Fall

If you had asked me 2 months ago what my favorite New England season was, I would have said summer.  Hot sunny days, the beach, tomatoes fresh from the garden, flip flops and hot pink toes.  Right now, however, my favorite New England season is fall. Today's weather was everything you read about in Yankee Magazine - brilliant blue skies, crisp, dry air, and the perfect temperature.  Warm enough to leave the jackets in the car, but cool enough so the girls could run, climb, and jump for hours without breaking a sweat.

 
After playing for a long time, we ate ice cream because that's just what we do.

The tomato vines are barren, but we now have these beauties.
 
I'm still wearing flip flops, but my toes are no longer pink.

How fun!! I wanna go jump in that huge hay stack! This IS a beautiful time to live in New England isn't it?

It's a perfect fall weekend! Your girls look so cute jumping off the hay bales. Enjoy the flip-flop weather while it's still here! (My toes aren't pink any longer either - but I can live with dark metallic purple up until Halloween.) ;)

Hi Madeline, funny I thought I commented last week on this day out with your girls but apparently I didn't! They are so cute and I love the photos of them jumping into the haystack!

I can't find an email address for you so sorry for the long comment on your blog!

For the photo collage, if you open Picasa, then select Import from the tab at the top, you can select to import files from folders on your computer. You might see the photos you saved from the Leo Reynolds site there. If not, when you're on the photo site, save the files to a specific folder on your computer so you can import them into Picasa later. My photos did just automatically show up in Picasa when I saved them to my desktop so I'm not sure why that isn't happening for you. If you can't do it for some reason, come over for coffee and we'll do it here! :)
