A nearby town has an annual scarecrow parade - local shops and companies decorate scarecrows and line them up on Main Street each fall. I went once when S was about 18 months old and have had the intention to go back each year since. This year was the first time we actually made it back there. Twice! I went with little monkey S for playgroup and then I took all the kids this Saturday. It was not as impressive as I remembered but we had a wonderful time regardless. Here's an overload of pictures from our trip out there:
And just for fun...Who allowed S to grow up so quickly?!?
One of my favorite fall activities in New England is apple picking. I haven't been able to find a day when we could all go together this year, but baby S and I went a few weeks ago for playgroup and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. S especially enjoyed sampling apples -- several of the ones that made it home had little tiny toothmarks in them, which I at least hope are hers...:)
