Fall Fun


I knew there was a reason this is one of my favorite times of year. And I will admit that Iowa was absolutely beautiful this time of year, especially down at the Nature Center and on the drive there. This is about the only time of year I miss the scenery in Iowa. But you sure can't beat the view of snow capped mountains over the blazing yellow cottonwoods when you're driving through town. It's breathtaking. I needed to get out of the house today, so Ellie and I ate lunch with Leif (Wednesday's Cosmic pizza day, you know) and then drove around Bozeman, enjoying the colors. I love being in the old part of town when the leaves are changing. Pretty much all the streets are lined with these big, tall, beautiful trees that leave their leaves swirling in the road when cars go past. It's pretty. We stopped at Bogert park and took some pictures of Ellie in the leaves, too. I've been wanting to take some of these and I think we got some today that turned out great. It wasn't until I got home and uploaded the pictures to the computer that I realized I'd taken the 10,000th picture on our camera. Wow. We've taken 10,000 pictures since we got the camera a couple years ago. Crazy. Anyway- Here are the pictures. Enjoy!

What great pictures! One of my favorite scrapbook pages I've done is one with Russ (about a year old) playing in the leaves and it's titled "See Russell Rustle" :-) You take great pics!

I love fall leaves (though we don't see many around San Antonio...) I got a pic of Mari at 2 years totally covered in them with just her head sticking out- it was too cute! I love to see your updates- Ellie is just getting cuter every day!
