Bill's New Toy

Sometime at the beginning of August, Bill had one of his dreams come true...He bought a Harley! He's wanted one for as long as I've known him (and then some).

I realized today, that I haven't shared this news on the blog - or posted any pictures!

A couple weeks ago the Bollenbachers stopped over for a visit, and Bill gave Ryanne a quick ride...then we goofed around a little with pictures....

Lincoln Ridge Fall Festival

A couple weeks ago, on a very beautiful Sunday afternoon, we went to Lincoln Ridge for their Fall Festival (I don't know if that's the correct name, but that's what I'm calling it). One of the first things the boys wanted to do was ride in the barrels
This is what they called "Straw Mountain" They climbed the straw bales, and went down the slide dozens of times...until we dragged them away!
All the boys got a kick out of the "Punkin Chuckin" ...especially Bill! I have to admit, it was entertaining to watch them launch pumpkins and then see them explode when they hit the ground!

The Pumpkin Playground

Next up was the corn maze. I wasn't sure the boys would enjoy this, but we let them lead the way and they got a kick out of it. A couple times, Bill jumped out of the corn when they weren't expecting it, and scared the living daylights out of them!!

I had to take a picture of all the mums sitting out! They were beautiful all together like this!
Our last adventure was riding the haywagon out to the pumpkin patch, to pick out perfect pumpkins.

Weighing, and paying for our pumpkins

And here's what they did with the pumpkins when we got home:

Go Longhorns!

The boys are playing flag football this fall through the YMCA....and they really like it! Which means, of course, we like it too! We really get a kick out of watching them. ...and what we think is a great-big-bonus is Hutch Ridenour and Luke Bollenbacher are on the same team! How fun to sit with friends and cheer on all our kids! Hutch wasn't here this day :( Hopefully, I'll get a picture with all four boys before the season is over.

Bill with his parents, Nancy & Big Bill. It was a beautiful day last Saturday, so they came out to watch.

GO LONGHORNS!! :) (Never really thought I'd say that!!)
