My obsession for fall is unhealthy.  I actually have a little anxiety every morning when I wake up and more of the leaves have fallen. I'm afraid I haven't taken enough pictures and we haven't played outside in the leaves enough and I haven't been able to see them as much as I wanted.  So- here comes a blogging frenzy.  I've taken a lot of pictures this past weekend.

Last week we spent some time at the park to play (take pictures).

Here's our little hoarder in the making. He is more interested in having EVERY toy in his hands at once than he actually is with playing with them. I was getting all worried about his grabbing/hoarding until Kent reminded me that Zeb did the very same thing at this age and then outgrew it. I don't think that I have outgrown this phase yet.
Swan Creek Park will always hold a place in my heart.  I wouldn't mind having my ashes scattered here.  Or at least a water fountain with my name on it.  This place is beautiful and full of the most wonderful toledoans.
 
Plus- it has some playgrounds and the kids love to play here.

We took a walk along the less traveled side of the park (my favorite) and these two got VERY angry with each other. Ellie and zeb are definite frenemies. Mostly friends with a little bit of enemy.  The two of them refused to speak to each other and sat pouting for quite some time.




Ellie's mom, Alison, took this one and I love it.  This is zeb's favorite facial expression.

 and this is my very favorite tree in the whole park. It's colors are amazing.
 I'm so glad that it's still fall.  I need it for just a few more weeks.

I totally know what you mean. Sometimes I think that if it always looked like this would I still love it as much as I do... I think I would. I hate seeing the leaves go, Toledo really is SO pretty this time of year and the weather out side is just that much better! Great pics!

Thanks for reminding me just how much it sucks to be in Vegas this time of year. :) Beautiful pictures.

Great pictures! I would possibly consider running a 1/2 marathon if I could run through country that pretty! I can see why you obsess about Fall! :)

they really are fenemies. Ellie just loves Zeb, but yet they have their moments. I love fall in Ohio too. Good thing because we may get one more.
