Last week we escaped our usual Thursday grind and headed to Julian for a family day. The plan was to go apple picking, which I’ve surprisingly never done before, but apparently the picking season ended early this year because of the drought. Instead, we ended up at Cuyamaca Sate Park wandering through the most beautiful gold colored meadows scattered with these gigantic oak trees. We even spotted a baby deer and it’s momma, which just about made Rylee’s year :) You can actually see them really small resting beneath the tree in the photo above. I’m realizing more and more what a nature lover Rylee is. I think she is probably most happy when she is outdoors, discovering new things and talking about animals. She loves to learn about trees and bugs and is just so curious about everything. I don’t think she ever stopped asking me questions along our hike! I love that about her. Cru man slept most of the time on Sam. Praise the Lord. (sidenote: nothing is cuter to me than seeing a man wearing a baby, am I right!?? Thanks for this one Modern Wrap) After our long hike we drove into the town of Julian for some lunch and apple pie. It felt like “real fall” everywhere we looked. The fall I dream about with beautiful golden leaves all around us, cold crisp air but the warm sun shining down. It was the best day.
