How many "F" words can you drop in a weekend?!

For when there's a lack of words or cohesive thoughts...there's pictures.

I'm exhausted
Our weekend was filled with family, friends, football and fun. 
And the nights....they were full of sleepless hours, and cries from a restless toddler.

As peaceful and cute as the little one is in each picture, he really was a big terror this weekend. I'm starting to wonder if this is some evil growth spurt. 
We haven't had a full nights sleep in days. Not a single one of us. 
Our house is "cozy", so when little man decides to scream for endless hours we all hear it and all suffer through it. We've tried rocking, we've tried shhh-pat, diaper changes and Motrin. Lullabies and books. None of it works. The only solution to his our restless nights is -time.

disclaimer: sleep deprived blogger

Now, back to the fun stuff.  all the "F" words.  

family.  friends.  fall weather fun.  and football.

Lance's team took home the win this weekend! 
Family and friends came out for this early morning game, and they were not disappointed. Lance plays defensive end tackle and tackle he did! Of course, I was running after Landon so I missed what was said to be an unbelievable tackle but I heard the cheers and could tell all were impressed with Lance's reaction time and skill! His team is back on track with 5 wins and 1 lost.

We also took advantage of a nearby city, really -it's a place to escape to. 
Charlettsville, VA sits in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is an ideal get-away this time of the year. We picked Carter's Mountain Orchid for our destination. And apple picking is what we did! Along with eating de-lish Apple Cider Donughts :), carters mountain

*Having a tall hubby proved very useful at the orchid. 

Seems we're a little late to the fun of picking apples and the only ones left where out of reach, except for Lucas's reach. No wonder every other family came equipped with an apple picker?!

If you get the chance to take a break from your city's buzz, the mountains is where to go this time of year. 
We were lucky to take in the views of the Blue Ridge mountains and the Shenandoah....and get one family pic before little man took off running for his next apple.

Have you planned a fall get away to enjoy some open spaces and mountain air?
Did your favorite teams win this weekend? I'd love to hear about it!

Pin It!

What a fun weekend and it looks beautiful there! Apple picking was a great idea too:) The perfect fall activity! I would love a fall getaway with my hubby before the baby gets here but our schedule just won't seem to cooperate with that wish! Thanks for linking up with Mommy Moments today:)

It was beautitul, I'm already planning another trip back before the weather changes too much. Since you can't "get away" right now, why not dress the patio table in linens & best dishes, enjoy a nice dinner out back?! Our own porch views are some of the best!
