Well it is 'Officially' Fall and 'Officially' Friday - today's theme is Summer Memories which is a fun theme but sort of sad at the same time ... the leaves are falling continuously in our yard, and with a small forest behind our house we usually have about 12 bags of leaves at the end of the leaf dropping. We had a wonderful summer though so I posted a TON of photos (sorry) and just like everything else - things must come to an end. I do truly enjoy fall though but I have to admit ... standing at the bus stop when it is already only 40 outside is a shock to your system and your mind. We are doing some yard work this weekend to prepare for the construction to start on the house next week so we will be busy cleaning up and cutting back the hostas and such ... not to mention a certain somebody wants to go out and shop for a Halloween Costume. So we are planning a fun weekend. Our neighbors are also having a Harvest Fest Sunday at their house. We will pick apples from their trees and make lots of apple treats, cook hotdogs and smores by a bonfire and just enjoy the crisp cool air. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I am only 7 posts away from 100 already! Whoo-Hoo! Stop by Sarah's site to see lots more Summer Memories ...

Love ~ The Clark Family ~ Rebekah, Jason, Jaden & Baby#2 too!

I love fall, but am not ready for it to be 40 out! If it's 40 out it is winter here in CA!! That Harvest party at your neighbors sounds so fun! What does Jaden want to be for Halloween? Have a great weekend (:

Jaden has a terrific smile. Looks like you had a great Summer. I remember seeing some of those pics the first time around. I love the one of the girls in the tree. I hope you're feeling well and that Baby Charlotte isn't kicking you throught the night!! (Do they do that? I've not carried one in my body before!)

Peace and Hugs,
