The weather finally cooled down and became AWESOME just in time for Fall to arrive this past weekend. This just made me GIDDY! First, on Friday we received some much needed rain. I told Luke that if it rained, we were going to find some good puddles to splash in. I was so excited!
During Abbey's afternoon nap, we stepped outside our house (with baby monitor in tow) and began seeking a good splashing puddle.

Later on Friday night, when Daddy got home from work, he helped us search for some good puddles. This was Abbey's first puddle search (yeah, the poor girl has only seen rain a couple of times during her life--it's sad). I forgot the camera for the HUGE puddle that we found as a family. But, I grabbed it in time for Abbey to test out the tiny puddle that Luke and I found earlier.
|See here, Abbey. This is where you jump.|
|Abbey doesn't like her hands to get dirty.|
Anyway--let's transition back to the outdoors from the food discussion. For some reason, at our house when the weather is beautiful, we all just want to blow bubbles in our backyard. So, that is what we did.

|Praise the Lord for Fall!|
|I think these two may be just a bit competitive already. I really don't know where they acquired that trait.|

|And the day just wouldn't be complete without a race...or 20. He leaves his sister in the dust. But, she kept wanting to "re-do" the race so that she could try to win. That's why there were 20 races.|
Thank you, Lord, for the fun fall weekend and the ability to enjoy your beautiful creation!
