I was dreading driving to Texas by myself with a 9 month old, Chip couldn't go because that would have had him traveling to Texas every week for 3 weeks. Makes me tired thinking about it! So, my good friend Tasha and her little boy Branson and daughter Britlon were up for the adventure! What wonderful friends I have!
We left out Friday after work. We thought this was a good idea so the kiddos would sleep most of the 8-9 hour ride. Thank God for DVD players and headphones is all I've got to say! And thank God for Tasha who helped me stay awake and talked to me the whole way! You are the ultimate best!
I'm ready to see Texas!
Are we there yet?
She was such a BIG help with the boys!
Sweet shy silent silly Branson
The pumpkin patch was fun! I think Hill will enjoy it a little more once he's more mobile, but I got some decent pictures. We had fun and got to pick out a pumpkin!

Here she is smelling the pumpkin gook, she loves it.
I think when noone was watching she probably ate it.
We had tons of visitors, all new to Hill, but some new to me too!

We finally got to meet Angela and Olivia Wenglar. Angela, even though we'd never met, is married to a good friend of my family and had heard about Hill's cleft lip. Her little girl, Olivia, was born with a cleft palate. Angela is an angel and helped me through some hard times. It was so awesome to meet her and her precious daughter. Hill loved playing with Olivia. Thanks for coming to play!
