I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween and they leaves are changing. Thankfully it hasn’t been too cold. I hope we don’t have snow on Halloween like we did last year. It was miserable and I ended up wearing socks. I hate socks but my feet were purple. One of my favorite things to do is look at the leaves changing. I love all the bright colors. Who doesn’t love jumping in a big pile of leaves? Its lots of fun. When I see piles of leaves, it reminds me of being at my grandparent’s house after my grandpa raked the leaves and we would jump in them and make leaf angels. A few years ago I went to New Hampshire in the fall. The leaves were pretty amazing from what we saw. We had talked about doing a drive to look at the leaves but with Hurricane Sandy closing in, we had to get supplies. So instead of going and seeing leaves, we had to scour Wal-mart for bottles of water. The shelves were pretty much empty. Everyone beat us to the store. Thankfully we weren’t hit badly at all. I don’t even remember if it rained. The power was out but we made the best of it. My flight was cancelled too, that was stressful to wonder if I was going to get home in time for Halloween. I ended up getting a flight in the afternoon and all was well. I would love to go to New England again in the fall to see the leaves. I wrote an article about Fall Foliage in Maryland in hopes to take Noah to Washington D.C. in the fall someday. He loves nature and history. He already asked to go to the Smithsonian sometime. When we lived in Florida we didn’t have real seasons so it’s nice to have the leave changing again.
