hello, septmeber

goodbye august! you were so unbearably hot!
hello, september! i welcome your football games, pumpkin spice lattes, D's 30th bday! and a few Austin trips.

we went to the first ut football game of the season! although i'm an aggie, its still really exciting to be at any college football game! cheerleaders, band, crowds! 
the ut golf team won the national championship of the ncaa, and this is their head coach and the trophy! 

the tri rock triathlon series came to town lake in austin and was on labor day. several months ago, dad convinced D to sign up. so he's been working and training so hard and the weekend was finally here! he did amazing! it was really hot, and his first open water swim, but he was a champion! i think he's hooked. i'm one proud wifey!

what are you looking forward to in september? and can you not wait for this??
