Fall afternoons...

I love playing outside with Rowan..although she dilly dally's a lot... and she gets awfully ticked off at you when you rush her. The last few nights we went out and enjoyed the nice cool air after school. Its so nice to go outside without sweating your tata's off.

Our typical routine is to go around the cul-de-sac... we stop off first at a neighbors house where Rowan says hi to her "fwiends"... we play there for a while and then continue around the circle where we stop at the end of the units at the playground. Rowan swings on the baby swing, then the big girl swing and finishes off climbing up into the tower and going down the slide.

After we convince her its time to leave the playground, which is always tough, we end up at a sewer drain. Yes you heard me right. She loves this sewer drain and will drop rocks into it for an hour if we let her. She particularly likes it after the rains, because the storm pipe is spewing water and then she gets to put the rocks in the pipe and watch them fly out with the rushing rapids and then into the drain. So much fun!

Afterwards we almost always end up back in front of our condo, playing with a ball or coloring with chalk. Its the same thing every night, but I always love it... because its our simple little life, and its amazing!

The fall is my all time favorite time of year. I always full it up with fun adventures like pumpkin picking, hay rides, corn mazes, apple picking and fairs.

I can't wait for it all to be here!
