With the arrival of Owen and Christmas cards due right around the corner, we knew we wanted to capture the family with a nice fall photo shoot during the holiday season. We had lots of great photos thanks to Melissa Pinto Photography, and here are just some of the moments captured!
It had been three years, but the Tuckers returned to Homestead Farms to pick out some pumpkins to truly get into the fall spirit! It was a beautiful day with plenty of bright orange gourds to pick from. We settled on two for our soon-to-be-carved creations – definitely the best of the bunch!
Fall is the best time of year, and we started it off with a beautiful weekend day at Cox Farms (our second in so many years)! The weather – after weeks and weeks of 90-degree days – was beginning to turn a tiny bit cooler. The pumpkins and fall bounty were out in full force….
Another month, another family birthday! Pop Pop hit another year older, and we celebrated during a crisp fall weekend in the country – plenty of chocolate items on hand to make it that much more exciting for the little ones, and booze for the adults!
Thanks to the talents of Paula Paiva Photography, we got to capture the beauty of the season (and us frolicking in the woods for a half hour). All we have to say is thank goodness for the nearby playground to use as a bribe. Victory was ours!
Since one chocolate factory wasn’t enough for C, we hit two in two weeks with a trip to Hershey Park in the Dark. There were rides, trick or treating and even a zoo, making this chocolate-themed experience hard to beat!
Colin’s birthday was the coldest day of the season to date, but that didn’t stop a trip to the Corn Maze in the Plains for some fall-filled fun! Of course, the day ended with a chocolate treat to celebrate three crazy years of C!
With more fall festivals than hours in the day, we needed to pick our fests wisely. We opted for live-action animals, combined with some trick-or-treating, at the Reston Zoo. It didn’t disappoint. From feeding the goats, sheep and birds, to checking out the camels, zebra and snakes, it was an action-packed morning!
With beautiful fall day ahead of us, we watched some of our tax dollars at work while attending the Fairfax County Fall Fest. This meant “free” arts and crafts, a petting zoo and entertainment, plus some not-so-free food and rides. Another great outing to demonstrate why fall is the best time of year!
