plano balloon festival

saturday morning we got up early.
really early. 
like before the sun early.
we headed out to the plano balloon festival to meet some special friends.
we made it to the park right before the sun came up.
and just in time to see the hot air balloons blow up and launch.
the kids ran around, ate donuts, and enjoyed the balloons.

the sun rise was beautiful.
and the hot air balloons were very neat.

it was early - notice justin's tired eyes - but worth it.

so pretty.

after most of the balloons had launched, we headed on the field to get a closer look at the ones still on the ground.  it was neat to see them up close, however the kids weren't big fans of the fire blowing into the balloons.

it was a fun fall morning with our sweet friends!

baylor game.

yesterday we headed down to waco to cheer on our baylor bears. 
it was a fun, family saturday.
our first stop was on campus.

the rules by the bear den.
justin wants these at our house - specifically for the last one.

next the bookstore.

and then the sub.

we got back in the car and headed to the stadium.
we got there early so we could see a few friends at a couple different tailgates.
mr. jay - one of my kids' favorite.

my sweet roomie from college, heather

we headed to our seats with about 20 mintues to spare.
p loved it all.  he was totally "into" the game.
he watched, he cheered, he had a blast.
stella had fun too - she was a bit more antsy and wanted to move around a lot - but she loved the band and being able to be as loud as she wanted.
luckily, i had plenty treats to keep her occupied. 

rene and sweet baby carter stopped by to say hello.

this is so my son.

our sweet family of 4.
