Let Fall Begin!!!!!

So, by this point we all know how giddy I get during the fall. Well, fall is pretty much, almost, kinda officially starting here in good ole Alexandria. The weather the past week has been breezy, in the high 60s and 70s, and a couple of trees are loosing their leaves ('s mostly the ones that are trying not to die, but still...there are leaves on the ground). I am getting sooooooooo ready to put up my fall decorations tomorrow after cleaning day! Hip hip hooray!!

Brian added to my insanity with a genius idea Saturday morning. He told me we were rolling out of bed early, and heading to Old Town Alexandria to browse the farmer's market. Now, you have to understand, if I'm a crazy person about fall, I'm only slightly less crazy when it comes to Old Town. The houses are revolutionary period, and something about walking the streets just...feels fall-y! Brian and I are both crazy about it. (In fact, we've decided that with our first $5 million we shall buy a fall home in Old Town. Yes, that's the plan. Ha ha ha ha.) So, a farmer's market to kick off autumn in Old Town was perfect!

The peaches are to DIE FOR, and the asian pears...oh my. :) Let the season begin!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And please remember, these pictures were taken early in the morning, before a shower...ha ha ha. Who am I kidding? I'm not photogenic anytime of the day. But that's's practically fall!!!)
This little guy was clinging to Tink when we left saying, "I want to come too! I want to come too!" Sorry little stick man. No such luck.
There was an art festival going on, so strolling through it holding my boy's hand after picking out the fruit was a treat too. :)
Our booty. Well, you know, booty as in "what we got" not as in...well. Anyway.

Useless trivia of the day (that's actually kinda cool): The farmer's market in Old Town is thought to be one of the nation's oldest continually operating farmer's markets. People have been selling their goods there since 1753!
