This past Thursday, we ventured up to Dawson County for our annual visit to Burt’s Pumpkin Farm. Last year when we went, the girls weren’t quite two months old, and were more interested in sleeping than looking at the pumpkins. This year, they are walking, babbling, and running, so we thought they’d have a little more fun this time.

Erin seemed to think the pumpkins were alright by her:

Grace, however, was a little more tentative:

They soon decided it was time to explore:

In all, I think they had a good time. Mommy and Daddy did, at least.

It’s no secret that mom and dad are big Georgia Tech football fans, so it was only a matter of time before the girls made it to their first game. We all ventured out to the Tech-Duke game this past weekend for some tailgating and football. The girls were the life of the party. Everyone loved seeing them and playing with them at the tailgate.

On to the game! The girls slept for the first quarter, but didn’t stay asleep for long. Mom and Erin had fun at the game.

Our friends Rob and Elizabeth held Gracie for a little while. We enjoy sitting around friends in our section of the stadium because we can pass the girls around a little bit!

At best, we figured the girls would make it three quarters and sure enough, by the middle of the third quarter, Gracie had seen enough. At least by then Tech had the game in hand, leading Duke 17-0. We made our way out of the stadium and on to the grandparents for the rest of the day. It was a lot of work to take them to the game, but we had a lot of fun. Maybe next game they’ll be old enough to walk themselves around the stadium.
