Week 40 {365} Unseasonably Warm.

It's 10.10.10. A day we won't readily forget.

Temps will be a record breaking 80+ degrees today. I can't remember the last time we hit a pumpkin farm in shorts. I'm lovin this global warming more and more. (That's sarcasm.)

Breathtaking views. With perfect temps.

Last night we had a milkshake/park run. In shorts. In October.

And if it wasn't for these hardy little buggers...

or all the stinkin frogs the kids keep snatchin up, it might just be the perfect world.

But if it means I can wear shorts in October I'll take it, frogs and all.

Cause in case you forgot this is Iowa.

And life doesn't get much sweeter than this.

  2. We are used to warm falls in San Francisco. Summer is SO cold here and it doesn't start to warm up until September and October.

  3. What beautiful pictures. I am torn by this warm weather -- I love it, but I can't help thinking that there is something just wrong about it. It's not supposed to be this warm in the midwest at this time of year.

  6. It was perfect camping weather! When I last checked, the weather forecast said that the highs would be in the mid-70's and the lows in the lower 40's, but it was so warm! We didn't even need the hoodies we brought.

  7. Ah you just don't "get" frogs. One of the world's gorgeous creatures - yes really... Could you please send me some sun, we've had rain for two weeks and I'm over it! (Should never complain though, this time last year was drought - yup gotta love global warm....not).

  13. I love the warm weather but was thanking my stars that we went to the pumpkin farm last weekend in the 60 degree chill. Because I need some apple cider while there...and I don't need to sweat it back out.

  15. I have missed seeing your beautiful pictures. And these are extraordinary.

    Fall in Florida means shorts and high 80's. But last week at my girl's soccer practice, it dropped into the 60's and we Floridian parents were all a shivering.

    And yes, I'm back in the land of the seeing. Thank you for all your good wishes. I'm glad to be back at your blog.

  16. We have Indian Summers every year in the fall. For Halloween it can be raining, freezing or hot. Last year I wore a red sundress with a cape and devil horns. It was mild and gorgeous. The day before I was at Disneyland for my birthday. I love this weather. I would rather it be cooler though. I'll admit our cold days are usually 28 to 45 degrees. lol

  17. We are having that same weather...and cool nights which make it a little more desirable. Great shots of the kiddos!

  18. WOW. I'm so very jealous. Y'all get Fall before we do. I've seen few trees change colors though my driveway is already covered in dead leaves. We are enjoying shorts in October right now too. Gorgeous pics as usual.
