not long after our fall drive, it got really cold. and made for pictures like this, and i was feeling like we got robbed of fall. the good colors and weather only last like 2 weeks until this happened!

it was so sad. the trees were totally frosted over, as you can see.
well, we finally had some nice weather again and even though we got a little bit robbed of some color (the cold weather ruined THAT), we still managed to have the perfect fall day on saturday.
well... mostly perfect.

first, we went to the park with the dog and spent some good quality time getting her some exercise. she hadn't been out for a while - she was SOOOOO excited. crazy dog.

on a side note: i had a stranger ask me about my baby while we were at the park. the first one. personally, i thought she was kind of bold. i mean, i'm starting to show and all, but i'm not THAT big. i thought it was a little sketchy for a stranger to come up and ask me when i'm having a baby. crazy oriental lady. oh well. secretly, i think i liked it.

and there was this one grove of tress that was this awesome orange. the rest were all brown and boring. but this bunch was awesome.

after the park we went downtown and ate pizza at beau jo's and had a delicious meal while sitting on the patio. and we shopped a bit and bought marley some treats that she could eat outside while we were in the stores. no pictures of this part. sorry.

and then we went pumpkin shopping. we picked up our wheelbarrow and headed out into the field. yes, my dreams of picking out a pumpkin from a real pumpkin patch were coming true on this lovely fall day.

much to my dismay, we didn't leave with any. look how horrible the pumpkins were! i was sooooooo disappointed. this is the only part that made the day not completely perfect.

they were ALL like that. the whole field!!!!
rats. well, at least the dog got a good ride out of it.

so then we headed off to the store....

and bought some apples.....

and some caramel....

...only to create the best and most scrumptious fall treat of ALL TIME!!!!

it was heaven.
(heaven has to be sung with a high pitched voice when you read that. because that's how i was saying it when i typed it.)

so we ate them while we watched a good funny movie (iron man), and just stayed in and relaxed for the rest of the night.

short of being able to go on a hay ride on this thing

and finding perfectly shaped pumpkins, it was the best fall day ever.

sometimes, fall rules.
