Fun Fall Afternoon

Since Brody decided against an afternoon nap at his normal time, we went to the park and enjoyed the beautiful day. I grabbed a late lunch at Chick-Fil-A (my favorite) and we headed to the park.

When we got there, I unbuckled Brody but left him in his car seat and went around to the back of my car to get out the stroller. I sat my CFA sack in the backseat by Brody's car seat so that I could grab it all at once. When I walked back to get Brody out of the car about 10 seconds later, he had gotten the sack and was eating my fries! It was hilarious!
I brought a blanket so I put it out and we sat on it to eat. I brought some snacks for Brody but he was pretty set on just eating my fries. I don't think I got a single one!
He needed a little bit of my sweet tea to wash them down. Yes, I let my child have sweet tea...don't judge! Haha! :)
We had a pretty view of the lake while we ate.
After we finished our snack, we went walking on the trail. It was so nice outside and their were lots of people walking and riding their bikes. I think Brody liked watching all of them. He passed out in the car on the way home...thankfully!

Tomorrow afternoon, we are having our fall pics taken. This is the clothes combo I am thinking. All of us will wear dark jeans, too. What do you think??

I just love reading your fun stories, from Brody playing in the toilet to picnics! Always fun! I love the outfit choices!! I can't wait to see the pics!

Awwwhhh I can't wait to see your pictures. I know they will be adorable.

Ashley said...

Love him!!! He is so adorable! ;)

Can't wait to see pics!!

Lilly, Matt, and Sara said...

Haha! Brody knows what he wants--there is nothing wrong with that. I gave Lilly sweet tea when we were out one day (the real stuff with sugar and caffeine and all). She loved it and downed two sippy cups full. OH.MY.GOSH--she was all jacked up and running crazy until 11:00 p.m. Her bedtime is at 8:00!! She was hilarious. It was totally our fault because before that she had NEVER (not even in the womb or in breast milk) had caffeine. Now, I just give her occasional sips to try to break her in easily.

As for the outfits, they are cute and will make great pics! Really, though, with little man-you know they are going to be good!

Love your blog :)
We just did our family photos a few weeks ago and I wore a sweater in the exact same color (purple). I love the way it turned out in the pictures. I like a mix of colors for photos instead of everyone wearing exactly the same thing. But that's just my opinion :) I'm sure your pictures will turn out great....you're a beautiful family.

Karen said...

What a wonderful day you had with Brody! I can not get over how beautiful your fall weather still is. Thank you so much for your comments on my blog. I am so glad to hear that you like the name Jillian, it is a beautiful name. Hopefully you will have a little girl next so you can use it!! :) Take care.

I found your blog through my friend Kristy. I love reading about Brody since he is just a bit older than my son. Love the outfit choices! Once I let my son have just a taste of sweet tea too....I better not let it happen again...he may become addicted like me!
