Pumpkin pickin'.....in Texas
It's October right? oh wait.....one more day. Well we're ready for it after our journey 1.5 hours outside of Austin to go to Sweet Berry Farm where my dad was in heaven rummaging through the mountains of pumpkins and fall gords. I was kept busy by the little itty bitty pumpkins that weighed less than a pound while my brother and dad insisted on getting 24 lb pumpkins.
It was a cute place with homemade jams, corn mazes, and pumpkin painting contests.
The wedding planning is coming along although I can't help feel lazy about it. I still need to print the invites and send them all out as well as buy a dress, buy Alex's wedding band, and of course arrange our living accommodations and plane tickets. We ALMOST bought tickets last week for approx. $1100 each roundtrip from Houston to Florence but then were haulted by my bro's girlfriend who's travel agent said it would be cheaper if we waited 'til January. This makes me nervous because I feel like we're now waiting too long and prices will become inflated.......any advice?
p.s. the picture of the hand painted like an elephant was from an email I just received from my aunt.....the artist is pretty incredible, he does it all himself!
