Apples, and Pumpkins, and Perks…Oh My!

22 Oct

Fall is officially here people.

And let me tell you…those of us who are 25 weeks pregnant are welcoming the crispy, cooler days with OPEN ARMS.

And bless Daddy Perks’ heart…I think he’s mentally preparing himself for a LONG winter, as we battle over the thermostat.  If I had it my way…we wouldn’t turn the heat on. Like ever. Or at least not until we have to have worry about the pipes freezing and bursting.  And my poor hubby-well, it’s only October-and for the most part we’re still seeing temperatures reach the 60’s and 70’s these days-and he’s already wearing flannel pants and thermal shirts to bed.

It’s gonna be a LONG winter for one of us.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We must not speak of winter yet.

Because right now we are knee deep in the glorious season of colors that fall brings.

If you can’t find the perks in the vibrant oranges, reds, and yellows that swallow up the trees these days…then I suggest you turn down the radio, get off Facebook, and start appreciating the wonderful gift that mother nature grants us every year at this time.

At least that’s what we’ve been doing lately…and after multiple trips to pick apples and pumpkins this season, I must say-the carmel apples, homemade pumpkin bread & apple crisp, and fresh apple cider have been pretty mouth watering. But none of them have been quite as DE-LICIOUS as the memories we’ve been making as we watch our little man soak in the perks of fall…

That’s right Henry…Fall happens every. single. year. Soak it in, my friend.

Just a couple of boys…in search for the perfect pumpkin.

Just like his daddy…go big, or go home.

He couldn’t get enough of the pumpkin picking…

And we couldn’t get enough of him…

Just pure sweetness.

And as if the pumpkins weren’t enough…

Is this for real Mom?

Oh yes sweet boy. You can pick them.

And eat them too.

We also helped you channel your inner-John Deere.

Here’s to hoping you and yours are soaking in all the perks of this glorious season.

Or at least stuffing your face with a few pumpkin doughnuts.


The Perks
