Fall's Purty Round These Parts

We sure moved into a pretty neighborhood right in time for the show to start. The cul-de-sac is lined with these trees and they started on fire about a week after we moved in. When the sun shines directly on them in the late afternoon it truly looks like flames. I love to walk around and around the cul de sac with Nora and just listen to the crunching, breathe in the musty smell and look at the beauty. There is a view of the Cascade Mountain Range on a clear day from our street. And if you cross to the neighborhood across the main road, there is a view of the Olympics. Oh My!

Hey, there's a cute little boy pushing a darling baby boy in a stroller. Wait, I know that little boy. And that baby's not a's a girl wearing her brother's hand-me-down jacket!
Pictures really don't do it justice.
Ezra loves to be Nora's babysitter. And she adores him.
The leaves have almost all fallen by now and they are a couple inches thick on the sidewalk. The kids love to go barrelling through on their bikes and send them scattering to the four winds. The best part is...they start in front of the next door neighbor's we can look and not have to rake up the mess.

I think that this little view is kinda cute too : )
May you experience the beauty falling all around you as well!
