pretty! πŸ™‚ Looks like a fun filled day for the family! I don't know how in the world you made it with Allan out of town for that long! That definitely explains why you weren't your “chipper” self in those few posts! πŸ˜‰ I love all these pictures! πŸ™‚ Ember is growing and changing so fast! All the kids are actually! Your hair is super long and beautiful! I'm so jealous! I wish I could pull off long hair! Anyway, I haven't been commenting lately, but I've been reading the posts every day! πŸ™‚

  • Awwww, I wish we could have been with you guys! It looks like you guys had a great time with grandpa. I love the fall colors. I wish fall would last for months! It is my favorite season. Brooklyn sure looked nice for not feeling her best! I LOVE it when kids wear themselves out! πŸ˜€
