Pumpkin Fun

Okay, well our playgroup had planned to go to the Dallas Arboretum today to take pictures in the pumpkins with the kids today. Then all of a sudden, Texas got a cold front and everyone decided to back out. (I know my Canadian friends are now laughing because us Texans call 60F cold!) Anyway, this morning after I told Kirstyn that we weren't going to go, I found this on my white board in my laundry room...

I'm pretty sure my hair looked like that this morning when I woke up! Anyway, I was a little sad too and the sun was coming out so I took the tags off of the kids jackets, packed our picnic lunch and loaded up in the car. Then I called David to see if he would want to take a long lunch and go with us on our picnic and he said sure! We had a great time even though we were not there very long. Oh and we even got a couple of family shots!



James and Kirstyn even were enjoying each others company rather than fighting. So that made the morning even more fun! Oh and Kirstyn made a friend at the petting zoo.
Oh and I really liked this picture of me and James! Check out his black eye. I guess he was due for another one since his last black eye just healed and I scheduled an appointment at Target to get the kids pictures made in their costumes!

Happy Fall Y'all!

good for you going anyway...I am not Canadian, but yeah, 60 is NOT COLD dear ;).

Love the pictures, and have I mentioned how great you look?

Your pictures are great! And how wonderful that David was able to go too!
It WAS cold this morning, but with all the great pictures we got, I think it was worth it. I'm sorry we missed seeing y'all. (we were there early[10ish], when it was VERY cold[47degres])

Oh that looks like so much fun! I especially love the pumpkin house - that makes a wonderful picture with you all in the window! Sorry about the black eye! It seems those little ones are just at the right height and tend to get a few of them as they are growing up - especially boys! Thank goodness it wasn't more serious!

People cancelled out of going and it was 60???? You are in short sleeves for goodness sake!

Y'all need to come up here for a day in January...that'll fix you!

;-)

It looks like a great place, I love the pumpkin house. James is pulling a Kamden...the kid had a bruise or bump on his head from age 9 months to two years...

Oh it looks like y'all had a great time! I would've still gone but honestly I was pretty wiped out from my trip.

And it was pretty dang cold in the wind at the pumpkin patch we went to back in A town.

Love the family shot!

Darn those friends for canceling on you! It really was quite lovely today. I'm ready for some cooler weather! Looks like a great time, and I love the family shots. That pumpkin house is coo tool! So great that David could join you.
