Fall… finally.

I actually thought Fall would never get here this year. It has been so hot for so long. We are still unseasonably warm, but at least we can now play outdoors! We took advantage of Blake's day off last week by visiting the Arboretum. We've done this every year since Egan was born to see the pumpkins. Each year he has more fun, and does a better job of dodging my camera. Here is our trip from the first year… and then two trips from last year here and here.

Egan had a blast this year playing in the pumpkins… and throwing them though we asked him not to… repeatedly.

I got him to sit still for a few seconds at a time by handing him a pumpkin. Otherwise, we chased him.

The pumpkins this year were awesome. Check out the variety and sheer volume!

He broke loose and ran. Thankfully, Blake was along for the trip. He got do to the majority of the chasing.

I thought this squirrel in the midst of the pumpkins was pretty cool.

This was my favorite kind of pumpkin. I think it has so much character!

Egan DID NOT WANT HIS PICTURE TAKEN.

Like not at all. Can you see that face???

He was fine though when we visited the fountains.

And since we are in Texas, the weather is still plenty warm to play in the water!

It should come as no surprise that he ran some more.

And played in the water some more.

We ended our outing with a picnic lunch on a bench in the shade. It was the perfect way to spend a day with my two favorite boys!
