Fall in the ‘burbs, a photo journey

12 10 2009

End of last week, the local whoever-is-in-charge-of-such-things-probably-the-tourism-board determined that we are in PEAK FOLIAGE TIME.
Leafers* unite!!!
In an effort to drown our woes about the WORST football game ever, we took a walk through the park behind our house.

So many colors!

So many colors!

And so rich!

And so rich!

There were flower still in bloom

The plus side of having ball diamonds in your backyard?
Free balls for your ball-eating dog.

Bailey! Wheres the ball?!

"Bailey! Where's the ball?!"

Seriously.
We were near the tree line and told her to find a ball. And she did. FOUR TIMES.
Woot! Four less balls we have to buy!

To the victor comes the spoils

I dont understand how she runs without paws on the ground

OMG. Totally stinky Beans.

OMG. Totally Stinky Beans.

We popped her in the tub as soon as we got back to the house and I was pretty sure that she rolled in something dead.

She hated this.

She hated this.

Bailey was NOT happy to go across the suspension bridge at the park, but, she had to get the ball, so she put on her brave face.
Plus, I got to play in the jungle gym tunnel!
Just after this shot, her muddy tail whacked my len; thank goodness I had a filter on!

Thanks! Despite all the gross mud, we really did have a nice time.

I love the colors. The little town I live in now only goes from green to yellow to dirt.
I miss the metroparks where I used to live. It really is wonderful and smells so awesome.
Bailey…such a good girl.
