“Spring forward; fall back.” Ahhhh, yes, I have my fall back. I *love* the fall and could really have 2 autumn seasons a year. I love the days cooling off and the nights chilling up. The trees changing colors, the sound of crispy leaves under my feet, and the return to cold-weather meals.

And, of course, more walks with the boys.
I really like sharing the neat things we discover on our walks. On one such nature walk not long ago, we met up with a little woodland creature who was astoundingly not afraid of us.

The boys had wanted to go to the chestnut tree, of course. So while there, a tiny squirrel came down from the tree and was close enough for me to take some nice pictures.

from Ryan's hand.
At first I wasn’t sure what to make of this, because this animal truly was not afraid of us at all, and even took things right from Ryan’s hands.
|The boys wanted to keep him!|
At home I had to learn more, of course, so I found out that squirrels in our area actually have two litters a year. One of which is in the late summer.

Which explains this tiny fellow being out on the cusp of autumn, frolicking with my boys. Just take a look at the pictures, and I hope you enjoy. J
