Fall Feeling

I get majorly sad when the weather starts to turn and the days get shorter. Last week was much colder than average and it rained every. single. day. But this weekend? Highs in the mid 70's and clear skies. So I've been trying to stay outdoors as much as possible. We took Wilbur to a trail near our house and I went a little crazy with the camera.
One of my favorite things to do when I was a kid was dig around in the creek by our house to find salamanders, toads, etc. My sister and I found a toad in our yard and kept it in an aquarium. My mom thought we would have it for a few days or weeks. It lived for ten years.

My dudes.

There's a big stone quarry near the trail and all these great cliff walls.
This water is completely clear but the surface is covered with leaves and lily pads. You can see little fish and any time you make a move, you can see ten or more frogs jump from the edges of the pond into the water to hide. 
Wilbur loves water. No he doesn't.

I tried to do the braid thing with my hair and obviously failed.
I can't handle the cute.

So sometime in the middle of winter, while I'm clutching a bottle of antidepressants and soaking in the rays from my artificial light therapy, I can look back at these pictures and remember that it does get better.
