Fabulous Family Day

The weather forecast today said it would be sunny, cloudy, sunny, cloudy all day long. So, we took the good with the bad. When the sun was out, so were we! When it wasn't... we made do with tons of other things!

Our Fabulous Family Day started with homemade pancakes - Always a hit:

Then, miraculous, right when we were ready to get outside, the sun shone down - We were out the door in search of leaves. H.Bo (AKA: Hunter) was so eager to collect leaves that we filled the envelope up before we even left our yard! He's a very diligent little leaf collector:

The forecast didn't lie, we did end up getting cloudy/cold parts of the day. That's when we decided to go to the library. We needed to rotate our basket of books to represent the appropriate season. With the autumn solstice having just past, we figured we better get on it.

On our reading list these days:

The Very Busy Spider - Eric Carle

Terrific Trains - Tony Mitton & Ant Parker
Although not a 'seasonal' book, trains never go out of style in this house!

Dora's Chilly Day - Kiki Thorpe

Apple Cider Making Days - Ann Purmell

Then, to finish the day off, D, H.Bo and I headed out for dinner. We won't tell you where, but H.Bo got to wear moose antlers while sipping his chocolate milk : )
