The Patch


What was supposed to be a short trip to Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls on Sunday turned out to be just the opposite. Lesson learned= GPS really doesn't like anything involving farm roads and it'll mess with you if you attempt to go there.

The insane frustration was worth it. We got to explore a gorgeous area that we didn't know even existed out here. Even better, my dear friend Kayce was in town to enjoy it all with us. Just a great day spent together.

Lil was thrilled to feed the goats. Four days later, we're STILL hearing "mmmmm.... yummy goat food. It's good!"

They hayride wasn't as exciting.... however, the walk over was. We were asked to walk through a tunnel to get to it, and once we did, someone pointed out that hanging right over our heads was a baby bat. Yuck.


The whole pumpkin patch trip has been a tradition for me and Mike since pretty much when we first started dating. We're a little dorky that way.

Lil was all business about our big mission: to find our family pumpkins. I think my fall obsession has rubbed off on her just a little bit and I'm pretty happy about that.

I just love that she's big enough now to really enjoy things like this.

That's "Lily" that she's holding. She found it 2 seconds after we got there and wouldn't let go. It's lined up right in between the Daddy and Mama and Mimi pumpkins on our porch where it'll stay until we carve it on Halloween.

Ever since she was born, we've talked about traditions that we want to start with her during the holidays and this was one of them. So fun and a blast seeing it all through our little pumpkin's eyes.

Finally catching up on the blogs--I love these last two posts! What a cute pumpkin patch. So fun to see new areas--we've got to check out Marble Falls.

I love the pictures of you and Lily in the flowers! And what you wrote...so beautiful. You are so right--we need to charish each moment with our loved ones and not worry about things that don't matter. I need constant reminders of this simple truth, and I'm grateful for this touching entry.
