autumn

..





On the equinox I really felt the need to go be in the aspens. And so that's exactly what we did.

















We decided to have an evening picnic at the lake.



It was actually quite warm and the girls were able to spend hours playing in the sand and beside the water.





We walked up the river after dinner. The lake was very low.







Chessa of course walked in the river, my little water child.





And she can never resist digging into that soft cool sand.



Here she was a raccoon. She would run off just a bit further and then drop down and start digging again.



Joined by Chloe, digging a little more tentatively.




It was the perfect way to spend the first day of our beloved autumn.



Wishing you all a beautiful new season!

LOVE those trees. What a beautiful color! We did a bit of digging in the sand last week too...except ours was way across the continent. The sand must have been negginng for little hands to come and play.
