Happy Monday. Please enjoy a few pictures.

Before the weather turns cold and because it's not scorching hot anymore (for the most part) I've been trying to get outside more. Fortunately I have people who go with me and fortunately I like them and fortunately they like me. I've taken my kids on 3 outdoor picnics in the last 3 weeks and I fully intend on squeezing in a few more while I can.
We have some amazingly gorgeous parks in the area and even though I've lived in North Fort Worth for most of my life I rarely take advantage of this. No longer! I want my kids to remember going to the park for picnics and playing outside. It's such a shame to waste the opportunity to get outside and just have a fun weekend with friends and family.
I no particular order, here are a few photos from the past weeks...
My niece, Sadie and me. She's all holding her head up like she's a big girl now!

This photo makes me think of celebrities that are hounded by the paparazzi while doing normal, everyday things with their kids. Except I'm not famous. And I don't have a $900 pair of sunglasses on. In fact, these sunglasses cost me $20 and they just broke in half.

Quack Quack! These ducks about attacked us when we ran out of bread. Side note: when I was in high school and didn't feel like attending my first class I'd drive my car around this park until I got bored and then head to school. (Hi mom! Did I ever tell you that?)

This is a HUGE tree that's magnificent. Poor Jackson didn't think it was fun when his momma made him go inside the tree. I'm so mean.

Because I couldn't really get inside the tree thanks to nature giving me hips, Derick and I posed outside of the tree.

My sister-in-law, Jenni, me and Jackson. Jackson's face turns bright red when he's been outside playing. He looks miserable doesn't he? I promise he was just fine.

My sweet baby, Jackson.

I gave

Sadie an acorn hat! And apparently it was 12:54pm.

I don't normally pass up an opportunity to make retarded faces. See my brother, Thomas? He looks thrilled doesn't he?

Momma and baby.

OMG. Did you notice that Derick is almost taller than you? And he's only 13? He's going to be 6 feet tall when he grows up!

You look fantastic and I just want to kiss sweet Sadie's cheeks! She's so darn cute!
