Autumn is finally here

Autumn is my favorite season... wonderful holidays, perfect weather, and beautiful scenery. I have to say it is especially beautiful here in upstate NY. My favorite fall activity so far has been apple picking. Whittier Apple Farm



Daniel and his buddy Nate

Apple picking is so much sweeter with an adorable girl (Alexis)

Checking out all the apples
helping mom
It has been so warm this fall that there were still raspberries to pickbut Daniel ate the sweet berries as fast as I could pick them

by the end the babies were a little sick of riding in the wagon (Brian, Daniel, Nate & Alexis)

That night we went out on a walk in a field full of geese. I had to post this picture because Daniel looks SO much like Bryson here!
and here too!


Taylor came into town to interview at University of Rochester Medical School. One of the days he was here we took a trip to Palmyra. It was a beautiful day and almost 80 degrees... not typical NY fall weather.

Yeah! More pics of Danny!! That's so fun that you and Danny go apple picking! What a big-boy helper! I also LOVE the picture of the babies crying in the wagon - hysterical! I'll be expecting some yummy, fresh-picked apples when we come out for Thanksgiving... :) jk. The close-up pictures of Danny do look like Bryson but I see SO much of you in him too. Either way, he's so FREAKIN' ADORABLE!!!

I'm glad that you were able to take Taylor to Palmyra. I bet he really enjoyed that. I can't wait to visit there myself in about a month! YEAH!!! Love you guys!

I just love Daniel's overalls. There's nothing like a baby in overalls! We need to go to one of the local apple picking farms here before it gets too late. That's one of my favorite things about living out east... we never got to pick apples at an orchard in San Diego!

By the way, that last comment was from me... not from Ben. I think he'd be embarrassed to say that your baby looks adorable in overalls.

Jen, he is getting SO BIG! What a cute guy, I'm still sad that I've never met him! I wish we lived closer to each other. I love the pictures of him in the wagon- and apple picking...it doesn't get any better than that in the fall :) I miss you Jen!!! Give him a squeeze for me and be sure to tell him about his future girlfriend Sascha.

PS I did send in Sascha's pic to the gap, thanks for the tip :)
