Dallas Arboretum's Autumn Festival!

We took the girls to the Dallas Arboretum's Autumn Festival on Sunday. We had a great time with friends from our church!

Sophie playing in the hay maze.
Sweet Sisters!

Mommy & Libby!

Girls will be girls! (I'm sure you can see that Sophie was having a HARD time sitting still!)

Libby - 10 months old!

Happy Fall Y'all! I love this time of year! Sophie & Libby were both sick last week - so we're looking forward to enjoying the fall weather this week! :)

(For all my northern family members - that's what Big Tex (this giant statue of a cowboy) says at the state fair!)

We went to the fair this past weekend with Rhett, Rebecca, Fielder, & Linda. We had a great time! The weather was pretty good - it got hot towards the end.

I know this picture isn't the best - but it's the only one we took of all 4 of us! :( It was chilly in the morning - so the camera fogged up..... Oh well, if you squint your eyes just right - you can see us! ;) Actually, Sophie's in the front seat of the stroller with the blanket over her head... oh well, we tried!

Watching Rhett & Fielder ride the (expensive) swan paddleboats!

This was a sad story... this lady (yes, that's a lady) was picking Sophie up to make sure she was tall enough to ride this ride with Fielder. Well.... look at the next picture...

This is Sophie watching Fielder on the ride because she was too short! :( Actually, she did really well - she didn't throw a fit! She cried a little - but then she just stood there and watched.

Here's sweet Libby taking a much needed a nap at the fair! I think she liked all of the noise!

Sophie finally got to ride a ride! She was tall enough to ride the tea cups! Being this was her first ride ever - I think it was a good start! It was fun - but not too fast!

If you click on this picture to enlarge it - you'll see that she's having a blast!

Now we all know how good the greasy fair food is (ahhem, Rebecca)! Here's Libby eating her fair food of choice ------ Cheerios! :)


This was soooo funny! We were about to leave & when we looked down at her - she had fallen asleep with a sucker in her mouth! Now how many kiddos fall asleep with candy in their mouth? She must have been super tired!

We had a great time & it was a lot easier than I thought taking the girls! We can't wait to go next year! Although, we'll have an 8 month old little boy with us! That's hard to believe!?!?
