We love Fall here in the Krauss house. And Fall 2013 has been jam-packed and full of fun. I thought I would share what we've been up to through an iphone picture dump.
First up...I took a wonderful trip at the beginning of October with 3 of my very closest friends in the whole world. Steph, Kelly, Shae, and I lived together at Baylor and their friendships are one-of-a-kind. These girls are more like my sisters, and I love them so! We had the best time visiting Stephanie in Palo Alto. It was so fun to see her before her first baby gets here (I was the only one NOT pregnant on this trip :-). We spent time in Palo Alto, explored San Fran, and saw BREATHTAKING Half Moon Bay. I'd like to go back tomorrow please!
Matt had fun with the kids while I was gone. One morning they visited our favorite neighborhood pumpkin patch and painted pumpkins:
We made our annual visit to the Texas State Fair a couple of weeks ago. A little rain didn't get in our way! Caroline remembered all of the fun things at the fair this year and was so excited to go back. She couldn't wait to ride the rides and the ferris wheel. She rode the wheel with daddy and wasn't scared at all. Mommy and Matthew stayed behind because we're not crazy ;) Matthew's favorite part of the fair was seeing/feeding the animals in the petting zoo. He was also so excited to sit on a "real" tractor and try out a couple of the kiddie rides (which he hated!!!) We can't wait to go back again next year!
I attended my first Kindergarten field trip on October 18. Matthew and I tagged along to the arboretum and it was completely crazy. Kids running everywhere. They had a great time and it was fun to watch Caroline with all of her classmates. I love any glimpse I get into her school life!!
My sweet friend, Lauren, and I completed our first duathlon (the Espirit de She in McKinney, TX) on October 26th. My mom brought the kids out to cheer us on since Matt was out-of-town. They kept me going :-)
Whew! It was a busy but fun October. That brings me to Halloween which is another post all together! Hopefully, I'll blog about it before Christmas, ha :-)
