This is what you will find us doing every day after dinner. The weather has been beautiful and we have been taking full advantage of the new sidewalk around our park. Our path takes us down around the park and to our tennis courts. The upside to old courts is that no one minds that all the toddlers take it over with their riding toys.
Evan is really ready for a big bike, maybe Santa will bring him one.
Last week we visited our local pumpkin patch. The same one where we took our sleepy pumpkins when the trips were just a month old. They all ran in different directions to explore the pumpkins, discovering to their delight and our dismay that they roll quite easily down the hill or in Holden's case keeping busy putting small pumpkins in people's bags. I'm sure someone came home with an extra pumpkin or two including the lady below in red.
Evan proudly displays his pumpkins. Later he decides he would rather have a gourd.
Memo carefully peruses the miniature pumpkin pile.
Memo ends up selecting a green pumpkin. No surprise there as he is into all things green these days.
Lily obliges me with a photo op and a smile, saying 'pumpkin pie!'. In turn GG made a delicious pumpkin pie for us in the afternoon.
We ran the Run Austin Run event this morning. It was a hilly course starting at The Triangle, heading west along Balcones and Scenic Drive before going east along Enfield, north through Pemberton and Brykerwoods, then east on 45th street heading back through Rosedale.
They put on a good race, but unfortunately the rain came down hard during the last mile and that put a damper on the post race festivities.
Jennifer completed the 10k and David finished his first half-marathon. Without pushing a stroller this is easy work. David finished in 1:52 at 8:33 m/m as he ramps up for the Austin Marathon in February. Updated to add Jennifer's time 1:05 at 10:35 m/m.
