McKinney Oktoberfest 2011

It's that time of year again! McKinney Oktoberfest was this past weekend. Scott, Addison, Gwynn and Tiffany were the only ones that could make it this year, so we definitely missed all the others that usually join us! Addison had fun eating her pretzel, watching the German dancers, and petting some animals in the petting zoo.

Greek Festival 2011

During our circuit of festivals, we went back to the Greek Festival for the first time since Addison was born. This year, Monty & Pop joined us. Addison had a great time eating her pita bread and watching the Greek dancers. Opa!

Balloon Festival 2011

We decided to check out the Plano Balloon Festival this year for the first time. It started early at 6:45 a.m., and unfortunately the balloons were not able to take off due to the weather. Addison enjoyed looking at all of them, and playing with Brinley, Tyce & Hudson.

Fall Wreath

I have become addicted to Pinterest lately (like almost everyone I know), and it inspired me to make a new fall wreath for our front door. I bought the wreath from Home Goods, which included everything but the ribbon and letter. My mom helped make the bow and tie the ribbon around, and then I painted a wooden G with brown and gold polka dots.

Italian Car Festival

Last weekend, we ventured out to the Italian Car Festival in Grapevine. Addison enjoyed looking at all the fancy cars, but not as much as Scott probably did. :) Afterward, we enjoyed lunch at Rainforest Cafe. Addison wasn't too sure about those gorillas that danced every once in a while, but she enjoyed playing with the smoke and rain behind our table.
