A Texas Fall

My mom recently spent a week and a half with us, and we so enjoyed her visit! We unfortunately do not live in the same city. We're in DFW and they're 5 hours away. Anyone else have this problem?? No bueno! So, when my mom comes into town we love it! Not only do we love spending time with her, but I love how helpful she is. She'll cook, help clean {she even did my husband's laundry}, and babysit Caleb so the hubs and I can have a date. She's the best house guest ever!! {Bryan said he wishes she lived closer...I do too, but it's for a different reason}

Since my mom was in town we decided to take Caleb to his first pumpkin patch. If you live in the DFW area, I highly recommend the Original Flower Mound pumpkin patch. It was only $5 for parking and all activities were free {food/gifts/pumpkins all had a charge}. 

My mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and niece met us at the pumpkin patch, and it was nice to share Caleb's 1st patch experience with the family. 

The weather was a bit warm, but that's Texas for you. Completely unpredictable weather {considering the previous weekend was freezing...ok 50 degrees, but that's darn cold}. 

We had a great time and purchased a couple of small pumpkins for our little man! I'm glad my mom was in town to share this fun with us!!!


  1. Cute pictures!

    I am fortunate enough where my mom just lives a couple miles down the road. I'm glad you enjoyed time with your mom!

    1. Thanks Kendall!! You are one lucky girl to have your mom close by! Give your mom a hug and tell her you're glad she lives close ;-)

  2. I had a great time with the Knox kids. I thank GOD that my son-in-law Bryan loves me and appreciates spending time with me. It is the greatest gift my children can give me - appreciation. I will gladly visit the Knox kids as often as possible and will stay with them for as long as they would have me. Pray for good health now & future, so I can enjoy times like this, not only with the Knox kids but as well as the other 3 kids and their future families.

  3. Oh gosh Caleb's shirt is SOOOO CUTE!!!!

  4. Thanks so much for the heads up about the Original Flower Mound Pumpkin patch. We recently moved to DFW area and I really haven't figured out where are the "good little places" are yet.

    Thanks also for stopping by my blog.
