Fall Adventures



I feel like we’re in the middle of a pretty magical age right now with our kids. Of course each stage/age has its rewards and challenges, but at the moment we are in our groove. The girls are pretty much the most fun ever. Rowan is constantly cracking us up and Finley has really developed a little personality. Plus, she just kills us with her cuteness. I long the for the weekends when we get to spend extended time all together. The weeks can be long and tiresome sometimes but the weekends are always a breath of fresh air. We try to get out as much as possible. Living in upstate NY we love having the Adirondacks close by. Spending time in Lake George & Bolton Landing is awesome. What beautiful towns!

I want to remember that on this day…
1. Rowan walked the entire hike. Almost 2 miles all by herself! (There may have been some bribing with nerds at the end).
2. Rowan kept calling the day “our adventure”.
3. Eating a calm, peaceful lunch on the outside patio in Bolton Landing
4. Finley’s cute face peeking out over the side of the backpack
5. Kids sleeping on the way home meant good conversation and music with Kev in the car.
6. The smells, sounds and crisp air of a beautiful fall day.

For those that are asking- Rowan’s boots are the Palladium Pampa Hi Leather from Tea Collection (you can also find more sizes here)

















  1. I need to know where to find Rowan’s hiking boots! Looking for something just like that for Adair!

    Jen, your plaid shirt is perfect for fall weekends! Where did you find it?

  10. Beautiful photos! It looks like it was a fantastic day. We’ve made it a goal as a family to go hiking a bit more. We live in the midwest so there is nothing too exciting to explore around here but there are a few forest preserves that delight the kids & it’s just great being outside. Way to go Rowan for walking the whole the way – impressive!

  11. Looks like a lovely day!!

  12. i loved going on little adventures like this when i was little – and actually still do.
    there is nothing better than walking through all the fallen leaves at this time of the year.

    beautiful pictures by the way.

  13. Love everything about this post …and nothing is better than when you finally get into that groove!!

  25. so cute! i love how big your girls are getting!

  26. Gorgeous family photos! aren’t fall walks the BEST?!

  27. My first thought was ‘she looks amazing!’. Must be all those miles you are running ;-). I’m 6 months post partum and just struggling to lose those last few pounds…hopefully they will fall off soon although i probably need to run a few more miles.
