FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN

AUTUMN

What a wonderful way to spend the first day of Autumn/Fall – on the beach with our grandchildren, Lachlan and Chloe .

Nothing like standing in the water at the beach
Grandad and Grandson

Collecting shells and sea glass

Running along the sand

What can we see?

Watching the tide come in.

How strange to see you speak of Autumn when I am sitting in the middle of a snow storm. Sometimes I forget how big this world is. What a sweet reminder that there are folks on the other side of the world, on another continent, in another country, in a different season, yet so much like me.

Lovely pictures. It's strange to think of you going into autumn while spring is just around the corner here.

Rose Petals & Blooms said...

Finally! Thanks so much for sticking with me Alison! It was worth the wait!

I loved walking with your family through photos...Your children are precious! I adore the "What can we see" photo of your sweet babies!!

Seeing your beautiful pics bring fond memories of my own babies on the beach.. I miss those moments so! Now I will have the pleasure of moments with my grandchildren.. although my oldest grandbaby Hailey, will be 18 in April!! Ackk!! Where does the time go!

I fumbled upon a trick Alison, while attempting to view your blog.. I'm following you in google, so I clicked onto your latest post on my blogger homepage and it worked! No more stressing for me! Thanks oodles for your sweet patience! lol... You're a doll!

Big hugs, I'll be back often to see your updates! It's been a pleasure visiting~

It seemed strange to see your pics of first day of Autumn, when its still snowing here in Massachusets, USA! We just can't seem to get rid of the snow. Hopefully Spring will be here soon.
Enjoyed reading your wedding info! May their wedding day be beautiful!
