We *heart* Fall

For the past 27 months, I (and the 5 littles) haven't left the house much. It's been really hard for me to adjust to taking all 5 of them out and about. Not without some help anyways. I just haven't been comfortable with the safety issues of me trying to manage 5 children under the age of 5 in public, by myself. Heck, even when I have help it's so much work that we usually just make sure someone is here to stay with at least a few of the littles so that we don't have to take them out.

Long story short, we NEED to get out more. Alot more. The babies are getting older (Almost TWO!!) and it IS getting easier to be out and about. I'm slowly trying things here and there.

Today, I decided that I needed to be a FUN mama again and take the kids to the Pumpkin Patch.

I called my sister and asked if her and her daughter would like to go. So we all went. (All but Aaron and Joey, they were at a soccer game) We had a blast. The kids had fun. We even dressed them in their costumes to make it extra special. Helps with cuter photos too :)

Emilia and Gwendolen were scared TO DEATH. (They freak out now whenever they have to go outside, and won't even WALK outside by themselves. I'm hoping more outings will help) Rosalie loved it. Cassidy (my niece), Annie and Lilah were thrilled. Juliette, Noah and Noah's girlfriend just hung back and helped/watched.

Pretty sure Fall is my most favorite season. Here are just a few beautiful reasons why:
