Minnesota Fall

Fall in Minnesota.  I’m not sure it gets much better.  Our family flew out to Sam’s hometown last week….our first family vacation of the year.  Which is kind of sad to say out loud, but made it that much more enjoyable.  And it helped that we were escaping the 90 degree heat of San Diego and entering into the most magical Fall weather (and colors!) imaginable.  Drinking hot drinks and wearing (gasp) a coat! ;)  It’s the way Fall ought to feel.  Maybe San Diego will take a hint and shape up next year, but experiencing the Fall in Minnesota seriously got me thinking about moving there.  But then I remembered how long the winter’s last and I’m not sure my California bones could endure it.  Regardless….it gave home a run for it’s money.

Sam and I had the chance to spend some time alone, sans kids, visiting his old stomping grounds and meeting up with old (and new!) friends.  Rylee and Cru got loved on all week by their Grammy and Grampy.  We did all the ‘Fall things’. Pumpkin patches, apple orchards, playing in the leaves…..it was perfect.  The tree’s alone were worth the trip.  Apparently we came at the tail end of Fall, just before the trees decide   Rylee fell in love with Grammy’s new kitty Percy. The second she woke up in the morning she wanted to go in the barn to feed him and snuggle him.  It was the cutest thing.  It made me ache for another kitty again just for that sweet little relationship.  Thanks for being so good to us Minnesota, we’ll be back again soon.
