It was also one of my mom's favorite places to go in autumn. She used to go cruising with her boyfriend and they would stop at various points to take pictures. S and I didn't get out of the car as often as we would have liked due to my intolerance of the cold. We were also both wearing long sleeve shirts and puffy vests. It was not enough. I even saw folks walking around in winter coats. It was that cold.
We didn't expect it to be so cold but you also have to take into account that you're going to a higher elevation where it gets much much colder. When we finally descended, the temperature easily rose up about 20 degrees. Crazy, right? It it were a tad bit warmer and wasn't windy, I would have loved to have a picnic. I really wanted Tyler to come along but before we set out we met the couple for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. Their little store is cute and really nice to peruse as you're waiting for your table. S isn't a big fan of CB but at least it filled us up and provided some warmth. Besides, I had been craving pancakes for a while so it was really nice to finally get some with warm maple syrup.
I am, however, so very glad I decided to bring my trusty little vintage Pendleton throw along for the ride. It's such a versatile item and perfect for fall to have for when it gets cold at games or any outdoor events and even picnics. I think they're a must have if you live in a colder region. You can find newer ones on their site or Macy's that go for about $100 and they even come with cute little leather carriers. If you're looking for a "sale" price though I'd stick with Macy's and wait for one of their nice sales to come along.
Overall our Sunday was relaxing even though S did all the driving. At least I let him nap when we got home while I was doing my nails and catching up on my TV shows. :)
I haven't used a proper camera in a really long time so I've been taking most of my photos with my trusty little iPhone 5. Yes, it's been a while since I've updated. I've been walking around with that and a Samsung S4. It's gotten to be a bit much. I think I'm finally ready to let go of a platform and stick to one phone and upgrade soon. What wireless carrier are you with and what phone are you using?
