Fall is my favorite season in Chicago! Last week, my friend Khania and I drove out to the Morton Arboretum with our kids to see the pretty colors. It was a beautiful day, with temperatures in the 70s (our October was SO nice and moderate in temps).
We went on two driving loops through the pretty wooded area -
I was driving, but kept jumping out to take pictures of the pretty foliage.
We were having fun, driving along, talking, enjoying the scenery… when a security car drove up behind us and honked at me.
That’s right, I was pulled over by the security man. For driving 32 miles an hour :)
I was very apologetic and said I would drive slower. The security guy said the road was full of wet leaves and he didn’t want us to slide off the road with our kids in the car and hit a tree.
I apologized and we were on our way, going 25 miles an hour this time. I think you had to be there, but it was pretty funny. This security guy meant business. I pulled over soon after that so that he would stop following us (I took a few more pictures) and that was the last we saw of Mr. Security.
After the driving loops, we parked in the main lot and headed into the children’s garden. Here’s Evelyn with the frog fountain -
Pretty cabbage leaves -
Eli and Evelyn sliding down -
And of course anything the big kids did, Charlie would follow along and do just like them -
Charlie, stop getting big!!!
The Joovy isn’t really meant for holding three kids, but we made it work and I got a nice arm workout :)
Charlie thought it was hilarious to turn around and see both Evelyn and Eli on the stroller.
