Weekend in Waco

We got to spend some time in Waco with Drew & Rachel last weekend.  It felt like old times…playing games, watching tv, eating Tex-Mex :) 

My Houston zoo membership got us in the Waco zoo free, so we spent Saturday morning checking out the animals.  Calvin loved it!  He walked through the whole thing searching for the “fafants” otherwise known as elephants.

Calvin loved playing with their dog Ruby, poor thing was terrified of him though.  Anyway, little man thought it would be fun to be a dog for the day..

Sweet Berry Farms

A couple of weekends ago, we got to meet up with some new friends at Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls for the pumpkin patch.  Unlike VA, the pumpkins in TX are pre-picked…kind of a bummer, but what are you gonna do?

Church Fall Festival

The church that’s basically in our backyard hosted a fall festival a few weekends ago.  They had a petting zoo, horses, a bounce house and carnival games.  It was a fun day.  Calvin especially loved the petting zoo.  Except there was a little black bunny that wouldn’t give him the time of day :)

Weekend in Paradise

Texas that is! I hope you all can forgive my lack of posting these days, but maybe you can cut me some slack considering our last post :)

Anyway, the first weekend in October we headed to Luke’s family’s house in the country to hang out. On Saturday morning, Luke and PawPaw took Calvin to see some animals at a friend’s house. Calvin even got to ride a horse!

Then we spent the day watching the Aggie game and enjoying the beautiful weather outside.

Calvin kept going toward the pool, so we thought “if he sticks his feet in, he won’t want to swim (b/c it was freezing)”. But Calvin is a kid, and kids don’t care how crazy something is at the time :) He lasted about 10 minutes before he was screaming of the cold. We had to warm him up in a bubble bath.

Then the boys decided to do my favorite thing ever (can you hear the sarcasm?).

And finally, we tried to get a good pic of Calvin with the grandparents. Of course he didn’t want to be a good sport, I guess it was nap time :) But here’s what we got.
