A Walk in Fall

What a great morning. Today is Clyde's fifth birthday. To celebrate we started out the day by going to River Legacy Park which has miles of walking paths. The weather was perfect, the leaves were changing and the kids actually behaved!
We watched a wooly bear cross our path. We were 'warned' by passers-by in the other direction of a coyote and a bobcat. Oddly enough the family walking with a 5 year old and a 2 year old did NOT see any of these things. Could it have been the peace and quiet that accompanied us on our walk?
I was awed by the beauty that fall is offering us here in Texas this year. We've had a lot of rain and the trees are actually holding on to those leaves for a bit longer than normal. I fell back a lot. I liked watching my kids and my husband intereact. And, I'll admit, the farther back I got the quieter it was.

Poor little wooly bear...

Ahh... She is definitely a daddy's girl

My FIVE year old.


Not sure what kind of bug this is but the kids though it was cool

looks like a great time! This fall has seemed particularly beautiful to me, too. We're getting so much color and the weather is glorious. Happy Birthday to Clyde - halfway to double digits, wow!
