First Weekend of Fall

...

This past weekend marked the start of AUTUMN!!! I love the fall so much! Fall for me is high school football, the Texas State Fair, MY BIRTHDAY, some LoNgHoRn lovin', hot chocolate drinkin', cool breeze walkin' good fun! Too bad that our fall weather left as quickly as fall started. But it still feels nice outside...for Texas.

We were so busy this weekend just playing! It was so much fun! I was a little bummed originally that I wasn't going to camp this weekend with the hospital but we had so much fun right here in Dallas that I quickly forgot all about camp!

Friday night we all went to Oktoberfest in Addison. It was such a fun event to go to! If you have never been then you should definitely check it out next year! We visited with friends and cruised the mini-Midway...after all, we have to gear up for the fair opening this weekend! Molly loved the mini-Midway! We will be stocking up on tickets at the fair this year because she is crazy for all the kid rides!

Gabriel got some VIP lovin' from the City Manager of Addison, "Mr. Ron"


Molly rode her very first ride ALL BY HERSELF. Look how serious she is about her choo choo train adventure. She is becoming such a big girl!


After a ride on the carousel and an attempt at fishing, Molly was ready for the teacups with her godmother...which she refers to as the "teapots"

Saturday was a complete Happy Birthday Daddy day!!! Too bad I only took one picture! We went out for a special breakfast, shopping fest, took a stellar nap and then had a movie night with friends! Molly sang "Happy Birthday Daddy" all day...over and over...



On Sunday we had some a dinner date with some of our great childhood friends! Gabe had some great make-out time with Chloe...


While Molly cleaned the Wallace's out of their watermelon... (this might be slice #6)


The Fall fun didn't stop there...you still with me? On Monday we went to the arboretum to check out the fall festival! Molly loves Mommy Mondays because it means that she gets to pet the sheep! SO FUN!

Here is Molly brushing her favorite sheep also named Molly...

I was really attempting to take some fun fall pictures of the kiddos. I had pictured this wonderful shot of Molly and Gabe holding their pumpkins and smiling. I will save the work for Emily Mulkey to capture and instead get pictures of my children in true form as featured below. Molly is sucking on the pumpkin and Gabriel is eating the hay...he sort of has a Hay/Grass fetish...


I had no luck with Molly...but Gabriel definitely got into the whole excitement of fall!



Molly was too interested in her make-up to care about the pumpkins...

Happy Fall!

Poor Gabe- Chloe's totally licking his ear in that picture, isn't she?

I'm cracking up at Molly sucking on the pumpkin! Gabe kind of looks appalled...
