Fall Good Times

We had SUCH a good weekend.  Nothing spectacular, just FUN.
And yeah, I understand that it's Fall where you are.  We LOVE Fall here too.  In theory.  In reality, around these parts, Fall happens for about 5 minutes in October.  So we're still enjoying lovely warm temperatures down here!

{Layna kidnapped my phone and took a bunch of pictures - mostly self-portraits.  
So this post is dedicated to Elayna!}

Friday night we had movie night at home.

Saturday we watched the Gator game (we WON!  Go Gators!!), swam, and ate BBQ with some friends.

On Sunday, we went to another friend's house and hung out at the lake, laughed our butts off, and ate bacon-wrapped venison cooked on the grill.  Amazing.

{She is looking SO grown up.  *sniff, sniff*}

idk what's going on with my hair here.
it has a mind of its own. 

Mostly we laughed & laughed & laughed.  One of the funniest moments of the weekend:

The girls are sitting in the back of the truck.  They're playing punch-buggy and "banana", which is where you punch the other player if you see a yellow vehicle.  (I'm convinced these games were created by sadistic siblings.)
So at one point Elayna says "Do school buses count?"
And I said:
"If so, I'll drive by the School Board bus yard and y'all can beat the CRAP out of each other!"

Good times!  Hope y'all had a good weekend too.

"You better REDNECK-OGNIZE!!"

I love how you're enjoying your daughter and giving her such fabulous encouragement. She is so blessed.
Are you sure you want to wake up to 36 degrees and frost? TeeHee!

Fall should last much longer, the first part of it is the best part.

Have you ever been told that you look like a bit like Lauren Graham & Maggie Gyllenhaal - Wow

That is a good description of Fall, that is exactly how long it lasts where I'm at. I love your statement about driving by the school bus yard - I'm going to have to use it ;) Visiting from SITS.
