My Birthday Bash

This year's birthday bonanza was as splendid an affair as last year's. Ryan started it out with the traditional eggo waffle and omlette breakfast in bed. We decided to find an acceptable fall type activity to do as a family to celebrate the occasion. It turns out that pumpkin patches are pretty scarce in the greater Houston area. By and by we did find one, but to our delight Dewberry Farm was much, much more than a pumpkin patch. I think it was more like a carnival for young children. They had goats, horses, chickens, pigs (they do races every day). They also stocked the farm yard with big bouncing toys, a cart track, playgrounds for little kids and also for big kids, a corn maze, and a shed housing corn kernels 2 ft deep. That was way cooler than the balls at McDonalds. Bella was a little overwhelmed by the 10 other kids in there jumping/ throwing/ making corn angels in such close range to her.

Ryan also took me to the Olive Garden for my birthday dinner. Bella almost ate an enormous meatball all by herself. I think that's more protein than she usually gets in a week. After dinner we wrapped up the evening watching Pride and Prejudice. I just can't get over the music and cinematography of this latest version.
I give my hubby an A+ for this birthday. Thanks sweetie!

Cute pictures and I'm jealous of your short sleeves. It is cold here! We went to the pumpkin patch, it was 40 degrees and muddy. Oh well. When are we going to see some belly bump pictures? :)

I LOVE the shoes! And your little baby belly is sooo cute! Seeing your toes reminds me of the time that we did our own pedicures. We used to have so much fun!
