Our Trip to Waco

Hunter and I decided last week that we and our friends Garrett and Jen needed to go visit our Waco friends, Becky and Coralyn. We packed up and headed out on Friday. We had a great trip down. Hunter (10 months) and Garrett (5 1/2 months) traveled so well! We stopped and dropped off Garrett's big brother, Preston with his Lolly and Hoss and kept on heading to Waco. Somehow, Jen missed a turn off and we ended up in Dublin Dr. Pepper, TX. I always wanted to see that city so it was a nice little detour! The guys were sleeping soundly in their car seats while the mommies navigated our way to Waco.
(Jen frustrated after realizing we missed a turn and no we didn't stop and get a DP.)

We got to Becky's house about 11 with 2 very sleepy baby boys. After the guys got to bed, the mommies stayed up waaaay too late chatting and catching up. It had been too long since we had seen Becky and Coralyn. We were so glad we decided to make the trip.

Saturday, we got up and took our time getting ready. We took the kids to a little pumpkin patch to take some fall time pictures. Of course, Mr. Hunter would not look at the camera so I didn't get any good pictures of his precious face. Jen, our favorite amateur photographer got some great pictures of Coralyn though.
Hunter was very curious. He picked up and "threw" several pumpkins. "Throwing" consists of picking a ball up over his head and throwing it down. Strong man! It was fun watching him explore the hay (of course, he had to taste it too) and pumpkins. I took a ton of pictures, some were not great, some are beautiful of my kid! What fun!

We spent the weekend playing, taking pictures, and just being friends. We are so blessed to have such good friends, near and far. Jen and Becky, thanks for a fun, memorable weekend. We can't wait so long to do it again!
