Ft. Worth Visit

October 13, 2010 2:14 pm

Eric’s sister and husband gave us a much needed vacation at their house in Ft. Worth last weekend.  Travis even got to come along too. Miles was in awe of his cousin, David.  We enjoyed the first half of a TCU football game until the kids were too tired to push forward.  

Lyla enjoyed the game!

Miles had fun playing football with the big kids in their front yard.  He seemed to think it was a good idea to run around with a baseball helmet covering his eyes.  David thought it was hilarious.

We also were able to have a quick visit with my grandparents.  Lyla enjoyed playing with Gama’s costume jewelry and Miles had fun decorating daddy.

Now we are (im)patiently awaiting Halloween.  Both kids can barely contain themselves. Lyla has already declared she wants to be a dinosaur like her big brother.  Miles had fun testing out an old lion costume I found in the garage.

The highlight for September was a visit from Cameron and Emily.  We enjoyed a day in Austin shopping for Halloween costumes, riding the Zilker train, and lunch at Shady Grove.  It was very nice having an extra set of hands with the kids running opposite directions on the playground:).

Miles has a newfound love of making funny faces.  The kid show, Yo Gabba Gabba, seems to have a lot to do with it.

Lyla is still 100% girl. She has mastered the art of giving kisses and loves playing with her baby doll and wearing jewelry.
