"Autumn" in Texas

Officially, I suppose, it is Fall here in Central Texas. Only a technicality--as nothing resembles the MN Fall that I am used to! Everything is as green as it has been since...well forever...and the temperatures? You guessed it--HOT!!

So today we tried to reclaim Autumn, and visited a pumpkin patch.

As you can see by our squinting eyes, shorts, and red faces, the sun did not share our sentiments, and appeared in full summer glory.

Henry had a blast petting the horses, chasing the chickens, and attempting to feed the goats. We posed for a pic with one of the horses--but instead got feet full of fire ants--OUCH! Luckily, I've been bringing my very good friend, AfterBite, along on all our Texas excursions.

We had a tasty hot dog and cold Sprite in the shade of a loving Oak Tree, and finished our outing with homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream. We brought home a family of mini pumpkins so we could share Autumn with Karl at home.

What a Busy Month!

September is a big birthday month--Karl's mom, Niece Monica, my Dad, Karl, and then me! yikes--and I'm sure I've forgotten someone :)

Here is a recap in pictures of our crazy busy month.

As you can see, most of our month was spent eating and/or celebrating :) Yay for September...that reminds me, the red cake is calling my name!

Baby Bump Update

Our baby girl is getting bigger! It's so funny how gradually my baby bump changes, so it wasn't until I was closing the car door the other day and my belly got in the way, that I realized just how big she's getting :)
