I don't think I have ever appreciated the beauty of Autumn as much as I have this year. Maybe it's because I have a toddler who loves to kick around in the fallen foliage and I have time to appreciate the beauty around me, or maybe we're just having a particularly gorgeous one. We're spending lots of time at the park lately and enjoying all the loveliness.
Recently, I have seen all these beautiful photos on various blogs of kids in Pumpkin patches. What a wonderful backdrop it makes for an autumnal style photo shoot. I wish we had access to something like that over here. We don't. There is simply nothing like it in Ireland. So I bought a couple of pumpkins to create my own - and I don't even like pumpkin! Being a household that doesn't like waste, my 'foody' husband, and the better cook out of the two of us, is going to give pumpkin fritters a go. Sure, I'll give 'em a try.
In the past week Jack is making excellent progress with the talking. The joy of hearing these first few words is indescribable! And he gets clearer every day.
Today he was wearing a red coat and yellow skinny jeans from Zara Kids. He's also stomping about in the crisp leaves in his brown leather Converse. An outfit to compliment the season I think.
