Lovely Fall Saturday

Today was a perfect day.  The temperature was perfect for playing outside, the sky was perfectly blue, the leaves were fabulous colors and we had a fun-filled family day at home.  It was so nice.  It was the kind of fall day I missed last year while we were in the land of perpetual summer…

The Doc is In
