happy fall

I love fall in Connecticut. It's one of the most beautiful times of year.  The trees are already beautiful shades of orange and red and the mornings start out cool and crisp.  With fall comes my love for baking and I've been busy in the kitchen making apple crisp, pumpkin bread, pumpkin scones, gingersnaps to name a few!  Here are a few snapshots from our weekend that I posted on Instagram.

On Friday I went apple picking with my little guy.  He loved it!  There is a huge pick your own farm and market less than mile from our house.  We go as often as we can. 

I tried a recipe for pumpkin scones that I had found on Pinterest.  They weren't as sweet as I would have liked. 

We had a digger parked in front of our house all weekend (we are putting in new leeching fields) and all three children enjoyed climbing on it.  I loved the contrast of my daughter, dressed in a leotard and tutu, "driving" an enormous construction vehicle.  That's my girl!

And, now that it is cold out, I find myself making cups of tea throughout the day.  My little guy snuck a sip of my green tea and seemed to like it!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend as well and that wherever you live, you are enjoying the start of  Autumn too.
