Halloween – Part 2 – Trick or Treating

I’ve come to the conclusion that dressing up as some superhero is a “right of passing” for all boys. At some point they will be spiderman, superman, ironman, batman, etc. Well, Dylan has passed. I tried to convince him of something creative but lost…but I might add, that of ALL the spiderman…he is probably the cutest. (okay, I know I’m biased)

I asked Dylan why some were sticking out like this and without hesitation…he said, “those are the stations!” …oh…of course!

I had so much fun with my sweet sweet little man today! Happy Halloween to all, and to all a Goodnight!

Dear Rangers,

I’ve finally been convinced by my Uncle J that Rangers are the best, I need you to win so that you can keep playing in the World Series.

Josh Hamilton’s #1 Fan,

Pumpkin Patch!

We drove up to the Flower Mound pumpkin patch and had a great time! Fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of year so I look forward to the pumpkin patch every year!

Dylan has loved the Little Einsteins since he was about a year old, he still has to watch them EVERY morning while Dustin and I get ready!

Tuesday, October 12

Corn dog, lemonade, poppin’ dots, pretzel, sausage on a stick, hot dog…and of course…funnel cake!

So we stuck with what we know at the great State Fair of Texas (no fried butter, fried beer, chicken fried bacon, etc.) but we still managed to have a great time! Dylan had never been before and Dustin and I had never been together! It was CrAzY crowded but by watching the dog show, going for a ride on the ferris wheel, and sitting down for many-a-snack we had fun!

I’m pretty sure that K-12th grade I went to the fair every year, yet, I HAD NEVER BEEN ON THE FERRIS WHEEL BEFORE! I’m not sure how that is even possible, but it is true. So we decided it was time!

IMG_0130

Dylan just kept looking up at it! haha, I knew he would do okay though! He’s a little fearless like his Mom!

 IMG_0131 

Waiting in line!

IMG_0132

Ready to do this!

 IMG_0134

“Wow that is high!”

 IMG_0137

We are on! And for some reason I didn’t get that many great pics actually on the ride!!

 IMG_0139

 IMG_0145

Nice view of downtown…

 IMG_0151

Goofy…

 IMG_0153

After the ferris wheel we went to meet Big Tex!

 IMG_0166

Dylan was pictured out so this was the best we got :)

 IMG_0168

Dustin’s favorite part of the fair (other than the food) is the car exhibit! Dylan LOVED getting in and pretending to drive, he kept saying we were going to CD (who knows where this came from!)

 IMG_0172

Silly boys!

IMG_0177

The high-light of Dylan’s day was his first taste of “poppin’ dots” – AKA dippin’ dots!

 IMG_0175

Waiting for the light show we got another lemonade and it was not a hit…it was actually fresh lemonade, apparently, these 2 would prefer the powdered stuff…

 IMG_0182

Sweet silly bands!

 IMG_0184

We stayed around for the light show and then headed home! Dylan was B.E.A.T. – that is a lot of walking for a little guy, but he was a trooper!

 IMG_0186

After the free ride on my shoulders, we were SO ready to get to the car…so we skipped!

 IMG_0187

We had a FANTASTIC day! I can’t wait to do it every year and make some fun fair memories with my family!
