The only time you should run ...

Up to this point in my life I have been of the opinion that the only time you should run is when someone is chasing you!

I love/hate jogging with my new "racing" stroller in the mornings. Scot has been coming along for the run too, and it is nice to start my morning with a little sweat, a little family time, and a little fresh air. So what is to hate you may ask ... Have you ever gone running? It's the aching back, knees, quads, shins, and ankles that scream at me for days. Advil cant' touch it. Tylenol can't touch it. Mixing the two can't touch it. My only hope is that it will start to get better as I get in better shape. One can hope right!?!

Thanks babe for the new jogging stroller that is kicking my butt!

We went for our annual drive up the canyon to look at the changing leaves and take a few pictures. This is a tradition three years in the making, but this is the first year that Larkin was with us to enjoy this autumnal family outing.

We love this time of year and the outing was made all the more special because it was the only day we have been able to spend as a family in weeks. We are crazy busy right now, and this drive up the canyon was good for the soul!

I drove up by the canyon yesterday. It's a drive I used to make every day on my way to work, but I don't have a reason to venture out that way very often anymore. As I was driving in the car, singing the ABC's, and fully focused on the errands I had to get done, I looked up onto the mountain and saw that the leaves are starting to turn!

This is my favorite time of year! I love the crisp mornings, sweaters, the smell of earth mixing in the air, and the mountains that are ablaze with autumn colors. It has been in the air for a while now, but the trees finally agree ... autumn has arrived!
