Another camping trip (the last of the season) to Devil's lake Wisconsin was, again, filled with great weather beautiful scenery!
I know that there are studies that show nature's positive effects on the brain. I don't need science to prove that.
Cole got to attend his first Bears football game with Rich! It was a good game, but they came up short.
We had a great visit from my Aunt Beth from North Carolina! An entire weekend of gatherings and fun!
|Playing a game. We were really usually much more lively than this!|
|Beth and the kids|
|Cole - as Kylo Ren|
|Will - as a SWAT team guy with his buds|
|Pumpkin Patch! We got all the necessities: pumpkins, kettle corn, cider and apple cider donuts!|
Lastly (and a slight bleed into November), THE CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES!!!!! This has been surreal and so joyful! It is a fantastic departure from the gloomy election time that we are currently in and has simply been a great reminder of sportsmanship, family tradition, and history! We have bought the gear. We have had a mini-party to watch the parade and rally. Oh - and this is the first year we all went together as a family to a game! But also, in this very month Rich and I got to visit Wrigley through Advocate and have dinner on the field, a tour, and just plain hang out ON THE FIELD! Having this be the year makes this memory even sweeter!
And that does it for October. It was a great month. Bring on November, food, celebrations, and the chance of snow!
