It's that time of year again....

Fall! I love fall!! I wish we could have cool, 75 degree weather all of the time, but alas I live in New England! It doesn't work that way. The leaves have been changing colors earlier this year since we haven't had a lot of rain. Seeing orange leaves in the middle of August is just strange! We finally got some rain a few days ago, so that was good.

I was away for a week and a half! We took our yearly vacation to Cape Cod. The weather was OK, cloudy and we got one good beach day!

Here is our little beach bum sleeping on the beach.
Dave tried taking her in the ocean, but it was just a little too cold for her. Oh well! We also tried taking her in the pool at the house we were staying at. She wasn't too fond of that. She loves the bath, but the pool was too cool.

Here is a nice picture of Charlotte and I hanging out after going swimming! :) She was much happier being warm in her clothes instead of the pool!

Hanging out with her cousin Josh who she just loved!! :)


I liked this picture of her and I on the beach. This was on on of the cloudy days. :(

After the Cape, Charlotte and I flew out to Michigan for my brother's wedding! I can't believe my little brother is married! Sigh.....I feel old! It was a very nice ceremony. Charlotte slept through the whole thing!! The reception was fun and C did well with all of the new people. The next day though she was a little over stimulated and clingy when we had more family and friends over at my parent's house.

Now we have been back home and getting prepared for the start of the school year. I go back to work on Monday and feeling a little nervous. We did a trial run at daycare this week and Charlotte did great! Dave and I got some time to ourselves for the first time since she was born. We've had a few times where we run out to the store real quick while one of our parents were watching her, but otherwise we haven't had a few hours together. We went shopping for new sneakers, ran some other errands, and enjoyed each other. I was a little freaked out, but I did OK.
I'll update again next week and let you know how our first week went!

Beautiful pictures, Alison. Where did you get that cute tie dye outfit Charlotte is wearing?

Congratulations to your brother. Very nice wedding...

Best wishes for back to work!

It sounds like you had a lovely time on vacation. The pictures are gorgeous and Miss C. is so cute. My girls didn't like the cold water either so I don't blame her not wanting to have fun in the cold. I'm glad the trial run went well at the day care. I hope your return to work goes well. Keep us updated on that.

I'm with Charlotte--I don't like the water if it's even a tad bit cold!!! Love it when it's warm, but not the cold!!

Love the picture of her snuggling you on the beach!!

Don't blame her for not liking the cold water! I'm not a fan of it either! She looks so cute in her flowered headband. Those are adorable on little girls!

Love the sling! I think everyone should use them...
