Going Away and Coming Home

I went away this weekend to the mountains with girlfriends.
We played games, stayed up late laughing, went out to dinner, ate way too much, and went on a beautiful walk.  Our weather has been perfect lately.   As I walked in the woods, I thanked God for gracing us with such a beautiful season.  I like to think that He created fall to bless us before a long gray winter. 

I woke up Saturday morning to this view.

Even though I enjoyed my time away, I was anxious on Sunday morning to get home to my two favorite guys.  It was nice to know they were excited for me to get home too.  When I walked into the house, Brady was blowing up balloons with the air pump....and these were hanging in the doorways:

Yep, I think they missed me too!

Kerri that first picture is amazing!! Just beautiful - it is frame worthy I think :-D
I know out in the east you guys have a ton more trees than we do out here in the west. I need to come that way in the fall some year!
Your girl get-away sounds so fun - Girls just need that girl time every once in awhile.
I love that your guys hung streamers - that is so stinkin' cute!! I think they definately missed you!
