Fall in Oklahoma is quite wonderful.

Warm days, cool nights. The afternoons smell like warm leaves. The nights are chilly, so you can bundle up in a warm blanket as you sleep and feel your cold cheeks outside the covers.

The bugs (mostly) die, and it’s actually pleasant to be outside.

The leaves turn goldens and browns. The grasses bloom and grow puffy tops.

We’re right on the edge of a large national forest, and we don’t go there often enough. But today we managed to meet some friends there for a delightful afternoon walk. The kids had a ball running up the trails, picking up sticks and throwing rocks.

And it was good to chat with friends who we don’t get to see often enough.

It was wonderful and refreshing.

And then on the way home the baby threw up all over her car seat and me, of course.
Too much perfection and we couldn’t grow as people, right?
