Perfect fall day

Mark’s parents and brother came to my hometown to visit Abbie and me one more time before we head back to Italy.  Again, I had fun messing around with my 50mm lens and trying to figure out manual mode a little more.  Abbie loves having everyone’s attention and they love giving it to her and I love the break, so it’s a win-win situation for all involved.
Northern IL is SO pretty this time of year.  It was nice walking around town for a while.  We ate at one of my favorite restaurants, watched a few weiner dog races and got some ice cream.  All the walking was making my back hurt quite a bit, as it usually does, but it was still fun.  I accidently zonked out in a chair in the living room when we got back to my house though.  Oops.  The third trimester exhaustion is definitely hitting me big time right now, which is perfectly bad timing.  I have too much to do to be this tired.
Hopefully we’ll get to see Mark’s family sometime next year, but that’s all up in the air right now.  Makes saying goodbye a bit harder when you’re not sure how much time will pass between visits.
