Fall also means perfect weather, where it's crisp enough to wear your favorite plaid coat but not so cold you can't muster up the willpower to leave the house. The leaves are changing, the holidays are approaching, and culinary delights like pumpkin pie chai lattes appear on cafe menus. It really is my favorite time of year.
So, to that end, I thought I'd share some of our recent fall exploits. What can I say? Give me an opportunity to dress my kid in a pumpkin hat, and I'm grabbing that sucker by the horns - er, stem.
|Jack gives the new park on Commonwealth and Del Ray Ave. two thumbs up. Or he would if he wasn't clutching the remains of a pumpkin biscotti in his fat little fingers.|
|And here I am, overcompensating for Jack's lack of enthusiasm by smiling like a moron.|
|So basically Jack had no idea what to do with the hoop.|
|Checking out the pigs at Mt. Vernon.|
|Note the joy on Anneliese's face. Also note her foot position. I think you can guess what's going to happen next.|
On Sunday morning, we met up with Sarah at Eastern Market. How have I lived here for three years and never been?? There were so many great vendors and fun things for Jack to check out. The fact that you can buy a bag of fresh donuts for three dollars isn't too shabby, either.
|It only took me 138 years to discover Eastern Market. Auntie Sha Sha and Jack were clearly already in the know.|
|Jack stops to smell the flowers. I'm not sure the window lurker in the Eighties tracksuit is entirely pleased.|
Happy fall, everyone!
