While we all had a great time last year, O was an even more willing participant in the fun of Halloween. With two school parades (one of which went better than the other), a block party and 90 minutes of trick-or-sprinting, it was quite a day!
October is a special month for many reasons, especially with O and C’s birthdays on the calendar. We celebrated with both friends and family to mark the special days! Colin’s Ninja Warrior friend party was a huge hit, while we were spoiled following by having family come to the house to honor both boys.
Some weekends are more packed than others. With fall in full swing, we were ambitious one weekend to fit in a local fair, a campfire about “bats and blood suckers” and Disney on Ice. Here are the highlights!
C’s very first friends have been getting together at least once a year since they were born, celebrating being brought into the world. As they all finally headed to elementary school this fall, the once-babies were totally big kids, full of energy and fun. Here’s to another great year!

Like last year, we enjoyed a fun 4th at home with friends! We had the extra fun of sparklers and a few fireworks that were a huge hit!
The heat of summer still seems to come as a shock, even with a few years in the Middle East under our belts. Luckily, we have friends with a pool membership to have fun and cool off!
We were one with the animals for a birthday party at Roer’s Zoofari. We explored via bus and on foot and got to feed animals big and small. Here are some of the highlights!
