FALL: el otoƱo

October 27, 2007

April is from Merritt Island, Florida where the beaches are beautiful, the tropical plants are never ending and the temperatures are very decent all year round. The seasons down there (as you can kind of guess) are far different than what we have up here in the MD. The changes in season are not very obvious and/or interesting. I never really appreciated the Fall season before April moved up here in May, 2005 and showed me how great the season changes are. Now Fall is our family’s favorite time of the year. We enjoy especially going to get pumpkins and mums, carving the pumpkins, driving around looking at all of the different tree colors as the leaves are changing…and April loves decorating the kitchen window and table with fall themes. Fall has taken a while to get here this year, but here are some pictures of what we’ve been up to so far. (Mainly dealing with pumpkins of course…)

My mommy, daddy, and I love to play together on my playmat. I have started reaching for my toys that hang from my playmat. I love to grab the ladybug and cardinal. I also smile and laugh because it is so much fun.
