October weekend

Royce and I are the MASTERS of easy weekends. We know how to enjoy our time and make it last by s-l-o-w-i-n-g down. It's a learned skill we plan on teaching the girls. It's important to us. We hear friends and family talk of busy this and running here and gotta do's and it's enough to make our heads spin. It's easy to get wrapped up in a crazy schedule you've created for yourself and not take time to stop and smell the baby powder. It took me a while to learn to live in the moment and when or if you learn to do it - it's life changing. It will make you appreciate moments you probably would have missed, it will teach you to get past the most stressful situations in your life with more ease and it will allow your life to move at a speed that lets you take in every little moment.

Yesterday we brought the girls to The Green Barn to see some pumpkins for the first time. They loved them - how could they not. That bright orange is something only nature could perfect!

Today we strolled around the park and took in the warm sun and changing leaves. The girls got their fill of fresh air and slipped into an oxygen induced slumber half way through our walk. I bet napping while out in the stroller is kind of like napping while camping. Those are the best naps.

Here are some pictures from this afternoon. Our friends have said the twins are becoming memorable for all of their critter hoodies and hats.
