We {heart} Fall

With fall, comes a little break in the oh so hot temps of Texas.  Which means one thing for us...spending more time outdoors.  And that makes us all happy!  Fall means a little change in the color of vegetation surrounding us.  Not a whole lot, just a little here in Texas.  Fall means pumpkin patches.  Pumpkin bread.  Halloween costumes.  Trick or treating.  Smores.  Cider.  All reasons I {heart} this time of year.

We've been a little busy lately enjoying everything about the season so I haven't taken the time to do any updating of the ole' blog.  And because this little one keeps me on my toes at all times, she leaves me little time to do much sitting and writing and updating.  We thought big brother was going to be our wild child.  She's definitely giving him a run for his money.  Or should I say she's giving mommy and daddy a run for their money.  BUT she's so much fun.  She makes me smile on days when I don't think I have anything left in me.  And she still adores big brother.  She's a sweetheart.  She's my lil' Boop.       

Pumpkin patches are always so much fun.  The hay rides.  The petting zoo.  The pony rides.  The corn maze.  Picking out your favorite pumpkin.  This year, I decided to keep it simple.  We visited a pumpkin patch at a church just down the road from us.  Convenience and simplicity won me over.  No hay ride.  No petting zoo.  No pony ride.  No corn maze.  Simply pick out your pumpkin.  Take a few pictures.  And then check it off the fall to-do list.  Sounds terrible but I find that sometimes in the midst of such crazy schedules, my kids need simple and easy.  So do I.  And I find that we enjoy the outing just the same.  So here's our pumpkin patch outing for 2013.  Best part was that B was in town, so she got to join us.  Sure made it easier on me :).  Happy Fall Y'all!
