Oktoberfest {but not really...}

A couple of weekend ago we headed back over to Leavenworth to cheer on Nicholas in the Oktoberfest Half Marathon. The bonus part of the whole thing was that the siblings were all planning to head over as well, so we rented a fabulous house that fit us all (in beds!) for the weekend {thanks CoCo for planning} out in Plain.
 We initially had plans to spend more time in town for some Oktoberfest action, but after the race we decided to post up at house to relax, play games, go on nature walks and just enjoy some down time.
A fabulous Fall Family Fun Weekend (how's that for a little alliteration?!)


And not just the siblings, but the Loviks too...who are basically family, so I've still got my Family Fun theme going here.
Little girls excitedly cheering on their daddies. Pretty darn cute.


We woke in the morning to the most wonderfully foggy blanket that encouraged the coziness to linger a bit longer.
But by mid-morning the fog had lifted and it was a gorgeous, sunny day.
It just smells so good there. In fact I'm pretty sure everyone was getting a little tired of my incessant declaration of the amazing smell...but it just does!
Crisp, clean. Like trees and leaves and dirt and air. How Fall is supposed to smell.

A much deserved beer after the race.

This one has been fighting the afternoon naps lately...and so, we walk. The Ergo always wins.
S'mores, pumpkin beer, and star gazing

Check that off the Fall Bucket List.
