Fall Fever

My favorite time of the year in Nashville is definitely the fall. The colors of the leaves are incredible! And the weather is just perfect. Here is what we have been up to this fall so far.

The kids colored their pumpkins in anticipation of the day we will cut them.

Bekah is a purple dragon for Halloween and Linc is Spider-man! They like to swing in their swings and pretend they are flying through the air with wings or spider webs.

I raked the leaves in front of their slide so they could fall in them.

Seth and I built and all-naturale (except for the tarp of course) doghouse for Maggie. Even when she is getting soaking wet from the rain, she still won't go in there! Oh well.

Last Friday we took the kids on a hike at Percy Werner Park. Perfect day for it. Notice Lincoln putting his hands out, he does this most of the time while hiking because he is the leader and he doesn't want Bekah or I to pass him!!


Bekah's walking stick. Always has to have one hiking. Kind of reminds me of you Papa John!

Lincoln's Log!

Bekah took this picture!

The next day we went to the Buddy Walk for Nashville's Down Syndrome Association. They both got medals for finishing it!

Oktober Fest

Last weekend was Oktober Fest in Nashville's own Germantown Historic District. Didn't even know there was one until now! It was a lot of fun especially as it was all free! They had a lot of fun stuff for the kids, like this huge blow up slide.

It was quite the climb.

Once Linc made it to the top, he was too scared to slide down. Finally some girls coaxed him down.

He wanted to go again but this time with Daddy.

They even had pony rides there, and for free! Sure beats paying, like at the fair!

Then they got to color their own puzzles.

Lincoln is getting better at taking pictures.

This is Bekah's attempt at taking a picture.

A beautiful Catholic church there in Germantown.

They had a ton of these blow-up things for the kids.

I can't remember the last time Bekah took a nap! We must really have worn her out to have her fall asleep so quickly and in such an awkward position!

Oktober Fest was awesome and definitely a keeper for next year!
