The only bad thing bad about today was the heat. Summer has returned so despite the fall festival theme, it did not feel like fall at all! Try high 80's....ugh! Other than that we had a blast!
Since we are a little crazy at times we could not arrive as a family. Drew rode yesterday in the hill country and was hoping for another ride today. We decided that he could ride to the park and we would meet him. It worked out perfectly. We parked five minutes before he arrived, changed, and the fun began.
|Of course I was camera ready to snap a picture!|
There were lots of things to do, but with the heat we tried to keep it simple. We did a pumpkin patch activity and even then only half of it. We finished decorating the pumpkins at home in the air conditioning.

The kids played on the various park play sets.
We walked around looking at all the silliness and took some fun pictures.
They had their faces painted and listened to a puppet theater story...The Three Little Pigs.
Perhaps the coolest part of the afternoon was watching the Memorial Hermann Life Flight Helicopter land. It was amazing to watch it land in such a small area. The wind created by it was crazy! We were probably 40 or so feet away as it landed! The boys and Elena toured it. Emma was too hot and opted for the shade. Those three also toured a fire truck. Emma again said no. She was tired.
