Parks and Pumpkin

In my last post I described a park we went to with Dallas, a couple days ago we went back and got lots of new pics. The parks around this area have many little statues cast in bronze, unfortunately I can't get Dallas to pose with every single one, so I have to pick my battles and decide which ones I want him next to more. Dallas has loved the park every time we manage to get out, and he's learning that when Josh is home he usually gets to go, and that when I pick up his shoes it means we're leaving. He gets very excited when he realizes we're going somewhere, dashing to the door before he even has the required shoes and socks on.

I also have a delicious recipe to share with you all. I found it one the back of the package and it looked so good I couldn't help myself, and made it that night. Since then it has been reduced to one lonely piece on a large plate, peeking hopefully out at me through its celephane every time I open the fridge.

I promise you will not be disappointed, it is very good. This has been great fun relating all these events, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to sign off...there is a Dallas "bug" crawling in my lap trying to help me type.
