enjoying fall.

i feel like every year i kind of miss fall.
i wait and wait for the peak of the colors and bam...they're gone.
well not this year.
not on my babes first fall!
we hit the road to taylors falls last week and it felt so good.
i felt a little ridiculous just driving there for a couple of hours since it's an hour drive away.
i told those trees in my head on the way you better be good.
they did not disappoint.
ry and i both agreed it was a much needed little escape from the city.

fall getaway: the u.p.

on our way to the upper peninsula we decided we HAD to camp.
it was getting late in the season for camping but we really wanted Hazel to experience the greatness of camping. 
we found a perfect little campsite in the national forest.
it sure was a chilly one but it was so neat being able to hear the elks calls.
it was the perfect first night under the stars for haze.

the next day we continued onward & stopped at the best little bakery #wewillbeback and enjoyed just being together. 
we made it to our destination... the skoog cabin on lake superior.
