We have had the MOST beautiful weather here in Minnesota! I sometimes will complain about how cold it gets here in the winter, but truly, I could never live anywhere else. I absolutely love every season!
Every fall we try to get one last boat ride on the lake. This year it was impossible to find a day where everyone was home. Insert sad face. However last Saturday Brad and I found ourselves without any kids for the day and decided to take advantage of it!
We cruised the lake for a couple hours and the weather was perfect.
It was so nice to just hang out together, we don't get that too often! Saturday night we had a bonfire and just chilled, it was glorious.
Sunday Brad and Alayna went duck hunting bright and early. They didn't have much luck with the ducks, but they had a blast! I know it was tough for Brad, as this was the first time in 9 years hunting without Jazzy. Duck hunting is Brad's favorite, and seeing him not excited to hunt this year was hard.
Despite missing our sweet girl, Alayna had a ton of fun, her fave part is eating swiss cake rolls, haha!
This might be the coolest picture ever, Brad took it that morning. Stunning!
Sunday afternoon we hit up the local apple orchards. The weather was incredible, and the orchards were PACKED. Holy cats.
Alayna's obligatory pic.
On our way to the next orchard, we stopped down the road at a little church in the woods and decided to get some photos. These are by far some of my faves!!
We have been loving fall, the cooler weather, all the pumpkin breads/scones/muffins, the yummy fall candles and the cozy nights. Rachel had her volleyball team over for supper last week and several of the girls made comments on how cozy our house is, I LOVED that! I just want people to feel at home when they walk in the door.
