Fall in the Woods

We've had a few cold days, but for the most part this fall has been beautiful! The leaves are falling at camp and at our house which means that I can rake for over an hour on one day and then three days later start back at square one (but if I ignore it completely then it's way too big of a job by the time the leaves are all down). Sora is of course trying to hold on to summer as long as possible by wearing flip flops and going barefoot whenever possible.

She recently found an abandoned Barbie (one of the camp staff found it while cleaning a cabin and Sora is the natural inheritor of all girly toys left at camp). Sora is very taken with "Cinderella Barbie" and she goes everywhere with Sora.

The barbie got a seahawks outfit so that she and Sora can match. Sora's a big fan (of the Hawks and the outfit).

Today was our annual pumpkin patch trip with our play group. The weather was perfect and of course Sora loved every part of it.
We have never played in the giant sandbox - the past two years were too cold! This year she and her friend could have spent hours there. Sora was busy making chocolate ice cream for her chocolate ice cream store. I hate to be a tough critic, but the ice cream did taste pretty sandy.

That pretty much sums up our life lately! Sora was a little under the weather last week, but is back to her mostly happy self now and is enjoying the fall with a lot of thoughts on Halloween costumes, jack-o-lanterns, and pretend spooky things.
