We doubled our size since Thanksgiving 2020, hosting for the first time since 2018. It was a great meal, bookended with other Thanksgiving celebrations at school and with friends!
We may very well plan to make Meadowlark Botanical Gardens’ Walk of Lights a holiday tradition after a second great visit! It was just cool enough to feel like winter, but not too busy so we could take in all the displays and tick all the boxes off in the scavenger hunt!
The boys enjoyed back-to-back trick-or-treating with a Trunk n Treat put on by the county and then some nearby neighborhood fun on the big day – Halloween! The boys were committed to their Mario Kart theme and managed to score more candy than they could possibly eat in a year!

The pandemic put a hold on parties last year, so Owen had to be very patient for his first friend birthday party. The day came, and it didn’t disappoint! We had a bounce house, pizza and cake – all the ingredients of a perfect party!
