So Long Sweet Summer

As the days get shorter, the color of the sky turns to a deep, rich blue. This makes for picture taking at the beach even more exciting! Snapping pictures has become quite the obsession of mine over the past few months. I love being able to use this gorgeous light to catch some incredible memories. After sorting through the 122 that I took tonight at the beach, I came up with these 4 shots that make me smile.

I have a lot of pictures of him walking away from me!
It took me 5 minutes or so of fiddling with the settings on my camera to finally capture this shot!
Little birdie feet.
Probably one of my favorites = )

Yesterday, Escher discovered puddles for the first time! We explored the neighborhood after the rain stopped and found a few good (and messy) puddles for Escher to splash around in.

I am really enjoying finding "big kid" stuff to do with Escher, now that he is walking. I feel like it opened up a whole new world of possibilities! We walk to the beach, play at the park, go "exploring" around the neighborhood. It really is just a fun age, and an excellent time of year to explore the world outside. The weather has been so gorgeous here! A beach girl at heart, I am so sad to see summer leave us. I am desperately clinging on to the last rays of summer sun and grudgingly pulling out my long pants and ugh, shoes too. I am loving open windows, cool breezes and excellent sleeping weather at night though!

What are your favorite things about fall?
