We also went up to Dallas last weekend for the Nascar race. Jake and his co-worker "roughed it" in a brand new RV at the campgrounds of the speedway all weekend while Nathan and I stayed at grandma and grandpa's house. My dad and I met up with Jake at the race on sunday. It was Jake and I's first Nascar race experience and it was unbelievable how fast those cars go! TV definitely does NOT give that sport justice. I have a new appreciation for the sport as I watch it on TV now. Here are some pics of us at the race:

Of course we had to "make" the guys take a picture with the show girls.

We decided to take a small trip to Marble Falls (about an hour outside of Austin) today and go to a Fall Festival with some of our friends. It is such a pretty drive out to Marble Falls going through the Hill Country. We had a good time even though it was SO hot! It definitely didn't feel like "Fall". Nathan had his friends Luke and Lily there with him to enjoy the festivities. Nathan got to play around in the pumpkin patch and pet some baby goats. Well I say "pet", but really hitting and pulling are more accurate. haha The kiddos (and the parents) only lasted an hour in the heat. Nathan's little cheeks were so red. We decided to get reprieve from the heat at Suzanne and Shauna's parents house (they live in Marble Falls). We all felt much better lounging in the A/C and eating brownies and ice cream. :-)
Here's Jake, Jeff and Mark testing their childhood slingshot skills.
Nathan in the pumpkin patch. He really didn't know what to think of all the pumpkins at first. But it did make a nice little seat for him. :-)
This is the best picture I could get with all the kiddos. As you can see, the kids were much more interested in the pumpkins than pictures.
This is the "Mom it's so hot out here" picture.
Petting a baby goat.

I will say, however, that there was a nice glimpse of sunshine on this gloomy OU day when unranked Kansas State routed Texas (41-21) in Texas' own house! Next week's OU v. TX game will be interesting!!
On a very different note, but still related to football, Jake and I had an interesting experience last night while coming home from dinner. We passed a high school in Pflugerville and noticed that there was a "football game" going on, but we knew that that particular high school didn't have a game that night and when we looked closer, there were TV cameras everywhere on the field. I don't know how many people out there watch Friday Night Lights on NBC, but it's filmed here in Austin (particularly Pflugerville) and they were filming last night. Anyway, long story short, Jake and I just walked up on the set in the stands to see if we could see the stars of the show (which we did) and one of the production ladies asked if we wanted to be part of the fans so we put on some Dillon Panther T-shirts, signed our waivers and became instant tv show stars. haha No, really we just became another nameless face in the crowd yelling "DEFENSE". :-) But maybe, just maybe you can catch a glimpse of us on the show.

Ironically, Nathan had his 9 month well-check on tuesday morning and the doctor said he had perfect health......famous last words. That night was when the snot storm hit.
He weighs 21 lbs 4 oz and measures 29 in. He is in the 75 percentile for height and weight so he's a big boy for his age.
Here's a clip of him crawling
Mommy, can I go outside?????

1) My Granny (dad's side) is recovering from a triple-bypass and valve replacement heart surgery. It is a miracle she survived the surgery (the doc said 1 in 3 chance) and has a long road to recovery.
2) My Grandma (mom's side) is having surgery on her lung monday (9/17) to remove a cancerous tumor (which has reappeared after 4 years of being in remission).
Thanks for the prayers!!
