Picnic at Berry

This weekend we went to Berry College for a picnic with our friends, the Taylors. The weather was gorgeous! A last little bit of warm weather before fall sets in. We picked up lunch from one of my favorite delis in Rome, then headed out to a field for our picnic.
Natalie was worried about snakes and Jackson lost a shoe in the knee- high weeds! We played football with the boys and let them play in the trees, then loaded up to start our ride/ walk over the campus.
The trees were beautiful! We enjoyed just walking and looking at the colors. It was so nice not to have to carry Hudson everywhere we went, or to load up in a stroller.
Hudson and his handsome daddy
Chasing ducks- some of them were quite aggressive, and we later saw a girl throwing bread get nipped by one of the geese.
He was mesmerized by the water and the swan.
Beautiful fall colors. Never a picture with everyone looking the same direction, though!
Sweet, smiling baby.

Jackson the tree hugger. He is such a cute little boy.

He's had enough! One thing you can count on Hudson for is voicing his opinion! He will always let you know when things aren't going his way. At this point we'd been walking for about 45 minutes and he was completely over us, nature, and ESPECIALLY having his picture taken.
After a breather he's all smiles again!

Jackson begs for mercy from the eye- poking monster, Hudson!

All hugs and smiles. Jackson is so sweet with Hudson. He pats him gently on the head like a dog and gives him sweet hugs.

Frost Chapel is one of the most beautiful churches I've seen. There was a bride inside getting her pictures before her wedding and it was just breathtakingly beautiful. Two toddlers didn't fit into any wedding day plans, so we didn't poke around for long.
All out of smiles again. (But still looking cute!) This was one of the most fun family days we've ever spent. Things are so much easier now that he can eat and walk! I hope we can always be this happy.
