Annual Leaf Ride

Every fall Mom would take Grandma for a ride to see the leaves. One of the lasts trips that my father took before he passed away was just such a trip. Last week Mom and I continued the ritual. We went on a back road that I have never been on before. Stopped at a beautiful tree near Thompson Cemetary and took some pictures.

Family Night

The weather was perfect for raking leaves in our front yard. We finished raking by the light of the jack-o-lanterns that I carved out.

Andrew managed to get pulled a couple of times so that the leaves would not blow away!!

First Horse Ride

Today was a rather eventful day for Andrew. It started early this morning when we went to Home Depot for the monthly kids project. This month they had him build a fire station that serves as a bank. At the same time Home Depot had invited a lot of emergency personnel to show off their equipment. Besides being privileged to watch the life flight (helicopter) land, he was allowed to climb in the helicopter, sit in a police car, climb into two ambulances, and a fire truck. He was really excited! Of all times, I did not think to take my camera today, so no pictures.

After we arrived home Robert Sorrel stopped by with his horse and offered to take Andrew for a horse ride. Andrew thoroughly enjoyed his first horse ride. I did have presence of mind to take some pictures.
