Our First Full Week of Fall

We have spent our first full week of fall dealing with Texas weather! We had a couple of nice days in the low 80's with cool mornings, a couple of rainy days (it's suppose to rain all weekend too), and a couple of hot sticky non-fall like days. We were able to get in a couple of good walks, an afternoon at the park with friends, and a front yard play date with the neighbors. I did not take many pictures though. I always had it with me, just never got it out. But I did manage a few....

We also got some painting in. This is one of Connor's favorite activities, oh lucky me. I find green hand prints and blue spatters everywhere! Even when I think I have been very careful, I will find a smudge of paint behind the pantry door. It cleans easily though!!

We even got out to the zoo Tuesday morning. It was a beautiful, cool morning and I had not 1 but 2 uncharged camera batteries so these 2 shots are all I got in. But it's the zoo....the same animals are still there. We certainly enjoyed our visit, as it had been a while. I would like to say that is where we will spend lots of mornings over the next couple of months as the temps begin to fall, but quite frankly I am not so sure. It was VERY tiring for me....pushing a 40 pound stroller and 60 pounds of kiddos.

Connor started martial arts. I will post more about this next week when he is in uniform. He seems to be "very excited" about his class though. Let's hope since we just signed up for 6 months!

And nothing like an early morning ride around the kitchen to get you going!

And an early morning wreck, all staged of course!

We haven't been to the zoo in weeks! Need to get out there. I know the leaves are so pretty right now in that area.

Love the pics, as always!
