Instead - I'll tell y'all about meeting up with Heather! I "met" Heather through blogging about a year or so ago. She and I connected because we both have boys around the same age. Come to find out, they're only 3 weeks apart! And now, she just welcomed a new baby girl who is 3.5 months younger than John Robert. Anyway - Heather and her family just recently moved to the Dallas area from Nashville, so I wanted to get together and meet her in person and let the boys play. We decided to meet at the Dallas Arboretum last weekend.
This was my first trip to the Arboretum. They have it decorated so cute!
Hudson patiently waiting to meet his new buddy, Colt.
It didn't take very long for them to warm up to each other.
"Look Mommy - dat's dee end of da line"
Pretty pumpkin house. There were several of these.
Tried to get a picture of both boys in front of the frog. Hudson looked at the camera in one pic (sort of)
And Colt looked at the camera in another pic (sort of)
I bet this is gorgeous in the Spring. These are all crepe myrtles.
Playing in the water is always fun.
Lots of castles to play in....still couldn't get them both to look at the camera at the same time.
Colt being goofy
They got along so well - even the rough housing was in good fun.
They hugged it out.
I hesitate to even post this next pic. It was 90% humidity on Saturday and I was having a horrible hair day. Don't judge.
All in all - it was a great outing! The boys got along wonderful and Heather is as sweet as can be. I didn't get a single picture of Miss Sula. She was sleeping the whole time and I didn't want to disturb her. She's as precious as can be! Can't wait to meet up with them again. :)
In other news - check out this chunkin. Would you have EVER believed that he weighed 3.5 lbs???
It's crazy. Does he even have a neck? So funny. Cute, little chunky monkey.
He's gotten very verbal lately and he loved playing with his toys!
More chunky pictures. I just can't get over it.
Hudson had his Thanksgiving program at school last week. It was hilarious. My friend, Suzi and I were laughing so hard that we were crying. Watching 2, 3 and 4 year olds sing songs is really amusing. Especially because there are some kids who really like the spotlight!
Here's Hud and his class with their turkey hats.
And after the program with me
I just love his school. They do so many fun activities and he's learned soooo much. I'm so thankful we decided to send him. He couldn't be happier.
And he loves his teacher - Mrs. Christie.
Have y'all started your Christmas shopping?? I'm happy to say that I'm about 85% complete. Just a few more gifts and I'm finished. Yippee!
Judging from our playroom - I really don't think Santa needs to visit. Seriously??
This is just ridiculous. I cringe to think what it will look like as John Robert gets older.
We had family pics done last weekend and I'm hoping we got some good ones, so that I can start my Christmas cards. I'm ready to decorate. This is my favorite time of the year!!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I have so much to be thankful for this year! xoxo
