On Sunday we took a drive, and with the window down to catch the last hints
of balmy air, I noted a distinct crispness that wasn't there just a week ago.
And the GOLDS! Oh the golden hues lighting up our landscape. I swoon!
(and couldn't help sticking the camera out the window)
Another view I like in the fall:
He's got his work cut out for him, but what a guy! And now there's a ripe harvest of help.
and gettin' it stacked! I just hope the novelty sticks until the shed is completely full :-)
Getting back to our Sunday drive...
We spent some family time; the kids took over the playground,
and mom and dad took in the beautiful lake view!
You know what we did after all this fun? We had more fun!
We did. We went to a local brewery and ate dinner together - but not just any dinner, no.
It was a "dad" kind of dinner. A memory-maker for sure!
First we ordered about 6 appetizers or so; things like Buffalo Wings, and Calamari, and Cheese Sticks
OH yes! That was dinner. But wait...
Dad followed up our appetizer-entre with a humongous Brownie heaped with ice cream and whipped cream
and drizzled with chocolate syrup. Two. Two of them. We put one in the center of a table
and removed the chairs so our whole tribe (or Pack of hungry Lions, as they were referred to by the waitress) could gather around it with spoons.
The other was for me and dad. What a guy! (I keep saying that) And it was an amazingly quiet dessert
despite the copious amounts of grease and sugar they consumed and it was just plain ol' good times.
What more can I say? It's very hard to beat a Sunday outing like that.
Give us a week to recover and we may try though :-)
