Happy October everyone! I can’t believe it’s already fall! We’ve already been apple picking {more pics on that below}, ate apple cider donuts, and plan on heading to a pumpkin patch soon because Elle is obsessed with pumpkins. We also tried out some fun new restaurants, took a trip to Lake Geneva, and spent a lot of time outside since the weather has been so nice!

Hopefully you follow me on Instagram Stories, but if not…take a peak at what we’ve been up to below:

Obviously starting with this cutie patootie. This month Elle shared her bedtime routine as well as all of her bath time essentials



We had dinner al fresco at RL Restaurant and tried out their new hotdog which was delish!



Elle and her friend went Apple Picking at Apple Holler. It was fun, but really hot and lots of mosquitos.



Some other tasty treats at RL.



Guys! I’m totally obsessed with this sweatshirt. Shop it here.



Elle loves all of her stuffed animals!




We spent a weekend up in Lake Geneva at The Abbey Resort and had so much fun! The weather was perfect.
