Yesterday was one of those delightful November-y days...crisp, chilly air, but radiant sunshine, and our fall foliage is at its peak. Just right for an autumn walk through the woods. So after a lunch of Cream Cheese Chicken Soup, sweet potato biscuits made by 7-year-old Owen (love that!), and hot apple crisp for dessert, we pulled on sweaters and sweatshirts and off we went.
Alaine (3) won the fall fashion award. :)
The adults mostly walked (on the path).
The children also walked the path,
and on fallen logs.
And they ran,
and trudged through (dry) ditches.
We all stopped to take a peek at the newly restored tractor that had been Ron's dad's.
Ben (5), who had been riding in the wagon, decided to give his brothers a ride.
He did not want help. The determined boy was almost horizontal as he tugged!
One more stop...to pick up some hand-me-down guttering.
Papa put all the kids to work carrying the longest piece (it was l-o-n-g, but not heavy),
and we joked that they looked like the Whos carrying their Christmas tree.
Back at home, it was time for some outdoor play...
or back inside for a cup of tea.
