we thought about going to the pumpkin patch….

but we ended up here instead.
Well first we went on a hike, and then we stopped here on the way home.  Ever since we moved here, four and a half years ago I’ve wanted to stop and take pictures here.  In every season it is beautiful.  Every season.

On this particular day the light was perfect, golden and happy…just looking at the pictures makes me feel warm inside.

My little people were even cooperative, and they look so big….when did that happen?

They used to be much, much smaller.

But I adore where they are now, even though I will always miss those little babies that they were.  2011 10 20_11fall

I’ve heard it said before, the days are long but the years are short.  It’s so true.  Sad, but true.

In a blink, they are nearly as tall as their mom.  (That’s not saying much for this mom, but you know how they grow…like weeds I tell you, like weeds.)
We might not make it to the pumpkin patch, but that’s okay.  We sure had fun.  And Fred Meyer has a pretty good supply of pumpkins these days.  :)


  1. oh wow, i love those photos. i want to hang out with you and your lovely kids. what a blessing that all worked out for you to capture them like this. i know it's a rare feat!

  2. That is one of my very favorite spots too! Last summer I convinced Todd to stop there and I did some pics of us with my camera on a tripod. :)

  3. Love the pictures. I'm printing the first one as a future picture to paint. Colors are amazing. The pictures of the kids are awesome. You captured them beautifully.

  4. "the days ARE long, and the years ARE short!"


    beautiful colors.

    looks like a place near us. i need to stop and go there. the days are definitely long enough to!

  5. Love the photos and the setting and makes me love fall even more. Thanks for posting...awesome pictures of the kiddos! And you are right, they are not little any more; missing the babies but loving the changes too.


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
