fall weekend fun!

We had such a fun, Fall weekend, and I loved every minute! Pop came to keep his girls company for a couple days last week, and we're so glad he did! Mommy is basically off duty when Pop is around because Jaqs insists that he do it all ;) I don't think he minds, though.
 Of course, Jaqs always has a few new tricks to show off {see upper right pic} and plenty of loving to give to one of her favorites. 
We spent a lot of time at the park on Thursday evening/Friday morning, then we had to go cheer on daddy and our Wildcats Friday night! We were playing our big rival, and Jaqs did so well throughout the game! She got a little antsy towards the end and ran SPRINTS all around the stadium, but she made it to the end! It was well worth it, too because WE WON 54-20 over Belton! Rob was so happy to see his girl(s) after the big win! By the time we got J home, bathed, and in bed, it was nearly midnight. She was one pooped pea!
 We slept in until 10 (!!!!!) Saturday morning, then Pop did a few things around the house for us before leaving to head back home. Jaqs was back down for a nap by the time Rob got home, so I got out for a little "mama time" with one of my girlfriends. We added a few things to our Fall wardrobes and maybe picked up a few things for our baby girls, too ;) We had a family dinner date Saturday evening, then Rob and I pretty much parked in on the couch the rest of the night. As you can see, he didn't last long! Poor guy.

On Sunday afternoon, Roxanne had the coach's wives over for our annual "Caramel Apple Sunday!" It is always so much fun, and I'm so grateful that she has kept this tradition going for all of us! Unfortunately, my toddler kept me from getting to participate much, but some of the other ladies picked up my slack (thanks Lexi & Susan!) and made my apples for me. I still had fun visiting and just being "away" for a few hours!

I LOVE FALL!!! And it looks like we're finally going to get some cooler temps this week! Praise the Lord....bring on those 70 degrees of perfection!! Hope you have a great week, too :)

I like that Jaqs is working on her guns at such a early age!

Caramel apple day?! That sounds amazing! What a great weekend. We did a whole lot of nothing special (again). :) One of these days we're going to get our act together and do something fall-related and fun!

The pic of Jaqs hanging from the oven handle cracks me up. What a little monkey!

And caramel apples? I can't remember the last time I had one of those and now it sounds really good.

Love the picture of Jaqs looking at Rob from the game. That is so precious!

The caramel apple day sounds so fun! How wonderful to have a group of women like that, where you can get together and do those things!
