hello fall

I must admit. Fall is my favorite of all the seasons. I love the way the air smells so crisp as it's just about to get cold. I love how the colors begin to fade while the trees begin to burn on fire with their autumn leaves. I love wearing rain boots and scarves, beanies and hoodies...

But one of my new favorite things about the end of summer - and the beginning of all, is taking the boys to the state fair.

Jack was all over the rides this year (a big leap from the one ride he would dare try last year), the funnel cakes were to die for, the people were hilarious to watch, and the cows were fatter then ever.

Ryan missed out - as he had a show with Paul & the Madison Arm - so I am sorry to rub it in, but it was a pretty great night.

some where along the way

I don't know quite when it happened, but somewhere along the way - my life suddenly got way too busy. Events keep passing me by, and I think "hmm, I should blog about this" and then I let a week slip away. I am very close to getting on top of things - and will give a full report soon...
