Happy fall :)

Ok, I’ll admit it, I do like fall. I love the colors, the break from the crazy heat, bonfires and definitely pumpkin flavored everything! What I don’t like is what comes after fall! So we’re trying to enjoy the last bit of decent weather, especially this weekend with 80 degrees and lots of sun. 🙂 My husband and I went for a drive to look at the changing leaves and hit up a War of 1812 fall festival yesterday, and I got some great photos.

Love the gold color of the beans

 

Taken from the top of a reservoir, any time of year it's a cool view

 

With our "Indian Summer" going on, the wildflowers are blooming again

 

I don't know what kind of tree this is, but they are everywhere

 

 

Lots of this going on right now in Indiana

 

I like the bright yellow trees

 

This is kind of a brag photo - I'm kind of proud of this one 🙂 These are up at a little church in my town.

I need a vacation.

To somewhere warm and tropical. It’s getting colder here and I don’t think I’m ready for that, because before we know it, we’ll have a foot of snow on the ground!…Anyway, I’ll just look at old photos I took in Hawaii 3 years ago.

My kiddos :)

I wanted to post some photos of my 2 dogs. I got a few good shots of them, which is really hard to do! And since I found some new Photoshop actions this week, I wanted to try them out. Love them!

 

Tinker - I can never get her to sit long enough to take a photo!

 

Maya - added a texture to a photo for the first time in Photoshop too!

 

Pretty girrrrrrl

Spent a day at the Fort Wayne zoo with my sister this week….here are some of my favorite shots:

Gettysburg, PA

I haven’t posted anything in QUITE a while, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have anything to show you! Earlier this month, my husband and I took a short trip to Gettysburg, PA for the anniversary of the battle. Lots of historical places, shops, hot weather, ghost hunting, and driving. But it was fun. 🙂 We will be going back in a couple years because we are history dorks and like that kind of stuff! And I liked the town and all of the little shops in it. We also stayed at the best B&B ever in Hanover so that was another nice perk for our trip. Here’s some pictures I took of the battlefield and reenactors and around town.
