I'm loving these warm Fall days because we've been able to get the kids out of the house to enjoy all the beauty this season has to offer. The colors never cease to amaze me! Last Sunday Jeff and I took the boys down to Reedy Creek, a part of the expansive James River Park system. There are tons of trails for walking, jogging, biking, etc., not to mention the hard to beat views of the James River, the city skyline and so much more. If you live in RVA and haven't taken the time to explore the parks the city has to offer then I have to say you are really missing out! There is so much hidden beauty (and history!) in our little city! I was only able to get just a few shots on that little adventure as I spent most of my time with my family and also ensuring the boys stayed out of trouble! Then yesterday we went over to the Carillon at Byrd Park to let the kids run around and work some of their two-and-four-year-old energy out. We went with Cooper's best bud Will and his little sister Evie who are the same ages as Cooper and Cade (perfection, I know!) These four babes are like peas in a pod, they love each other to death and in turn we (Jeff, Brad and Kerri, Will and Evie's parents) try to get them together as often as possible. And since the four adults really like each other too it's a win-win all the way around! I took my camera with us and got some really cute shots of them just being themselves and having fun. Kerri is a very talented sewer and turned Will and Evie's hoodies into dinosaur coats! Cooper has a shark hoodie that his Grammy got him (although he'll tell you it's a dinosaur, like Will's) so they do a lot of RRROOOAAARRRIIINNNGGG when their wearing them - they actually roar whether they're wearing them or not! Anyhow, I sure do love seeing how the smallest things can make them so happy, it helps me on days when I'm having trouble weeding through all the 'adult' stuff.
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!
I'd love to hear about your Fall adventures and see any pics you captured of your little ones, fur babies or the awesome scenery in your town! :) Thanks for stopping by...
