Flashback - Fall In The Midwest

Yall might want to remove me from your Reader until October is over. I have a ton of posts lined up in my head and am aiming to have them completed this week. A whole lotta Halloween coming your way, friends!

On to today's post.....

My friend, Jann, wrote me today saying it snowed in Colorado. Wondering if I missed it?


I miss the cooler weather. I cannot complain for a second about the temps here, but I'm a cold weather girl and crave Fall each year.

The lovely thing about California is that you can see all 4 seasons by driving inland 1-2 hours. We took a day trip to Julian, CA last week to visit the apple orchards, enjoy the color and to see the town. It was gorgeous. More on that soon.

And, we'll drive inland to ski here as well......actually, a slightly shorter distance than we drove in Colorado to ski. So, we have it all.....and that was a big factor when choosing where we wanted to move. But, I do miss the day-to-day color and will miss having snow at home. There is nothing like cozying up inside when it's cold outside.

Some pics from my favorite season of any place we've ever lived: Fall in Kansas City, 2009:

We stepped out of our front door to see this every day. That's Carter's bus coming down the street.

And, this one is for Caroline. I swear, I could give Awkward Family Photos a run for their money with pictures of our 3 punks.

OK I confess....I am in love with your family, no matter where you are! I still believe the picture of your KC street with the trees and the bus in the background is my fave ever! I would blow it up and frame it. And that sweet little hat on LC, love!

I love fall photos - it's my favorite season. So I can't wait to see what else you've got to share!

I'm not even going to tell you Ryan's comment concerning Jack's face in that pic. Well, I'll give you this much. It started with, "It looks like he's taking a ...."


Thanks for the laugh!

Dee Stephens said...

Great pictures! I love Fall too!! I'm with Jann on the bus picture. So very American.

Would give anything to have trees like the ones in the bus pic. Love that pic. Love the one of Lainey and Jack against the fence. Totally professional looking.

Off to watch the Rangers! Ryan finally got home from Austin's practice!

The ONLY hint of fall here in Florida (or that I remember in Houston) is the sound of high school band practice and football games. I love that part of fall. I love Jack in this post so much. Brian may be a "Jack-like" ghost for Halloween.

Kim said...

Great fall photos, I would miss it too if I didn't live in the Midwest!

Pam Bowers said...

After living in Tennessee for almost 5 years I can say that I truly miss the season changes. I was shell shocked when we moved back here and all I saw was a sea of brown.

You can brag to your friends that you have the ocean, mountains and desert all in the same county you live in. That's pretty unique!

LOVE that cream colored hat and purple plaid dress! AND the halloween dress!

I love those photos of LC and Jack by the fence...adorable!

Sara said...

This post has some of my favorite pics of the punks!!

And if you need to get rid of any of Jack's old fall clothes since y'all live in California just let me know. I'll be happy to help take those off your hands :)
