First Snowfall memories

We were surprised by a bit of snow Friday afternoon that lasted into Saturday.  A few inches and warmer temps led to great snow for playing in.  Snowmen, snowball fights, attempts at sledding, and lots of giggles filled the backyard.





And while I was glad it melted quickly, as many first snowfalls do, the snow filled our day with fun memories here on the Gravelly Road.

Halloween 2017



Happy Halloween from a Lego Ninjago Ninja, a snow-girl, and Chewbacca.  We went to a local Halloween party the weekend before with pumpkin carving and cookie decorating.  Then the kids enjoyed trick-or-treating at the downtown businesses on Halloween.





Just a little Halloween fun from Life on the Gravelly Road.

Fall Camping 2017 (photo overload)

We spent the kids' long fall break camping, one last time.  It was our only fall camping trip this year and reminded us of all the things we love about fall camping: cooler temps, beautiful fall colors, and earlier sunsets that mean campfire fun can start earlier (with more reasonable bedtimes).

Because the campground was near where hubby and I grew up, it also meant the kids got to see both sets of grandparents and 2 sets of great grandparents.  We even got to visit with my in-laws at a local apple orchard which was a lot of fall fun as well (apples, bouncy houses, and hay bales).







Plus lots of hiking, games, yummy campfire food, and fall memories.  And now we are back home on the gravelly road, back into the school routine.

Zoo in the Fall

We enjoyed another day at the zoo, this time with my sister coming as well.  A beautiful fall day spent outside exploring and playing.  The kids really enjoyed the new kangaroo exhibit, plus all the play areas that are always a favorite.  We even made it to the bird show this time and ended our day going out to eat on our way home.
