My parents live an hour away from us in a great little town called Southlake. If I didn’t live in McKinney, I would most definitely want to live there. They have a great town square that often puts on fun events…we always, always, always look forward to their Oktoberfest! We drove over around 3:00 on Saturday and spent the evening there with my parents and grandparents…so much fun!
This was in front of the little yoga studio on the square ;).
She wanted to ride the metal cow :).
(And because I know you’ll ask, you can find her boots here. XO)
My people. I love my people so much.
They slid down this slide approximately 4,569 times.
My mom took this picture of Kensington :). We were just people watching. Love my sweet girl.
The kiddos always want their faces painted…dragon boy.
This year, Kensington wanted her arm painted instead. They were so proud of their new tattoos.
We stopped for a little popcorn.
And then after we ate dinner, we had some lemon gelato. Such a fun evening!
On Wednesday, I had the privilege of speaking at the Scotswood Garden Club. It was truly an honor talking with these lovely ladies. One of them in particular is Mary…a long time blog reader who also sends me the sweetest emails and leaves the most encouraging (and funny!) comments…
…after she hugged me she said that I could make a blog post on going to the bathroom fun. Loved that! Loved. That. I hope you do think I could make (almost) anything fun! Love you Mary!! So nice to finally meet you!
