Hudson never ceases to make us laugh, including when he comes out of his room dressed for school.

Iron Man

We went to Costco yesterday and got a couple options of Halloween costumes / dress up clothes. Mommy likes the fireman costume best, but Hudson can't get enough of super heroes. So this morning, did I find my sweet boy? No! It was iron man watching cartoons. Quite something to wake up to, if u ask me!

Kissing an alpaca

We made our way this morning to Marble Falls, where we stumbled upon a little outdoor fair. Hudson couldn't resist getting up close and personal with an alpaca!

Hudson's First Day

Today was the first day of school for Hudson, and I loved everything about his new school.

He was so excited to go and see the trains and snakes ("they're just pretend, mommy"). He was ready to go an hour early, and happily played his new kazoo all the way to school (after "dropping trou" in the yard for a quick pee pee while I loaded the car).

I was so excited too. Here is Hudson as we walked into the school. So many people are rushing by that you can't blame him for not stopping to look at mommy!

Then we went to his classroom, and Hudson acted like an old pro. Since he'd been dying to go to school, I thought he'd be fine; but we all know how kids can turn on you! Well he was just great. Ms. Rosie helped him wash hands, and then he never looked back at me.
One reason I love Ms. Rosie is that she already said he was so smart. They learned the word NOCTURNAL today, and Hudson was the only one in the class to remember it later in the day. (And luckily, I got to hear it 15 more times throughout the evening.) He also played dress up and loved the tire swing.

I probably got more info about Hudson's day than at least a month in his old school. All in all, a great first day!

Fun Labor Day Weekend

We had such a great time with the Walkers at our house over the weekend, and it was just priceless to watch our kids play together. Of course we spent lots of time in the pool.

We also had some great meals and got to catch up about the "good old days," realizing it was our 10 year anniversary since they became our first Austin friends. Of course, we also had to take the quintessential bathtub shot. 

We're so grateful to them for taking the time to come visit us and make it such a fun weekend!
