How can one live in a world where cold fronts arrive right in time for the weekend and still doubt the goodness of God...?
I don't have pictures to show for it, but we kicked off the weekend with dinner on the patio at Live Oak Grill with some friends on Friday night. Covered patio, fenced in grassy area with play equipment for the kids, and queso on the menu, so pretty much the greatest thing ever.
Saturday was the same routine we've been practicing for several weeks now: soccer in the morning and Aggie football in the afternoon. We sprinkled in a lunchtime picnic at the park to spice things up a bit.
As usual, Clara opted not to participate in the game because she was "so tired" [Insert eye roll here], but you better believe she had the pep back in her step when it came time for the post-game snacks to be doled out. At least Colby played, and if I do say so myself, he looked pretty cute doing it:
Pumpkin photo sesh break during the A&M game
Making Halloween cookies!
After: nailed it!
After church on Sunday, we hit up the pumpkin patch at the church across the street from ours. It ended up being a flop for us, so after I spent an hour or two pouting about it, I put on my big girl panties and decided to make the most of the afternoon. And that we did:
Went on a walk to the store to get a few more pumpkins
Painted pumpkins (clothing optional)
Carved a jack-o-lantern
...dined al fresco, dressed up in last year's Halloween capes/masks, watched a couple of "spooky" cartoons, read our new Halloween book...
and checked out our jack-o-lantern in action before hitting the hay!
October, I heart you.
