A Fall Sunday

Today was pretty much a perfect fall day. We set out around 9:00 for a family run. As a double bonus, this weekend was a "short" weekend--only 10 miles! The weather was perfect. I actually wore a shirt. We picked up an iced mocha from Dunkin' Donuts for our "recovery" drink, and headed to an orchard. We picked a few apples, bought a few pumpkins, and ate a few donuts. Then, after nap (Abby and James), we carved up Abby's pumpkin while we (Mom and Dad) shared a pumpkin beer. Then we got pizza from our favorite pizza place and ate some chocolate-caramel-toffee-whipped cream cake for dessert. Perfect.


Some cute sibling pictures.

Some Grandma Time

Over my birthday weekend (also known as Labor Day weekend), Grandma Mettler flew out to visit us. This allowed us to do many things. For one thing, she took us out to eat every night. For another, she babysat so that Alex and I could celebrate our 7th anniversary with a 50 mile bike ride together and dinner out BY OURSELVES. And, on my birthday proper, Alex and I ran a 20K run together. Again, BY OURSELVES. Amazing. Don't get me wrong, we also enjoyed her company!

Here are a few photos from the weekend featuring Grandma Mettler.

Thank you Grandma Mettler and we miss you already!
