Sunshine And 75 Degrees

I love this time of year in NY, and it's just going to keep on getting better right through the holidays. Plenty of berry picking, apple season, fall colors, Charlie Brown's Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas, and as many baked fruit deserts as you can possibly imagine will flood the next 4 months with wonderful scents and smiles. It still seems a bit surreal that we're actually going to be apple picking, pumpkin carving, and Christmas movie watching as a family of 3 THIS FALL. Never a happier thought.

He may only sleep 9 hours a night and go against every grain of normality in my mind when he's wide awake at 5:30AM, but our son still manages to attain "big ball of cuteness" status every day. Today in NY brought sunshine and 75 degrees so we spent the day picnicking and frolicking on the lawns of the local vineyards. Ate some fabulous sandwiches, rolled around in the grass, met some new friends, and just soaked up the love all afternoon.

It's almost Fall in New York and we're loving it!

He is so cute. I just love his little round basketball belly.

Oh, we are so into fall and baked goodies. We have already made 2 batches of cobbler. Bring on the pounds!

You guys look like your having such a great time as a family of 3.

The picture of him sleeping is funny. :)

And, I'm going to share one of my quirks with you: I will watch any movie if it's filmed in NY for the glimpse of even ONE small scene filmed outside, in the city, during the fall.

I love that scene in When Harry Met Sally where Sally was wearing a jacket and they were walking down the sidewalk, talking.

The feeling I get seeing the trees change in the city-gah!

I hate living in Hawaii because of that-no autumn colors. :(
That's my favorite time of year and I miss it so much.
