Hey! How are ya'll doing?
I hope you had a great October, mine was pretty cool.
(many of these following pictures I didn't actually post on my Instagram, so you're getting exclusives 😛)
We drove up to NY to see some relatives; a great aunt, and some of my dad's cousins and their kids. The mountains were cool, and fall colors were coming out.
Our great aunt was super nice, and she had a big old dog who looooved attention, (her name was lexie) a skittish cat, and really skittish cat. I've never met a black cat that wasn't skittish.
There was this guy who lived about 10 minutes away, and he had set up like, 100 plastic skeletons in his yard, a whole army marching towards his house. I didn't take many pictures, because it was dark and the lighting was terrible.
There were like, 6-8 skeletons walking each T-rex, and maybe you can see in the back, a small calvary of skeleton horses
There were also six normal skeletons starting to climb up the walls of his house, and one looking right in a window... great way to scare your socks off every morning.😂
There were about a dozen of these tree things defending the house, they were made out of what felt like styrofoam, paper mache, and paint.
And dragons! poor little things!! I shall free you!!!
We went on a walk with the dog to a park, and it was a really cool park, but I don't have any pictures of it, except for Ivy using the giant see-saw as a surfboard.😛
We also went to a really cool river.
(that's Ivy's hand, in case you were wondering. My hands still have nail polish)
The current was scary fast, but we waded up stream through it anyway, because why not.😁
And since we were way out in the country, there were the most beautiful stars! It reminded me of Clara's star shoot
except she took those photos around midnight, and the stars I were watching came out around 9pm. They were so beautiful, I remembered why I love stars.✨
Our next stop was Niagara falls for a few hours. It was AWESOME.
There were so many rainbows! And they were so bright and easy to photograph!
It's a face😄
uhhg I wish I could fly.
AND THE PRETTIEST RAINBOW YET whiiiich has the worst picture. But it looked much more vibrant irl.
I really like this one. The water matches the clouds. :)
We also paid to get cheap sandals and pink plastic ponchos and go on this board walk at the bottom of the falls. We got really wet, and it was a lot of fun.
My brother had a Civil Air Patrol weekend thing to go to, (which is why we went on this trip in the first place) so we stayed in a cabin in the mountains while he did that.
They had the prettiest tea cups😍
And if a tea cup and a mug had a baby, it would look like this.
My dad made a fire, and I got to admire the stars again.
The couple who owned the cabin were out of town, and Daisy was ridiculously happy that we got to take care of their dogs. The dachshund is hershey, and the chihuahua is cricket.
99% of my attempts to photograph hershey turned out like this.
BUT I FINALLY GOT ONE.
I kept calling this guy tater tot. He was not amused.
I should have taken more pictures of the giant stump that they had.
There were also three horses next door, and despite all out attempts to get their attention, they stubbornly ignored us.
I legit took these pictures halloween afternoon. But it was raining the day before that, so I have an excuse for procrastinating, right?
They're so cute😍
Have a great day everybody, and enjoy the cooler weather coming up!
