Fall Family Photo Shoot

Shortly after Ava turned one, we had a photo shoot done with Sally Salerno Photography. I love how they turned out (even though she's already changed so much since these were taken!).

I've been super slack about getting pictures actually printed and hung in our house, so I'm determined to get some of these framed and put up. And I purchased a Groupon a while back for a canvas print, so I'm going to get that done of the wagon shot (my favorite!) to hang above our mantle.

And because someone usually asks, here are the sources for Ava's outfits:

Pants & Top: Cherokee brand from Target (link to jeggings)
Hairband: Baby Birdie Boutique (I sent her a pic of the Target outfit and she made it custom to match, I highly recommend her!)
Denim monogrammed dress: Rags Land
Aqua ruffles outfit and pearls: from photographer
Sand dollar bishop dress: Southern Tots

October: Pumpkin Patch, State Fair, and Halloween

We had an awesome October that started with a trip to the pumpkin patch, included a few trips home, an anniversary trip to Asheville for Lee and I, and a visit to the State Fair, and ended with a really fun Halloween. And somewhere in there, Ava started walking, so I'd call it a pretty successful month.

First up, the pumpkin patch. We went to Green Acres farm in Cary and even though the weather was more like summer than fall we had a good time.

Ava got to pet a rabbit:

And swing:

And go on a hay ride:

And see cows and goats:

And of course, pick out pumpkins:

A few weekends later we hit up the State Fair.

There were delicious cookies:

And huge pumpkins:

And baby calves nursing:

And cute children showing ewes:

And those Click It or Ticket things from when I was a kid:

And watching the Agricadabra magic show from daddy's shoulders:

And fair naps:

While mama and dada ate ribbon fries!

We also got Ava's silhouette hand-cut in the Village of Yesteryear:

Ava said "moo" to all of the cows, and all-in-all it was a pretty awesome day.

And of course, the cherry on top of October was Halloween. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the cutest pig in America:

She even learned the sound effects to go with her costume.

Ava's daycare had a Halloween parade that was fairly adorable.

Then we went trick or treating with our neighbors.

She was so happy to sit in her wagon and clutch her pieces of candy:

It was such a fun night (and month). Ava's at a really fun age right now and we're enjoying getting to see her personality blossom and seeing her learn and show off something new every day. I can't wait to see what she's like at Christmas :)
