First of all I wanted to thank those of you who commented on my previous post concerning the loss of our sweet baby. Your kind words were beyond encouraging and have lifted me up during this time. And for so many of you who have lifted us up in prayer, called us, visited, etc. the past couple of weeks.....thank you. It means so much!! It reminds me that we aren't suppose to carry our burdens by ourselves, and so by sharing with you this burden and having seen so many come alongside us we have seen the Body of Christ at work...and it's a beautiful thing. xo.
Yesterday my two sisters with kids and I set out to the beautiful Dallas Arboretum to explore and enjoy the sights of their Autumn pumpkin displays and flowers. It was SOOO beautiful!! Naturally, being a floral designer and an all-around lover of all things natural, I was in awe the whole time. :) And being there with two of my best friends didn't hurt either! And the kids? Well....they just had a ball (literally, I think a couple of them thought the pumpkins were balls!) in the pumpkin patch! Here are some photos I took to capture the memories of the day:
|Cole on the path lined with pumpkins :)|
|This is his newest thing: he loves to point|
at things with his index finger and has the
funniest expression on his face when
|Just his size ;)|
|Always a little taste too...|
|My Little Pumpkin :)|
|Me & My Baby|

|One of the Pumpkin Houses....there were lots of them!!|

|Tongue smiles :)|
What a fun day it was!!! I hope you enjoyed the pictures and if you
live in the area...let's go again! (I know I plan to!) :)
Happy Start of Autumn Festivities!!!
P.S. What fun Autumn activities do you enjoy with your family??? Please
