Cold Start, Warm Finish

Fall is doing its best to take over our weather here with some cool days and cold mornings. Our highs were in the mid 50’s Sunday and just crossed into the 60’s on Monday, but the mornings were the real story with a little frost scattered in some areas. The cold start to the day is really nice, though we may seek out a little sunshine for early naps.

Cold start to the day, so the sun was very popular for morning naps.

With barely a cloud in the sky, the afternoon was gorgeous. And, of course, perfect weather can only mean one thing.

Walking time - let's go.

Walking time – let’s go!

So off we went on a family walk around the neighborhood. With a lull between the summer tourist season and the fall, leaf-looking season, we had things to ourselves – perfect as far as we are concerned.

What a perfect day

What a perfect day!

P.S. – No fear. The senior squad was walking with us as well. The pictures just happened to capture the juniors.

      Maybe Typhoon is a “Normal Walking Dog” now. 🙂

    Mom sez: Frankie and Typhoon look like a pair of bookends in the photo, just steppin’ right out there. Cheoah kind of doing her own thing on the side. Looks like a beautiful day for a walk.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
