I love Fall!

Laura and BradyIn case you missed my last post, I bombed out on the 40 day fast - but I did accomplish a 26 day fast! I took a break from fasting today but I plan on starting another fast tomorrow. There's only fourteen days until the big 'family portrait day'!

The kids and I went for a bike ride today. The weather couldn't have been nicer. The high today was 76°.

Our city has two colleges - Hendrix (1200 students) and Central Baptist (800 students) and one university - UCA (13,000 students).

We live closest to UCA but we love cruising Hendrix's campus. Our favorite part of the trip is going over the pedestrian bridge that crosses over one of Conway's busiest streets. It's too steep for me to ride all the way up but it's a blast riding downhill!Rachael, Dylan and Brady

My daughter, Rachael, wanted to bring the camera along so we could take some pictures of the fall foliage. The beautiful tree you see in the pictures belongs to a neighbor of ours, just around the corner from where we live.

I love the picture of the kids (clockwise: Rachael-26, Brady-19 mos. and Dylan-15). That one's going on my computer slideshow! :)

I hope y'all are having a great weekend!

I love the pictures. We don't have fall down here. It's just warm all year, with occasional cool spells that always come with rain.

Thanks for sharing!

I'm sure you will get back on track.

Looks like everyone had fun. 26 days is great for the fast. You did a lot better than I would have. It is nothing to be upset about at all.

I love the Autumn as well - I'm a Brit so don't call it fall, gorgeous colours and smells and some fun festivals but not as warm here as it is where you are though. Lovely picture - we have an acer in our garden with bright red leaves in Autumn, but they've fallen off now.

Great blog as well!

Julie - Thank you! I'd love to visit the U.K. in Autumn. I'm sure it's beautiful.
