Weekend Treats

Some weekends bring special treats and feasts to the sight and senses. This weekend brought just that. The weather was perfectly fall! Activities abounded in the neighborhood. Everywhere you looked there was a special event happening. After a long walk along the green belt area, we ended up at the town center to meet our son for coffee. The plaza was filled with costumed dogs of all breeds for the 'Howl-a-ween' dog walk--what fun! There was Sleeping Beauty, a lobster, a squirrel and TX University supporter and this was just a few of the canines dressed in their finest.

Later in the day we attended one of the local high school's pumpkin patch parties--lots of small, medium, large pumpkins to choose; homemade root beer, lemonade, grilled hamburgers & hot dogs along with muffin walk, games galore, a pumpkin catapult (which was a hoot!) and since this was a fund raiser for the orchestra, a string ensemble was playing (one of their songs was Autumn Leaves!)
What a grand way to spend the afternoon!
The rest of the evening was filled with football and some knitting on mystery sock. This is a wonderful pattern!
