Welcome friends,
Another week down and Friday again already?! I knew the time between Labor Day and Halloween would fly by. We are stocked with candy and making the last mad dash for costumes, as usual. How about you? 

This week's photos are all of our girl Bella. For the past few weeks I have been struggling to come to terms with the fact that she is very sick. I knew something wasn't right, and I took her to the vet a couple of weeks ago, which confirmed my fears. She has osteosarcoma. She was born in 2008, and has been with us since she was just a couple of months old. She is family. We lost a Dane to the same cancer before we had Bella, and it absolutely broke my heart in pieces. I know Bella has lived a good life. She has been well loved and has enjoyed many healthy years for a Dane. Many more than our Max did - he was only 6. I am so grateful for all of the time we have enjoyed with her. But I am dreading what lies ahead.

I took some time this week to take a few portraits of her, while she still feels well enough to enjoy her favorite pass time - sunning herself in the back yard. She loves to just lie out in the yard, and listen to the birds. And occasionally, bark at the wind, just so it knows who's boss.

Happy Friday to you! How was your week? 
We've been busy with the usual activities. We did have a little field trip on Monday. Our Girl Scout troop headed out for some seasonal fun - though, at 81 degrees, it felt more like summer than fall. 
We went on a hayride and toured a small local farm. We selected pumpkins and a few gourds from the pumpkin patch, then ventured into the corn maze. It was a beautiful sunny day, with blue skies and white puffy clouds hanging over us. I didn't take my DSLR, but my iPhone was put to good use capturing the fun:

Happy weekend friends! This week was another hectic one. Work is piling on and keeping up with the kids' activities, and home obligations is a full time job. I am completely exhausted.  No rest for the wicked though, I have a 9 hour wedding tomorrow. 

Last weekend we enjoyed a visit with my Dad and Stepmom. We ventured north to a new Revolutionary War museum in Yorktown. We all really enjoyed the trip! The museum was fantastic and full of interesting exhibits. We watched an immersive film, with a surround screen and sound, plus special effects like the seats shaking when canons went off and smoke creeping in around us. It was pretty cool!

The kids really loved the working colonial farm as well. It was a very hands-on experience, and our oldest even got to participate in the canon firing demonstration. All in all it was a great and memorable day.  If you ever have an opportunity to visit, I highly recommend it. I only took my phone along so all pics are iPhone:

Happy Friday! I am sorry this post is terribly late, but I figured better late than never. I shot a wedding yesterday, and today we had some last minute plans with family who came into town, so my to do list is askew.

This week's photos include a post-co-op jaunt to a tasty donut shop we've been wanting to try for a couple of years. They were delicious! Also, picking up my teens from book club and an exhausted sunset drive home post-wedding. What have you been up to this week?

Thanks for stopping in! Link up your posts below and have a great weekend!
