Pumkin' Patchin'

Recently, we took the girls for the annual pumpkin patch trip. On our way, Catherine kept asking if we were going "Pumpkin Patchin'", thus the title of this post. :)

The weather was so gorgeous and we enjoyed our time together so much. The girls shot the corn cannon, fed some goats and rode the cow train.


Then, we went through the corn maze. Just like every year, the girls are super pumped at the beginning, the one or the other of them starts doubting we will ever find our way out. Travis and I, (being the good parents that we are), feed right into them and let them know that we will probably be cold if it gets dark, but at least we will have corn to eat while we are stuck there. :)

After our fun in the maze, we picked our pumpkin and headed to Cabella's for a little more craziness! I absolutely love fall with my sweet family. We had a great time and enjoyed our time together.

Weekend Wrap Up: DATE NIGHT!

We had such a great weekend this weekend. We were busy and lazy all at the same time and I loved it!

Friday night, we went to Nicole and Aaron's for their Annual Fall Party/Gender Reveal Party. Nicole is pregnant and I was so excited to find out what she was having! While we were waiting, Aaron took the kids on horse rides and the adults enjoyed time catching up, as we have all been so very busy lately.



Finally, it was time for the reveal. Nicole and Aaron carved a pumpkin with the gender and lit it at dark...IT'S A BOY! They are so excited and I cannot wait to see Nicole as a boy momma! Such a fun time with my friends...Tara having a girl soon and Nicole a boy!

Saturday, we were SO lazy, or some of us were. Travis and Emma got up and went hunting that morning. They had some much needed time together and Travis gave Emma the biggest ice cream cone ever on the way home.

Hannah, Catherine and I hung out at the house and played. I enjoyed my time with them. We all watched the football game, napped and enjoyed a Saturday with no commitments. (I didn't get out of my PJs until 4:30).

Saturday night, we got a sitter and Travis and I had a date night! WHAT!? Yep...we did. It was so wonderful. We spent some time together and with our friends, Rachel and Shane. Don't get me wrong, we were home before 10 and I love my girls so very much, but sometimes, time with just Travis and I is so refreshing! I just love this guy! ( goodness he is so handsome!)

Sunday, we went to church. We actually got there early and I asked the girls if I could snap their picture...I got this...

It was a much needed relaxing weekend and we enjoyed our time together so much. It was just what I needed before heading out of town for work this week.

Weekend Wrap Up: Razorbacks and Babies

So...while we have a pretty good routine going at our house, my little corner of the Internet has fallen to the back burner as of late. Please forgive me as there has been homework to check, people to feed and Homeland episodes to watch. But, I am really REALLY planning to change that starting NOW! :)

This past weekend, we spent Friday night at home. We hung out and watched Despicable Me (for the 100th time). It was a quiet, low key evening. Quite nice, if you ask me!

Saturday, Travis and I went to the Razorback game. It was raining while we tailgated, but stopped during the game. It was fun...but we lost. BOO!

Sunday, I helped host a baby shower to Tara and her sweet baby Olivia Mae. It was beautiful and so fun!

Happy Friday!
