A Fall Photoshoot

Thanks to the talents of Paula Paiva Photography, we got to capture the beauty of the season (and us frolicking in the woods for a half hour). All we have to say is thank goodness for the nearby playground to use as a bribe. Victory was ours!

Fourth Time’s a Charm

It took a few years, but – man – Colin has embraced Halloween in all its glory! While a little of a slow start at the school Halloween parade, the boy let loose for trick or treating with buddy Aidan. It was 1.5 hours of running up and down hills and stairs until his Darth …
