Fall day at the farmhouse

Last weekend was such perfect weather that Mama, Daddy and I decided to take a day trip to the farmhouse. I wanted to invite a friend, but Mama said it was a family day. Wish Inky was here...

Anyway, we drove down and stopped for lunch at my favorite spot, Little Acorn. I got a hamburger, fries, and root beer, which was a perfect start to the day. Once we got to the farmhouse it was so pretty! The sky was pure blue and almost all the leaves were either yellow, red or orange. We took a walk and visited the horses and saw some hawks.

Then after awhile we decided to take a drive and spotted a great horned owl in Spring City!!!! I wasn't even in my lucky owl shirt, but Mama spotted him, and he was so cute and big! I love owls so much, they are my favorite.

We took lots of photos, visited the goats down the road and headed home after picking pears and playing with Zoey, the neighbor dog. I am so happy I went down there, it was a really fun day!

ANOTHER National Park to check off the list!

Mama, Daddy and I went to Rocky Mountain National Park last weekend! We flew to Colorado for one of Mama's friend's weddings and were there long enough to see a little bit of Rocky Mountain National Park, but we weren't there long enough for me to get a Jr. Ranger badge, so I'll have to go back!

Guess what we saw? Tons and tons of elk! It was awesome. At one point we even saw a big boy elk chase away another boy. It is easy to tell which ones are boys and girls because the boys have HUGE antlers!

Guess what else? There was already snow on the ground in a lot of places! I was glad to have my hoodie, because it was quite chilly.

Here are my favorite photos, and I've been updating my National Park photo album, so make sure to see it!

Isn't it pretty? It looks a little bit like Banff and Jasper, not not quite.
The sky is blue, for now... It snowed later in the day!
Here is some snow in the shade. Brrr...
