Arboretum Fun

Today we met some friends at the arboretum for the mommy and me Monday. We took pictures by the pumpkin patch, ate a picnic lunch with our friends, listened to some music put on by Kindermusic, and then Reid, Porter and Sutton splashed around in a fountain - I think they thought that was the best part of all! Annie and I drove there and back together - we just put the boys in their carseats and they enjoyed sitting next to each other! Leaving the arboretum, both boys looked so sleepy in the car - they were worn out from all the fun! We got home around 2:00 - an hour after Reid normally goes down for naps- and I thought he would just crash and take a nice long nap! HAHA! He was in his crib for about an hour just talking, he might have slept for 20 minutes, but then was ready to get out. So much for that! Oh well, it was worth it for the fun day at the arboretum. (There are a lot of pictures because I took a lot and I couldn't decide which ones I liked the best) Also, despite Reid's expressions, he really enjoyed his day! When he's doing something new, or really enjoying something, he has this "serious, studying" facial expression that he keeps throughout his exploration time. :)

Pumpkins and hay! Can't go wrong with that combo!

Reid loved seeing all the pumpkins!

I'm SO sad that I had to miss that! It looked like such a fun time. Reid looks so sweet and fall-ish in his cute little outfit with all those pumpkins.

For some reason I thought you grew up in Denton. Hmmmmm.. looks like I was paying attention during the slideshow when your sister was rushing. :( Did your parents live in Southlake or Keller?
