Fall is Here

Fall is here and I am so weather, football, chili, boots, visits to the park, visits to the zoo, Holidays with family, etc...some of my favorite things about this time of year. With fall, also comes hunting season for Brandon and lots of visit from family to keep us company while Brandon is hunting. This is Brandon's first weekend away, so Mom came up to visit Jack and I for the weekend. She was able to come on Thursday night because she had a holiday on Friday. We were able to have some Girl time Friday while Jack was in school and Jack time later that afternoon. We went to dinner and out for yogurt Friday night and then hit the sack to prepare for a long Saturday, starting with a trip to the zoo and ending with a win for LSU and yes, for Brandon a win for Auburn. It was a great day! We are sure getting our money's worth of the zoo membership from Gigi and Poppa these days with this great weather. Jack is obsessed. We are going to be sad to see Mom go tomorrow. We are already counting down the days until our trip home the end of the month for the LSU/Auburn game.

Here are a few pics from the trip to the zoo....

Gigi and Jack on the Carousel

We ran into The Stricklands when we first got to the zoo and Jack was so excited to see Mary Molloy, so we walked around with them for a while until we quickly were reminded how different boys and girls are. Jack was dying to see the alligator and ride the train and Mary Molloy wanted to ride the Merry Go Round and eat ice cream.

Jack sat with this goat for about 10 minuntes and had a full on conversation with it. Mom and I heard him say "Hey Goat, what you doing in there, Hey...." Then he sat on the ground and proceeded to tell him about his trip to the zoo. It was priceless. I have it on video and as soon as I can figure out how to upload it, I will.

I hope everyone is enjoying the early fall as much as we are!!
