Pumpkin Patch 2013

We took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch last week, and I am pleased to report that the twins LOVED it this year!  They were so excited to see (and pick up) all of the pumpkins.  Emily's favorite part was "talking" to the numerous scarecrows and Elson loved shaking the hand of each elderly lady there. is link to last year's pumpkin patch post

2013 Red River Revel

The twins and I took full advantage of the Red River Revel last week (I posted about it last year here).  They were really able to enjoy all of the childrens' activities this year, and I really enjoyed watching them.  Their favorite activities were the grocery shopping, bounce house, and geological digging.  It was a lot of fun and we are already looking forward to next year!

El Karubah Shrine Circus

The twins and I, along with our buddies the Garons, took a trip to the circus last week.  I had really been talking it up with the twins so they were very excited when the time came.  As soon as we walked in we were greeted by a couple of friendly clowns.  Friendly or not, the twins were not having it.  Both screamed until they were out of sight.  The first couple of acts kept their attention somewhat, but then came the elephant.  They were both completely enthralled with the elephant tricks.  Emily kept asking "Momma, what he gonna do next?"  It was adorable!!  We only lasted until intermission, but I feel like we got a full circus experience, and while the twins enjoyed it, I felt a little bad for all the animals.  I don't think we will go back until they specifically request it.

It was very hard to get a picture of their faces

Obviously, Emily was not in the mood to take a group picture.
