I'm a little behind in my posts. October has shaped up to be an extremely busy month but we are home now and plan to be for awhile.
Last weekend, Kristina, Annie, Luke and myself flew up to Minneapolis to spend the weekend with Kyla and Michael. We hadn't seen them since March and were much overdue for a visit. We had a great time. They are having one of the coldest Octobers on record so it was a bit of a change from our good 'ole Texas weather. But it was nice and refreshing. Saturday, Kyla drove us by the offices of Cargill where both she and Michael work. Then we hit the Mall of America and spent a good 4-5 hours there. Needless to say, we were pooped after that shopping trip! Sunday we went to a little Fall festival. Luke and Annie had a blast...
They had so much fun in the hay maze
They had a blast playing with Aunt Kyla
This was a "corn pit", it was about 4 feet tall of corn. I had never seen this before. Annie loved it. Luke wasn't too sure.
Luke was trying to figure it all out
Running through the corn maze
Can't catch me
Who needs the path, we'll create our own
Just the right size for a little seat
Aunt Kyla and Uncle Michael
Nothing says "fall" like these trees
While Luke and I were gone for the weekend, let just say there was some male bonding going on back at home. Jacob and Jim had a great weekend together. And they were busy. It was homecoming up at North Texas so they went to the bonfire Friday night which Jacob loved! He also talked a lot about the cheerleaders! haha
Saturday, Jacob rode his bike while Jim tried to keep up on foot, to a local donut shop for breakfast. Then they went to play lunar golf in the mall which Jacob loves! Then nap time it was, for both of them I think! Then they went to the North Texas game that night in Denton. Jim's dad joined them. They made it through the first half and headed home. Sunday they went to church, went to a trial class of Little Sluggers then met up with Jim's mom for the afternoon. After their visit, Jim and Jacob were off to play putt-putt golf. Jacob informed me he liked this better than the lunar golf in the mall. They ended up playing 4 games of putt-putt. 18 holes for each game. Wow! I think Jim wore Jacob out after all of this fun!
We also just got back from spending a few days in Kilgore with my parents when my mom had her surgery. Kyla ended up flying down for it too so it was a treat seeing her again just days after our trip up there.
