Pumpkin carving!

We carved four pumpkins for Halloween. Nate was totally grossed out by the inside, but Simon dug right in. And both loved trying to actually carve the shapes!

Visit from Grandma and Aunt Karyn

We had a great visit from Grandma recently, and Aunt Karyn came up for part of it as well. The boys had a wonderful time, and Grandma came prepped with tons of fun activities and even some awesome surprises for the boys. They did crafts and coloring, took selfies, went to the beach and the playground, had tons of fun with bath beads that grew into all kinds of shapes and on and on. Grandma even did some daycare runs with was a great visit! Here are a few of our favorite photos from the visit.

 Thanks for a wonderful visit, we all miss you!

Video catch-up

Wow, it's been a while! To start to make up for it, here are three videos of Nate being Nate. Disclaimer: Simon isn't much into being recorded on demand these days, hence the Nate-centric post. But there are lots of Simon pictures to share in upcoming posts!

Nate is a bona fide sports fan, and he has two favorite teams!

Check out Nate climbing like a big boy!

Finally, here he is sharing our collective feelings on a mushroom we found growing in the mulch:
