Sunshine Sunday - Autumn and Cheesecake in the Mountains

We went on a family hike this past week.  Autumn in the mountains is amazing.  There are places where it looks like a volcano errupting, with the orange running down the mountainside.  There are these gorgeous patches of bright yellow towards the top.  The pictures don't really even do it justice.  Have I mentioned I love autumn?

Rex did all the hiking himself.  No requests to be picked up.  He was pretty proud of himself.  Here he is flexing his giant muscles at the top of the climb.

We wanted to have a treat at the top, so we packed cheesecake.  Random?  Yes.  Tasty? Oh, yes.

The boys were happy to help out.

This was our view on the way down.  Rex did a lot of running.  I love watching his tiny little body against the massive mountains.

I love the yellow everywhere right now.

I'm also grateful for the temperature.  It makes playing outside perfect.

Chalk on our driveway makes me smile.

This little guy here is saying a lot.  He likes to say "I try."  He's learned to say "ouch" everytime his brother even gets close and my personal favorite is hearing him say, "Costco."  Yeah, we go there a lot.

I hope you've been enjoying the cool crisp weather and the crunchy leaves under your feet.  Thank you for reading my blog.  See you tomorrow.
