Fall Fun... Texas Style.

Fall is always kind of depressing in Texas. It seems like it should be nice out and you should be able to go for a stroll amidst the vibrant red and orange foliage. When really, its pretty much no different than July.

This is quite apparent while sweating like a fat guy jumping rope in the attic from just trying to lay my 3 month old on a pumpkin. We went to a fall family ministry event at a ranch with the James' and the Johns. Pushing a stroller over rocky paths is no easy task. The children got the opportunity to pet some goats, see some horses, watch their dads shoot slingshots and play box hockey, and their moms fail miserably in a cake walk... all while risking heat stroke.

They survived and we got quite a few cute pictures.... which is all that matters.

I'm glad we all survived the horrendous heat. We'll look back at the pictures one day and Lily will say, "Mom, did you really perch me on top of a pile of pumpkins when I was 3 months old just for a photo?" Just kidding. I hope some your photos turned out better with your fancy camera b/c we sure didn't get too many good ones.

I'm glad you got a picture of the goat sniffing Lily's feet. It is fun making memories. I am ready for some Fall weather, too. I think we are having to pay for having a cooler than normal summer. Nana
