Fun Fall Activities

Weekly Happenings: This past week has held some fun fall activities. One was getting to go to Bass Pro’s Shop for their Halloween fun. There was a Charlie Brown-themed backdrop for people to take a picture in front of and some games for the kids to play. After we went there, we went to our favorite BBQ place to have dinner. It was a fun night. Another fun night was the trunk-or-treat at Joseph’s school. It was a little loud for our taste (they had a DJ), but Joseph and Abigail seemed to have fun and a lot of people thought their costumes were pretty cool. Finally, we had our annual trek to the pumpkin patch. We finally have a weekend where it isn’t raining, so this morning we headed out to the Hill Country for some fun walking around, riding the barrel train, petting the animals, and other fun. Other than those two things, not much else happened out of the ordinary for us.

The Weekly Weather: It started out rainy but finally about Thursday, the sun made a reappearance. It’s been so nice to see blue sky!

What Paul’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary for him. He has been kept busy with work and helping out with Young Men’s at church.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I had a pretty typical week as well. I did get to go to a baby shower for one of my friends which was fun.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He had a good week at school. He loves GT (the gifted and talented program at school) and is learning all sorts of awesome things about the moon and space.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been her typical happy-go-lucky girl. We let her loose at the pumpkin patch, which was so much fun for her (a little tiring for me, but it was better than trying to maneuver the stroller through the muddier parts).

This Week in Pictures:

Here’s the picture of the kids from Bass Pro’s Shop last week when we went to their Halloween-themed fun day. Joseph had a hard time getting Abigail to hold still, haha.
I think this playground outside of our favorite BBQ place is the biggest draw for the kids.
Abigail loves crawling around after Joseph.
Someone thoroughly enjoyed her blueberry pancake.
Playing dress-up right before bed.
“I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille!”
Joseph getting in on the act.
She loves hats of any sort…
…even if they’re a little big.
All ready for the trunk-or-treat.
Cutest Pikachu I’ve ever seen!
Trying to figure out the trike.
Gorgeous Texas sunrise.
Joseph loves to decorate a scarecrow every year at the pumpkin patch.
Abigail was more interested in trying to break free, haha.
Running through the hay maze.
Goin’ strong!
Not gonna give up…
You know there’s been a lot of rain when the hay starts sprouting mushrooms, haha.
He made it!
Abigail’s turn!
I think she would have been happiest unleashed, but she came to accept it after a bit.
She made it, too!
This is always a fun cut out for Joseph to pop his head into.
It’s hard to believe that we used to have to hold him up to see into this and now he can stand on his own.
The cutest pumpkins in the patch!
Petting a very bored horse, haha.
Joseph was being very patient and brushing the horse’s mane.
Waiting for the music show to start.
They let the kids play instruments along with the show. Abigail loved it and kept dancing and clapping along.
Visiting the animals in the petting zoo.
Getting ready for the barrel train ride.
This is probably his favorite part of the patch!
Wee! My legs still kind of hurt on the sides, haha.
Looking at butterflies.
Abigail REALLY wanted to get up close and personal with those butterflies.
It was such a beautiful scene out there…
…and a beautiful day to boot!
