Out to see the Fall Foliage!!

Karen throwing leaves on us

Nancy Grams and Kelly

Nancy and Grams at the Buckner cemetery
The trees were just beautiful there

Karen had gluten free cup cakes

Nancy had an Eclair

Kelly and I had Pumpkin cheesecake and
we all had a taste of a pumpkin bar

Grams at the Leawood City Park

Nancy at the same park

Yesterday we took off and went over to the Blue and Gray park at Lone Jack. Not really in Lone Jack but out in the country somewhere!!! I could not find it in a million years. Nancy wanted to go there because in the winter we were over there, and there were so many different birds.
Of course that day was the coldest day of the year with snow on the ground and the birds flying here and there,that day they showed up really good!
Then we took off for Liberty Mo and the bakery "Just Desserts" He is the baker who made the beautiful cake for my 70th Birthday party a year ago. I have posted the pictures of our desserts . His shop was so quaint, it is a block off the square and the trees around there were beautiful.
We drove around the Campus of William Jewel a 4 year liberal arts college that is really old and the architecture is so beautiful.
Then Karen took us to a park she sometimes has her lunch at when she is over at her work. It is the Leawood City Park and what a neat park. We had a fun day and I haven't seen the trees this spectator for years!!!

LOL! I am sO enjoying these pictures! You just look so happy with all your little ducklings! Happiness just radiates from you! AND your girls! My favorite though is the one of you alone with those gorgeus trees behind you - what a GREAT shot that is! And I agree - the trees this year are prettier than that have been in a looooong while!

Sorry I've not been around, but I have my older son and ten year old granddaughter visiting from Ohio for a few days.

Love all the colorful pictures of the fall foliage, and yum on the deserts. Looks like you all enjoyed yourself so much.
