Day at the Zoo

So it's been a while but I finally got time to post these pictures of us at the Zoo!
Mark next to last year's proxy.
Nora was watching the monkey's and then would randomly freeze in this position!
Merrill was exhausted by the bird show at the end of the morning.
We had a blast!

Everything good happens to me in autumn!
I was born in autumn
I fell in love with my wonderful Mark and then he proposed in autumn
Merrill was born in autumn
Nora was born in autumn
I love school time in autumn - the idea of starting a new year, learning new things and new classes - it is exciting!
I love the smells of autumn! Everything from the crispiness of the fresh cold air to the warm smell of pumpkin pie in the oven. Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and cloves... mmmmmm!
Autumn is a time of anticipation... the big holidays are coming! Halloween, Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS!!!!
There is so much fun in harvesting gardens and putting up the food for the winter.
The colors! The colors! The colors! I love the orange, brown, and the beautiful burgundy! The whole world turns into a gorgeous painting of all of my favorite colors as soon as I step outside!
Sweaters! I love wearing sweaters, hoodies, thick socks and long sleeves, curling up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate (even pumpkin spice hot chocolate) and enjoying the shortening days with earlier bedtimes! : )

Anyway... I love autumn... and it is autumn... yea!
