Fall Photos

I took a few pictures of the kids last week just because the weather was wonderful and they are growing up so fast! There are more pictures of Lyla because she can't run away like Emmet :)

We went to a park and walking trail near our house that had beautiful foliage!

Love these babies!

The Wizard of Oz

When I was three, I would act out the Wizard of Oz every day. I would play Dorothy and make my Mom play all of the other characters. Life has come full circle, because now Emmet is obsessed! He started out watching the Scarecrow - but now his favorite character is "The Green Witch!"

Balloon Race 2014

I love that we have gone to Balloon Race every year since we started dating and I love that Emmet gets more into it every year and I love that Lyla got to go for the first time and I love that my friends came to Natchez too! I know that was a run-on, but there's lots to love!

First night walk to the bluff!

Showing Lyla the Mississippi!

Morning walk to Natchez Coffee!
