Yeah! Jeremy is home

Autumn is my favorite season. I get to pull out all of my cozy sweaters, and i just love the color in the trees. The crisp fall air that makes my nose cool and crunch of leaves beneath my feet make me so happy. There is nothing better than to play with the family on a cool fall day at the Finch Arboretum. And what makes it even more special is that we have been missing Jeremy for weeks now. It was nice to have him home for one day and not deal with the business. The boys raked up several piles of leaves to jump into and throw all over.
Lots of giggles, Carli especially enjoyed the leaf throwing.
I wish I had a video of that action.
Of course there was football involved.

And tree climbing...
more tree climbing...
and more tree climbing!
To end our wonderful family fall day we drove to Coeur d'Alene and had dessert at the dockside.
Yeah you know it. You love it. The way over sized desserts, yum!
Jer had the large Butterfinger dessert to himself (well Carli helped a little) and the boys had one to share. Me of course (being the lactose intolerant one) had huckleberry cobbler.
What a treat!
Happy Fall Everyone!

How fun! I didn't know that you'd been hubby-less that long, that's the pits! You're family is adorable!

I recognize that tree - I had my senior pics taken by it/in it. What a fun day - especially the icecream part!

Love all of your pictures. Aren't trees the best backdrop?
