Road Trip!

On our way to the Pumpkin Patch last Saturday, my dad mentioned he wanted to take a drive north to see the pretty leaves changing colors. I said I didn't think they were ready yet, but he insisted his friend had already taken TWO day trips north to see the pretty fall leaves. We ended up leaving the Pumpkin Patch early because the kids were ready for a nap, so as soon as we got on the road I drove north in search of pretty leaves.

Sitting in the passenger seat, Dad asked if I had a state highway map.

My reply?

I'm a Richardson. I have five.

One is good. Five is better. My dad's unoffical motto in life.

But that's another story.

It was a nice, slow drive. No rush to get anywhere. We had a cooler of cokes and plenty of food because we had planned to have that picnic lunch. We made stops at furniture stores, parks...

interesting sights, and of course, Mt. View. It was just the right balance of driving and stopping to keep everyone {including the babies!} happy.

When we finally made our loop back home, mom helped me give the kids a bath, put on their PJs, then we headed back home "home".

Dad enjoyed riding for once and being able to take in everything we passed. It was a fun day of making memories, but dad did admit we were a bit early for the changing colors. ;)

Sugar and Spice or Snakes and Snails?

Poll has closed. It's a BOY!!!

Take the poll located on the right side of the screen. Will we be having another baby boy or a baby girl? What do you think?

If it's any help, I haven't had any dreams {like I did with Raegen, dreaming I was having a boy} and I just don't have that "feeling" with this baby. I did have severe morning sickness that lasted through week 15, quite unlike my mild morning sickness that ended at week 12 with Raegen. That info may help or confuse you more! I'm anxious to see what everyone else thinks we're having.

Is baby #3 a boy or a girl?
