Go Dawgs!

On Saturday, I went to my nephew Garin's football game, but this time, I remembered to bring my camera. Boy was I glad I did! I was able to get some great shots of my little Bulldog in action.

 Oh hey there stud!

I see you #23!

This is his team, as the other team was attempting an extra point after their touchdown. It was comical, and so cute at the same time!

I am SO proud of him, and he certainly has a great LOVE for this game. I know he has many years ahead of him. The BEST is yet to come!

Brother was there too, rooting his BIG brother on! He is always so proud of him after each game. 

Love these two with my whole heart.

Keep up the great work Gar Bear. I love you!

Our Trip to Bates

This morning, we headed out super early to enjoy our yearly trip to Bates Nut Farm to visit the pumpkin patch and go pumpkin picking! Ell was so excited to go to the "pumpkin catch", and woke up around 5:30 asking if it was time to go yet! SO…. we headed out to breakfast and were there as soon as it opened to enjoy a fun filled morning at the farm!

We had such an awesome time, and were able to do so many fun things this year. We skipped the tractor ride because the line was insane, and also the corn maze since we did that last year. But, we had a chance to do so many other things that have been too crowded in the past. 

Ell was in HEAVEN!


We saw TONS of pumpkins!

Ell picked out three perfect pumpkins for us. We can't wait to carve them.

We visited the petting zoo to feed the goats, chickens, and pigs.

Waited in a very long line to ride the ponies!

" Let's go! I'm getting super frustrated Mama!"

Finally! Time to ride. 

She was obsessed with the slides. These pictures are the best! This sweet girl is fearless.

Lots of rides on Dada's shoulders!

And, just for fun, here's Ell each year we've visited the pumpkin patch since she was born. 
(Yes! She wore the same dress two years in a row! I LOVED it.) 

We had such a fun day today Ell. We love you so much, and cherish these special moments with you.

See you next year Bates!

On September 25th, four years ago, I finally became Mrs. Garcia. It was one of the happiest days of my life(until we had Ell), a day that I will never forget.

Last Year, I found myself reminiscing about our beautiful wedding day my looking through all 700 of our wedding photos. This year, I decided to look back at our engagement photos, almost 5 years ago. Gosh time flies by quickly! I still remember this afternoon so vividly. I was so happy and excited to marry this man!

Happy Anniversary my love.

I feel so grateful to have you as my husband, and know that our journey has only just begun. I am so proud of the man you are, and have loved every minute of our journey as husband and wife. Every day I am amazed by the way you love me (and Ell). You are everything I could have ever dreamed of in a husband and father. I am so lucky.

Te amo.
