On Saturday I took Ben to a baby shower.

He thoroughly enjoyed himself at the shower.

Saying "hi" to baby Will.
We met Rob and Avery back at Gigi and Pepaw's and watched the rest of the OU game. Ben was pretty happy to see his sister. He couldn't get enough hugs.
On Sunday we took the kids to the pumpkin patch. The weather was beautiful and they enjoyed running around. Avery took $1, which she said was to "pay a pumpkin."
We also had our annual brisket dinner on Sunday! It was Ben's first year to partake in the food, and I think he enjoyed it. He was partial to the mashed potatoes (naturally) and didn't care too much for the macaroni and cheese (crazy). Both the kids prefer regular, boxed Annie's or Kraft macaroni and cheese over fancy macaroni and cheese-more for us.

Ugh, I was miserable the rest of the evening, but it was so delicious!
The not-so-bright spot of the day: we had to say goodbye to Lynn and Will. They're moving to south Texas today and we probably won't see them for a while. We will definitely miss them. Avery consoled me by pointing out "we can just talk on the phone."
True. I guess.
