where we wandered (weekend edition)

it's the end of the weekend and i'm being a good blogger and processing/editing my pictures from the past few days.

on saturday, we had soccer games and an impromptu halloween cookie party. (nana sent us cookies and we decorated them last was such a hit, they requested a repeat this weekend).

today we cleaned the house. and cleaned it some more. and put away laundry. and ate every snack we could get our hands on. and snacked some more. and then couldn't finish our dinners because "we don't eat that stuff, anyway." (blergh!)

we also went for another hike around the property and the more we see of it, the more i'm convinced that with enough costumes, enough wine and colin firth cardboard cut out propped up against a barn somewhere, i could probably convince myself i'm living in a jane austen novel.

i know i've posted creek and foliage pictures before...but something tells me the colors won't be around much longer and we should enjoy it while we can.

they were looking for worms. all they found were mashed, rotted black walnuts and it took a good few minutes to convince them they couldn't keep them.

this creek goes back pretty far and even forks into three little branches. never knew it did that...

what you are missing here is the smell. this is basically cow highway...the herd travels back and forth over this creek and to the hills back there sometimes. so, um, the mud is a little pungent in spots.

hello, gorgeous thing, you.

i really can't explain my fascination with moss. it's pretty much the most amazing thing ever. even better than thin mint cookies and ice cream. well, maybe not that amazing...but i still love it.

 random shot of kenna and her dad. i'm pretty sure she's demanding that he carry her empty worm bucket. she did it two of three times on the walk and was disappointed every's not the one to boss around, it seems.
