Halloween was awesome this year! Our kids are obsessed with Star Wars, so of course we all had to dress up as Star Wars characters this year. A few weeks before Halloween, we took a trip over to Hall's Pumpkin Farm in Grapevine where we ate a picnic and wandered forever through a corn maze. Matthew took the kids to Boo at the Zoo and a Fall Festival while I was at a girl's Craft Weekend. On Halloween, the kids had a book parade at school and got to wear their costumes, and then we went trick-or-treating at night in our neighborhood.

State Fair of Texas

For Matthew's birthday, we took a trip over to Dallas to attend the State Fair of Texas. The kids had never been, so we were excited to show it to them. We took the train from Fort Worth, which ended up being Reese's favorite part of the trip. We saw Big Tex, ate corn dogs, fried butter, fried Jello (this year's winner), turkey legs, and Dip n' Dots. We saw an animal show and a basketball dunking show.

Southside Campout

Every year, we go to our church's annual campout. The weather was so nice! We had highs in the 80's and lows in the 60s. We ate great food, spent time catching up with friends, played board games, and the children ran wild, ate s'mores and got incredibly dirty.
