Pumpkin Patch

We managed to get this in a few days before they closed for the non-season. :P

The sun was super bright and of course, just about all photos of me have my eyes totally closed, or blinking.

Sad to say, I orchestrated this...

Ah, my transitions saved me from total no-eyedness.

The Force is strong with this one...

So I managed to convert one of the hub's old voluminous shirts into a Luke tunic... and sewed some pouch-thingies for the "utility belt " and Voila!

ACU Homecoming 2016

Madge very graciously allowed us to use driveway to watch the ACU Homecoming fireworks.

It seemed a much shorter show this year,

and there was none of the drama of a fire, like last year.

But we enjoyed it, short & dramaless though it was,

and went home to play sparklers in the front yard.

:)

The little boy wants to be Luke Skywalker this year, so one of Daddy's big shirts is getting converted into a costume!

McMurry Homecoming 2016

/This is a back-dated post./

We were at the McMurry Homecoming field last month.  We were once again there at the wrong time, and there wasn't anyone there to show us around and stuff.  So we just started wandering around by ourselves and snooped around. MWAHAHA

West Texas Fair and Rodeo Part 2

We went back to the Fair a few days later, and the evening sky with the setting sun was just brilliant.

We stopped by the Pavilion area and took advantage of a table there to have some dinner that we had brought along, while listening to the band that was playing there that day.

We also spotted a lone yellow balloon bobbing away in the distance.

After dinner, we walked around and took in the sights, sounds and SMELLS!

We were a little late for the Tractor Pull, but the organizer was really sweet, and let the little boy do it by himself.  He was very encouraging, and the little boy shocked himself with how far he managed to pedal this time around!

We also got a participation ribbon to go with the ones from the previous years :) Hurray!

After that, we strolled down the midway and decided not to go on any of the rides that might make us sick.

We did, however, go on the rotating bear, as tradition :)

We started to walk back towards the Pavilion, seeing how Crystal Gayle was set to sing that night.

We did stop by at the different booths that were offering local goods and services,

and get some "head shots" in.

And how could we not have some funnel cake at the Fair, I ask you.

The grand finale of the night was catching some of Crystal Gayle's concert towards the end..

A pretty good Fair experience, all in all :)
