The Pumpkin Farm

    Last Saturday, 10/17/09, we took Deacon to Sweet Berry Farms right outside Marble Falls, TX.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day, and apparently everyone thought so since the place was very crowded.  They had face paintings (not a good idea since Deacon rubs his nose a lot,) pumpkin painting, corn mazes, pony rides, goats, donkeys, delicious strawberry popsicles and strawberry lemonades, and a hayride.  

Deacon and some very large pumpkins.


A cool old truck.

Deacon and another little boy running while their parents held their place in the ridiculously long pony ride line.  It took an hour and 20 minutes before he got to ride.


Deacon doing what he does best... running!!

I guess it was worth the wait since this was his favorite part.

Deacon's First Game

     These are a couple shots from Deacon's first game on 10/02/09.  Not that anyone is keeping track, but his team won 3 - 0 or 3 - 1.  Don't worry, I'm not going to post pics from every game.  I just wanted people to see his uniform, and see him getting into the game.

Deacon "willing" the ball to move?

Awaiting instruction from the coach.

Go Deacon!

St. Louis Trip

     On Friday, September 25th, we left right after work to drive to St. Louis.  We figured we had to go to the Rams' game on the 27th because they were retiring David "Deacon" Jones' number, our son's namesake.  Yes, we are crazy, but in my defense when I agreed to go the game I was thinking "No problem, it's only a 6 hour drive."  Yah, from TULSA!  And  I do not live in Tulsa anymore.  So, really it was a 14 hour drive.  Yikes!  But it was worth it.  We met my sister, Stephanie, and my brother-in-law, Robert there on Saturday afternoon.  We had a great time!!  If you get the chance to go, definitely stop by Goody Goody Diner.  That place is awesome.  Good food, reasonable prices, and best breakfast in St. Louis.

When we got to our room, we discovered it came with free pizza!  Unfortunately, it had been laying out for about 12 hours and had some pieces missing.

We don't have TV at home, can you tell?

What was this expression?

The reason we were there.

The guy in all white is David "Deacon" Jones.  We don't have enough zoom on our camera obviously.

Chris' awesome photography skills.
