i am the worst right now at staying on top of anything! it’s mid december already and i am going through my photo folders and realized i never shared these images from a saturday we spent in november with friends in central park. it was such a beautiful colorful and warm day, and considering that my weather app is currently telling me it feels like 11 degrees outside today, i’m like, TAKE ME BACK!!!!!
our friends have four of the most beautiful boys you ever did see, and they are such a great family. i love the way stephanie mothers and since her two older boys are a few years older than eleanor (the younger two are samson’s age!), i feel like i am constantly asking her what she did with them at my current stage, because her oldest always has a ginormous book in his hand and all four of them are just really well mannered and kind.
anyway, this was such a fun day. turtle pond in central park has become one of my most favorite spots to picnic and hang out. currently missing all those bright vibrant colors on the tree tops! i didn’t even realize how gone they were until i looked at these pictures. fall always ends a little too quickly for me.
eleanor and her super hero mask crack me up. we had a little program in our church where all the little kids get up and give small parts at the pulpit and sing songs together for the congregation (we call it a primary program). eleanor wore her super hero mask on her forehead kind of as a headband (she loves to accessorize in the cutest way ever) and i died when she got up to the big microphone to say her part with it on. it was very sweet. i love that she just loves being herself and i really hope she will always be that way.
so many people on the castle!!!!!
these toys are seriously the worst idea i’ve ever had.
this red tree was over by the shakespeare theatre and everyone was stopping and taking pictures of it. it was the most red tree i have ever seen. i seriously would not stop talking about it on this day and now that i am looking back at these pictures, it’s like i’ve got a second wind and will probably talk about it nonstop for the next 24 hours! just so beautiful. mother nature is something else.
my friend stephanie took this photo as conrad just kind of leaned up against me as we were chatting and took a little nap. i know my days are numbered where he’ll nap on me in random places so i soaking it all up while i can.
wouldn’t be a proper get together without josh and uri throwing the kids in the air. like, every time over the past four years we’ve known them! haha.
hope you all are staying WARM today! there isn’t any color on the trees anymore but there is SNOW forecast for all day saturday and we’re hoping it sticks for a little while so we can play in it!
