The weekend

We had a fun weekend! Bob's nephews son came on Saturday and stayed until Sunday evening. It was so fun having a little person around again. The house was full of activity and noise. :)

He's a cute little guy, very agreeable and funny. There was a lot of laughter around here!


Sunday afternoon the temperature was in the 60's, so I called my sister Cheri and asked if she wanted to go for a hike. We went to a park that neither of us had walked at before.

The leaves this year have been unusual. It seems that a lot of them have fallen already, but then there are areas that look mostly green, as you see in this picture and the one below.

Here is a little splash of color.

As we were walking, we came on this crazy little building. When we went to the front of it, we discovered it was an old two seater outhouse!

Aren't these cool roots?

In this area of the park, many of the leaves had fallen, with this one tree still holding out!

I love this bridge!

This picture looks like it was taken with a fish eye lens, but this is really how it looked. The park was full of hills and ravines - we did our fair share of hiking up long, steep hills!

This is my street - back home again, another weekend done.
Thanking God for time with family and time to enjoy the beauty around us!

PS - no baby yet!!!

I love spending time with my neice and he brings so much joy to my life. These pictures of fall in your area are so pretty.

Beautiful fall weather...makes me wonder if Bob is working away on his Santas for the year! I can't wait to see what he comes up with this year.

The little boy reminds me of my friends son when he was little - so cute!

Loved your photos. What a beautiful area you live in and you're quite handy with the camera too!

Maybe tonight will be "baby night"!

AAAARRRRGGHHHH! What we need here is a full moon.

I don't know how you can do anything but sit and stare at Laura, willing her to give birth.

That little guy is so cute! What expressions!
You've done it again with that camera of yours. What lovely pictures, and I love that bridge too! The picture of your street is so pretty, it could be a post card.
Still praying for a special delivery for all of you! She's going to be so loved!

Penny said...

Wait, wait...a TWO seater outhouse??? Lol!!

Super cute kid! He's absolutely adorable!

What a cute little guy! Adorable!

I was sure hoping you had baby news. I KNOW you do too.

I am still exhausted from my two weeks away. I'm so behind on everything.


Raise Them Up said...

The little guy's faces crack me up! What a cutie! It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend all the way around. Tell Laura we're thinking about her!

Hugs and prayers for the safe debut of your little grand-daughter!

Sylvia said...

Love your pictures..........Before I read your blog, I thought that dear little guy was Andy as a small boy!

Jennifer said...

That bridge is really neat. I am hoping there is a "baby blog" sometime this week! =D

Musicaljean said...

WONDERFUL pictures, Mari! I would have loved to do that hike with you.

What a little "corker", that great-nephew!

And along with everyone else, I eagerly await the announcement!

Sue O said...

Trying to wrap my head around the idea of a two-seater outhouse.

Rebecca said...

Great photos of some interesting sights along your path. (I miss my Michigan hikes SO much.)

The personality of the little guy shines through those two photos....

Enjoy this new day, Mari!

Beautiful week-end (and cute little angel). Today... a baby????

Brooke said...

can you imagine what would necessitate the use of a 2 seater outhouse???
