The bank by my house was reporting 79 degrees today. The lady at the grocery store thought that it was a record high for today. Record or not...today was glorious. And my favorite tree in our yard is the most amazing of colors right now. It is normally a deep purple but an amber color has filled it in so only the edges are purple. The girls and I love it and Isabelle is anxious for its leaves to fall so she can keep them as her treasure. And Macie is enjoying bonus time with her new wagon (Thank you Mum-Mum and Papa).

I'm so jealous of your gorgeous tree! Ours are all maples and they just turn this drab yellowish brown. I covet other peoples' bright red and purple trees...whoops. Shouldn't covet. :)

What an amazing gift from God. An extra time to enjoy His creation without freezing.

See you in a couple of weeks.

The wagon must be a favorite part of every person's childhood. Please tell me it's a red, radioflyer. Do they still make those? I remember losing a tooth after trying to drive my red radioflyer down a steep hill. It was so worth it!

I had that same Radio flyer wagon...I did not lose any teeth but by the time we were done with it, it no longer had any wooden sides. Ours is red, but not a radio flyer one--they do still make them (in plastic and in the original version).

Wagons bring back great memories : ). I think my parents still have the one we had when we were little. I remember it was SO exciting at Christmas when I was 5 to get a new wagon. I am glad Macie got one. The leaves are beautiful!
