There is nothing better than fall weekends. I can't fathom living somewhere a fall chill doesn't replace summer's heat. Everything about fall makes me happy...except maybe that it just isn't long enough :)
Friday night we went out to my in-laws' farm. The farm is the perfect place to relax and enjoy fall. And hanging out there on a Friday night is a wonderful transition from a crazy week into a fun weekend. For dinner we roasted hotdogs on the fire. I took some turkey hotdogs for my husband and me. As you can see below I sub-contracted the roasting...he does a much better job than I do. My mother-in-law is the most generous hostess. She made apple cake and pumpkin pie...perfect fall food. I did have some of each, but I took half portions so I could enjoy them without guilt.
By the time we got to the park, Millie was ready to go. She got herself a stick and we started out on the three mile hike we picked out. I can't believe my husband is actually wearing his Garmin watch and we didn't think to start it. I would have loved to see our speed and the elevation changes.
In closing, I feel like I need to address the "elephant in the woods". My husband is extremely manly, very chivalrous....okay, okay....it is European!!! He was such a good sport to carry my purse...umm..I mean my European shoulder bag :)
Cloud watching on the drive home was the ideal icing on a wonderful fall morning.
