you start measuring time by which baby you were pregnant with or which baby you just had.
I found myself doing this several times over the past few weeks and just had to chuckle at myself.

My mom's sister Pat came for a visit at the beginning of the week. We were all so excited to see her! We took her to Dauset Trails and it turned out to be a beautiful day and perfect weather. The leaves were all still so pretty and we all had a great time. We started out with a picnic lunch by the lake.
Ben on the long bridge over the lake.
Checking out the turtles and fish.
Anna and Ellie. Poor Ellie had a terrible ear infection, but hardly complained. She's a trooper.
An owl, Ben's favorite.
Paul got very close to this huge buffalo for a picture.
Aunt Pat and Ben checking out the chickens.
What is it about little boys and rocks? They both wanted to load their pockets up and take them home.
He also wanted to throw them at his brother!
A nice pic, except for uncooperative Ben who was missing his nap at this point.
Father and Daughters
After Dauset Trails we headed to Indian Springs State Park.
The kids couldn't wait to get walk in this cold, cold water.
Of course you know what happened. It took Sam less than a minute to slip in and it took Ben even less time than that before he was soaked.
Last week, the leaves were so beautiful around where we live so I decided to take my camera on my daily afternoon walk. Of course, this little girl was the best view on the entire walk.
Beautiful colors this year.
But none compare to the blueness of her eyes!
So cute and so tired by the time we got home.
