It's FALL!

I’m my 7+ years of living in the Bay Area I’ve found that Northern California is usually a month or two behind the rest of the country when it comes to Fall. As much as I would love to join my friends in other states in dressing in sweaters and leggings, drinking hot Fall beverages and taking pictures amid the gorgeous changing leaves, I can’t. It’s still in the mid 80s here in CA, very few of the leaves have turned or will turn for at least another month, and to be honest I tried wearing a sweater and leggings the other day on a zoo trip and it didn’t go well. By the end of the day I was soaked with sweat, and the minute I got home I raced to my room to change into shorts and a tank top… It was gross and definitely did not meet my idyllic Fall vision.

Last week though I was determined to get some “Fall” shots and we managed to find a couple fun places with some golden fall vibes and there were actually some leaves that had turned!! Yeah California!

Learning to ride

So a few weeks ago, D-man learned to ride a bike! Let me preface this by saying that he’s 3 1/2, he has a balance bike, but had no interest whatsoever in a bike with pedals. Then one day, he just decided to go for it. He told me he was going to ride his big boy bike. No training wheels, no nothing. No joke, it took him less than 10min and he was riding all by himself! He even learned how to start and stop! Now I don’t know about anyone else but I did NOT learn to ride a bike at 3, and I definitely did not learn to ride in 1 day. So obviously, as a proud mama, I immediately jumped to the conclusion that my child was some kind of bike riding prodigy. Luckily for me I have family members with the power of google at their fingertips and I was assured that he was completely normal for his age.... Apparently kids today learn to ride bikes at 3… Who knew? So yeah, I’m still his proud Mama and I had to post a few from his latest milestone :-)

Man these two were a blast and so full of energy.  I think the shoot ended up being more of a fun play date for all of us.  They are the perfect blend of cute, wild, imaginative, hilarious and fun!
