This past weekend we went to visit the grandsons who live a few hours away from us (and their parents, too).
Their school was having a fall festival on Friday evening and the soccer teams were doing their annual spook-out tournament on Saturday. On Friday evening after the festival, we went to a sports kind of restaurant to watch the Astros win!!! What an exciting game that was!
Brady and Noah used up almost all of their tickets doing this fun activity. The inflatable log fence had a big log in the center similar to the bucking bulls you may have seen. It went around and up and down and the kids had to dodge, jump over or be hit by the thing. They thought it was great entertainment!
As always, we have to make a trip to this famous place for the best donuts ever!! Melt in your mouth donuts. On weekends (I don't know how it is on weekdays) you have to wait in very long lines to place your order whether indoors or in the to go line. The cars are lined up around the building and down the street!
First thing Saturday morning we watched Noah be goalie for his team.
On our way home we saw this yard all decorated for Halloween. Every year the decorations for Halloween are more elaborate. Since I'm not a fan of Halloween, I guess I just don't get it.
Brady's team were dressed as heroes for the spook out soccer tournament.

Us freezing on the sidelines. Brrrrrr. It was so cold and windy!
Games were played until 10:00 Saturday night, but when the sun went down, DH and I were out of there. In between festivals, soccer, and eating, we had fun playing table tennis with the boys. They're very good players, and important note, they bought the table tennis with their own money.
I am so proud of them, they are good kids who make honor roll consistently, are good citizens, polite, well-mannered, and responsible kids who keep their rooms neat and have chores to do around the house. And on Friday, Noah learned that he had been elected as VP of Student Council for the entire school. That's quite an honor for a third grader! The only reason he didn't make President is because you must be a fifth grader.
Back at home, our little ninja and a sweet mouse!
Carving their pumpkins.
Our church had a Fall Fest Trunk or Treat event. This family is one at church who seem always to have great family fun together and each year their costumes are great. Gilligan's Island this year!
And yesterday, DH's cousin came for a visit. He sat and told stories to DH and they talked over old times and cherished memories. Mostly, Joe did the talking as DH listened.
Annie seemed to like him, too.
Joe has led somewhat of a wild life! He was a correctional officer in a prison and champion bull rider on the side. He was inducted into the Rodeo Hall of Fame a few years ago.
Today is Trick or Treat Day. Rain is in the forecast. I have a lot of candy to give away and if no trick or treaters come, I will give it to our dentist to give to the troops.
