Apple orchard



Back in September we visited the same apple orchard we've been going to since my oldest was a year old. It's an activity we look forward to every fall. Each year the orchard adds more and more stuff, and each visit we like it a little less. This year the quaint orchard felt more like a tourist trap; and that's very disappointing. The kids still enjoyed it, so I suppose that's what matters most.

Oh those summer days!

"At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, hair should be messy, and eyes sparkling."
-Shanti


Life got busy--like real busy--when the leaves started changing colors. I had to put personal projects on the back burner for a bit to make room for professional ones. The boys started school, Jillie and I settled into our routine with just the two of us, and then, suddenly, it was one photo session after another, with family stuff thrown in to make it even crazier.

Now that the snow is falling, things are starting to calm down just the teensiest of bit, and so I took a few moments here and there in my day to finally compile our summer film.

It was so fun going through the video clips. Bare feet and swimsuits and the carefree days of summer are my favorite. Now that we're on the cusp of longer winter months, I wish we could spend just a few more hours splashing around in the kiddie pool.

I've got a handful more films on my docket, so stay tuned for some more......when I find a few more free moments in our days.
