Usually when I stop to take pictures of these llamas, they look up but I guess they must have been pretty hungry because they didn't even glance at me!

I drive by this old barn every day and I love it. I've been trying to figure out a way to take a picture of it without actually trespassing because it sits back aways from the road. I pulled over today and tried to get and this is what I came up with...I kind of like how the vines look in the foreground. I'll keep trying!

I liked the way the vines were growing over this fence.

When i pulled over to take a picture of this cow, he/she walked right over and then when I put the camera down, she walked away! Like she was saying, "well if that's all you wanted!"

As the weather gets colder, the days start later. Whereas I used to leave well after the sun came up, now I'm halfway to work still in the dark! This is what the sun looked like coming through the trees this morning.

On the way to my mom's today, one of the towns I drove through had a scarecrow contest set up on the green so I stopped to check it out! This one is for a local daycare and I thought it was pretty cute! You can't really see but they all have crowns on!

We are officially back on-line and I'm trying to get back into the swing of things!

Today was me and Michael's 12th wedding anniversary and we celebrated by going to a corn maze with Tucker and then dinner later! We were determined to finish this year but after two hours we had only found 14/16 so he gave up! It was a lot of fun, though and a gorgeous fall day!

Tonight we went to Cruise Night at one of the local beaches. Basically they line up the classic cars and you walk around and check them out! They play music from the 50s and 60s and it's a lot of fun! (Also parking is FREE!!) We might go in the future just to play on the beach!

The residents love to fill the bird feeders in the courtyard. By the time I come in at 7:30 every morning, this chubby little rascal has flipped the feeder and is enjoying a nice breakfast. Today I actually got a picture of him-caught!

For some reason, I'm fascinated with stormy skies this summer. This is what the sky looked like tonight on the way home, as usual, it didn't amount to anything1

I had a dentist appointment this morning and then stopped to get a snadwich for lunch. This is the back of the Windham Town Hall. I thought it looked intersting from this angle.

When we left Tucker's swim class tonight, the sky looked pretty threatening! Unfortuantely it didn't amount to anything and I think it's more humid now (if that's even possible!)
