the Red Trees

October 21, 2014 | This year I was alerted to something amazing…a location at an old tree farm with glowing red trees as far as you could see.  Naturally I scouted the location (with Dave and E in tow) and immediately moved all of my client-sessions out there for the week.  But of course I had to have some of my own family photos out there!

Lenexa Chili Challenge!

October 18, 2014 | Our great friends Andrew & Courtney have a chili team (Fire in the HOLE!) that participates in the Lenexa Challenge every year!  It’s a fun event that’s free to the public, and each team is required to set out samples for people to try.  LOTS of beans… 🙂  E was kinda cutting some teeth so she wasn’t thrilled (even took a nap in her stroller) but the weather was perfect, and it’s always fun to see some friends!

Pumpkin Patch!

October 12, 2014 | The patch has been an annual tradition for me, even before kiddos. Last year it was just my sister and I (plus our Starbucks) and we spent at least an hour out there selecting the perfect trio of pumpkins for our porches.  I remember thinking that THIS year I would have a kiddo, able to sit up on his/her own…wow that’s crazy!  Well it certainly wasn’t the same…it was so much better.  We lasted about 20 minutes between B not loving his carrier and the weather being a bit cold.  But I took lots of pics, and we even made it over to the Cider Mill for some donuts & hot cider!  I love this time of year…

Royals win the AL!

October 15, 2014 | What an exciting evening tonight!  I’m not even a BIG baseball fan, but after 29 years the Royals are going to the World Series!  As soon as the game was over, we ran out front to take some pics of E in her Dad’s hat from around 1985.  So cool!
