Turn Turn Turn.





I LOVE early Autumn evenings.
---Hello cool breeze,
crunchy leaves,
and crisp air.---

I LOVE that it is a perfect time to escape the indoors, dress in our most comfy sweats and tees, make our way down to the big, open field down the street, and just play. 
---Hudson's personality
was on full display,
as he collected pine cones and rocks,
learned how to coax bugs out of a hole,
and did his best Bugs Bunny impression
with the assistance of a stick
(playing the part of a carrot.)
"Ehhh, what's up Doc?"---

I LOVE that the setting sun lights up the changing trees....a mixture of shiny yellow and deep orange with flecks of fading green. Sometimes it looks like the leaves are on fire. 
---Glow on, trees.
You look great
in that color. ---

Happy Weekend. Here's hoping you're LOVING Autumn, too. 

& here is a a little film of us....enjoying Autumn.

Hudson looks like he has grown so much in the short time I've been reading your blog. Those pictures of him hamming it up are ADORABLE! Definitely ones to bring out for his 21st :)

Yes, Autumn is great. Always so nice if you've had a hot summer. Don't go catching any colds tho!!

Laura Elizabeth said...

PS I just saw the video you posted. Wow, how on earth do you put together those videos? They are phenomenal!

Fall is so beautiful, but I am really going to miss summer.

Great family pictures.

This is such a cute post and you're so right about the crisp autumn nights. These pics remind me of when I played soccer as a little kid on nights like that. Hudson is so adorable. Great family!

Such a great line! Love the way you captured the beginnings of fall. So much beauty--so much color. Your little man is always fun to watch. Love how you capture the special moments.

Bugs Bunny said...

Well This was a fun little stroll up to UNA's east campus field. I hope since the weather has cooled down we can start going more often on our evening walk/bike rides. Just so you know Hudson we caught your first chicken chocker from the ground. We were also acting like that was a cigar while your mom was not looking. haha Great pictures yet again Swoop. Oh and the video. You do such a great job with your videos!

LOVE YOU!!!
