Unexpected Surprises


IMG_0096 This morning it was nice and cloudy but warm outside, so I took Autumn to the park to try out my new camera w/ different settings.  The first thing she saw when we got there was this little fish and she kept saying, “Nemo! Nemo!”  I wish my camera had more bokeh.  I had it on the lowest # for aperture (which is only 5.8).  But, I still got some cute pics of Autumn and she had a blast running around.

IMG_0103 The playground was too wet to play on very much, so we walked over to the duck pond to say hi to the ducks.  I thought this picture was so serene and calming.

IMG_0101 There was a man and his son sitting on a bench by the pond and they had a big bag of bread that they shared w/ Autumn & I so we could feed the ducks.  It was a nice unexpected surprise.  Autumn loved it and could have stayed there all day.

IMG_0117 We went over to Mom & Dad’s house so Autumn could see Dad before he left for work (that was the only way I could bribe her to leave the park…was to tell her we were going to go see Papa).  Nick has the flu, so I practiced using my camera settings on him since he was just laying there.  He was a good sport about it.

IMG_0121 We spent the afternoon watching football (go BYU) and made some yummy spaghetti.  Autumn watched Mulan at least 2 times and had fun covering up her babies w/ dish towels.

IMG_0127 I got some angry texts today from someone in my past accusing me of something I did not do.  It was a unwanted and unexpected surprise.  Autumn wanted to eat a fortune cookie we had in a bowl and guess what the fortune inside was?  It fit the situation perfectly!  Who cares what this person thinks I did or didn’t do, b/c I know the truth and that’s all that matters.

IMG_0128 Autumn refused to take a nap this afternoon, but once Dad got her to sit still for two seconds, she was OUT!  I ran to Hobby Lobby while she was asleep to get a few things for some Christmas gifts, but they didn’t have what I needed.  I am glad I didn’t try and take Autumn to the store w/ me, b/c the place was PACKED due to a lot of 50% off sales.

We spent the rest of the evening just relaxing and spending time together as a family.  I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is next week…where has this year gone?  I love this time of the year and I’ve been naughty and already started listening to Christmas music b/c it makes me so happy.  I hope everyone else had a nice and relaxing Saturday.

Sure would be nice to know who DID do it :) Glad it didn't ruin your day though.
