Pumpkin Patch 2011

Every year we go to the Pumpkin Patch at the church in Pearland. I just knew this year I was going to get some great pics since both the boys are getting older and I figured Carson would help keep Colton sitting in the right spot long enough for me to take a picture of the both of them....ha ha ha! I'm not sure if the BIG pumpkins scared him or he was just being moody but he was NOT having pictures, he would not let go of me and screamed if I tried to put him down so loud that everyone was staring at me. So I gave up and just took them of Carson. He was so cute this year, he wanted to take home all the pumpkins, and wanted to take tons of pictures. He is understanding that his mom loves pictures and it is probably easier to just go along with it:) Colton was fine once we got to the small pumpkins but would only do his silly smile. We have family pictures this Saturday so I am hoping he is great picture spirits!

Carson with the BIG pumpkin, look how he is pointing to it, lol

Colton finally joining in and loading some pumpkins in the wagon

This is his silly "CHHEEEEESSSSSEEEEE"

Carson has to get on the tractor every year, he loves it!

Look at my BABY! He looks so old sitting there, and look at his beautiful hair just glowing:)
This is my favorite picture of all, I love that laugh and catching it on camera is the best!

Until we got to the baby pumpkins I thought this was going to be my only shot of Colton...disaster!

Growing up on Lake Travis one thing was certain in my family... you were going to like the water, love to tube, know how to ski and spend all summer on the lake! Yep we did! So passing this love for the lake and fun on to my boys is PRICELESS. A few weekends back we went up the the lake with our neighbors and close friends The Breaux's. Carson as you should know is absolute best friends with Madison and Bella. This year Bella and Carson are in the same class at school and just today their teachers confirmed exactly what Brandi and I have been saying... those two just might get married one day, lol.

Back to the lake... on Saturday we rented a boat and my great friends at the boat rental place threw in a tube for us. Since Carson is sometimes a little scared of things I wasn't sure he was going to tube, but all 3 of the kids (Colton is still too young, and was moody cause he was teething) got on and HAD THE BEST TIME! The daddy's rode with them of course and they had to go again and again.

We had the best time at the lake with the Breaux's!

Taking a snack break, tubing is hard work!

Colton and MommyCarson fell asleep driving...lol


So it's official....I am a soccer mom! And team mom as well. Didn't know that was all going to happen at age 3.5 but I guess we got to start somewhere:) Carson started playing soccer in September for Space City Futbol Club. First practice Corey was out of town so my mom went with me to help with Colton while I did snacks for the team. We were sitting there watching Carson and at one point I turned to my mom and said "is it just me being a mom or is he really good?!" I was so impressed at the soccer skills Carson naturally had! He did great and loves it so far. They are the Under 4 group so the really just practice for about 30 minutes then have little games. Most of them just run around but they are so cute to watch and Carson is doing really well!

First day of practice. Looking like a Pro already:)
