The start of FALL and farewell Allen.....

Everyone who knows me knows I love summer. I love hot summer days, being in my swim suit, going barefoot and all the fairs. That being said, it's a toss up as to whether Fall or Summer is my absolute favorite. Hot chocolate, Chili, fall clothing, the bright colored leaves, bonfires, the perfect sleeping weather, and FOOTBALL. Not to mention Jimmer and Nick have fall birthdays and Nicks and I's anniversary too! I just love it. The last few weeks have been a blast with tailgating, watching football and busting out our sweatshirts. These photos are random but it documents our end of summer/beginning of fall adventures. This weekend, Nick, Jimmer and I are going to Bloomsbury Farm and I cannot wait. I'm convinced that I am more excited for me than I am for Jimmer :)



On the way to Iowa City to tailgate for IA vs UNI :)

Tailgating.....that tshirt I have on is from 2003 or 2004 from UNI Womens bball camp! #vintage

"Mom I think the Hawks are going to snag a win today eh?"....the weekend after the UNI game...Iowa vs Central Michigan....this did not end well

Me and my husband look alike...got him to look at the camera this time

Brayden joined the fun....

"It's not looking good Papa...lets take a nap and wake up when it's over" ...Jimmer nervous for the 4th quarter

"Get me out of this outfit IMMEDIATELY....I hate losing!!!" - said after the Hawks disappointing loss

 
And here are some kitchen adventures with Jimmer....
 

Toast and Cherrios for breakfast





Clap clap clap clap clap




He tells us immediately when he is ready to get out....

"I TOLD YOU TO TAKE ME OUT OF THIS OUTFIT"
 
 
I also have to note a dear person to me who passed away this past week. Dr. Allen Koepke went to live above us unexpectedly a few days ago. He was my musical director in a show I did called Jim McDonough Holiday Grande in both 2009 and 2010. Aside from that he led a choir I sang in back in grade school, and in high school we sang a number of the songs that he wrote and we were privealged to have him lead a few of those concerts where we sang his songs. He was to lead Jim McDonough again this year and we had just auditioned on September 16th. There was a great write up in the Gazette about him....you will truly be missed Allen. I am certain he continues to lead a magnificent choir.

Allen always gave us a tearful and heartfelt speech after our final shows....
