Life Lately

A few days ago, our dear friends the G.'s came over. :) Phoebe, Jaden and I were especially thrilled because we got to watch their two little ones-- Tristan (5) and Lizzy (almost 2). They loved running around in our backyard and they did it for a couple of hours. :D

"Look at Auntie Jo!" :)

Aw.... :)

This photo was taken a different day, a few weeks ago (after home church). -- With my brother Caleb. :)

This was also taken several weeks ago, right before home church. :) 
This past Saturday, I helped Abby with her babysitting job. We were in charge of two very energetic boys (ages 5 and 3) for 8 hours, so I was pretty worn out! I am with the younger boy, Noah, in the photo. :)

This is another photo from several weeks back-- the meal after Bible study and singing. :) L-R: Luke and David P., Phoebe, Mark and Jordan P., yours-truly and Abby. Fore-ground: Adam P. :)

Lately, all of us kids (except Caleb) have enjoyed several bike rides on the local Campion Trails. It has been a lot of fun! So far, I think we have biked 27 miles or so (over three days time). :)

Autumn and the Park

 This morning Jaden and I took a ride over to one of the many parks near our home.  I took along the camera and snapped some photos of interesting sights. :)  Enjoy!

On our way...
I liked the 'texture' this clump of trees have from a far.

A cloudy day -- the weather is changing!

We saw three turtles!  They jumped into the water shortly after this photo was taken. :)

Looks stormy, doesn't it?

One of only a few trees that are actually changing color.  There seem to be a lot of Live Oaks around here, and they never change color.  :(

A lone leaf lying on the sidewalk.  It looks like a heart.

There are still flowers in Texas in November!

A white rose.

A knotted root.
The roots along the water-way.

The geese all congregated on the side of the hill. 

And Jaden had to ride the zipline a few times!  Fun! :)
