Last weekend we were up at the ranch again. Avery met her Uncle Lane for the first time and got to hang out with the "social" heifers. These cows really like to hang out where the people are. You can usually find them up near the house. Omie was hoping to make friends quickly near her new home, and it seems she has made a good start.
Todd completed his first 1/2 marathon in under 2 hours, with 16 seconds to spare. Casey and I had fun cheering on our hubbies from the sidelines.

We've had a big week! Tuesday night the Davis family drove up to the ranch near New Braunfels. Todd left Avery and I there and headed on to Georgia for his adventure race. Avery and I had a good time visiting with friends and family. On Saturday, Avery accomplished another "first." She rolled over from her back to her tummy. I only caught the last bit of it on video, but take a look. The first video is her tummy to back roll when she was 2 months old. Today she rolled over right off of her blanket.
We finally returned to Laredo this morning, so this has been our longest time away from home. Todd survived his grueling adventure race in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia. His biggest complaints were the freezing temperatures and pouring rain. His team placed 60th out of 81. Next week he plans to complete his first half marathon. We'll be cheering him from the sidelines.
Avery's doctor has recommended that we start her on solid foods, so we'll be letting you know how that goes pretty soon.

We had a happy Halloween with two occasions to dress up. Halloween night Avery dressed as a cowgirl to great our trick or treaters. Dad took her next door for her first trick or treating experience. The next night we went to a costume party. I bet Aunt Casey wishes Avery had been around for her wedding! As you can see, Todd ended up as a Mexican cowboy and I was Martha Stewart. The night was fun, but ended too quickly for me and too late for Avery.
