// Autumn, Apples and Acorns: A shoot with EGG //

Oh, Autumn.  Is there anything better than the crisp mornings that turn into warm, comfortable afternoons.  When the leaves dance in whirlwinds above your head and apples are in your basket.  In Autumn, there are birds passing through and squirrels scurry around the yard storing acorns in the ground.  

I'm not sure there is anything better than watching the boys enjoy the fall.  One of our favorite places to explore is Wallisch Homestead.  With wide open spaces and buildings that have been standing for about 200 years it's a great place to bring the boys.  It's part of our town's history and I love that the boy's get to experience that even if they spend most of their time chasing each other.  ;)

Have I mentioned I love Autumn?  
Oh, and sweaters.  Glorious, comfy sweaters and corduroy pants.  Flannel camp button ups and colors that match our surroundings.  

All of their outfits are by EGG by Susan Lazar and I'm not sure fall clothes could be done better than by them.  They are comfortable, which is great for my active boys and oh so handsome on them.  I almost couldn't handle it!  I may have squealed with delight every few minutes or so exclaiming, "They are just too cute!"

But moms are allowed to do that right? xx

"As a child, one has that magical capacity to move among the many eras of the earth; to see the land as an animal does; to experience the sky from the perspective of a flower or a bee; to feel the earth quiver and breathe beneath us; to know a hundred different smells of mud and listen unself- consciously to the soughing of the trees." (Valerie Andrews)

"Shhhh!  If you talk too loudly the birds will fly away, the faeries will stop their tending and the trees may close their wooden mouths."  
I can imagine, if Elliot and Asher were able to communicate more of what they know, they would tell me things; magical things.  A child's imagination, no matter how fantastical, always speaks an innate truth.  The truth that promises if you open your eyes wide and listen carefully you will remember that the universe is bountiful and kind.  And that we must be that in return.  
We visited Wallisch Farmstead to sail our newspaper and lemon boats.  We set our acorn people on an adventure and wished them farewell.  This is a great activity to do with children: the boys were fascinated by the characters they helped create and to see tiny boats sailing in the stream.  You can find many tutorials on pinterest for newspaper boats.  For the lemon boats, I cut them in half and scooped out the insides.  I painted faces on acorns and that's it!  The boys are a bit too young to paint the faces themselves, but they enjoyed watching me do it!  
For the headband, I took a piece of yarn and measured it around Elliot's head. I found thick leaves (i chose ones that had already fallen off, because I feel a bit guilty just plucking healthy leaves off a plant.)  I used a whole punch and threaded them through the yarn.  And there you have it!  A lovely leaf crown/headband to blend into the forest.  Enjoy these activities and if you try them out please take photos and tag me in it!  <3

All of the beautiful clothes are by Egg by Susan Lazar.  They have the most darling clothes and the boys were so thrilled to be styled head to toe in them!  They are so well-made and fit my boy's personality perfectly.  I love recommending brands I actually believe in!  When I write it, I truly mean it and i'm just in love with EGG's style.  xx
