October Fun

The kids were off school for MEA weekend–we had a little family hiking shindig….and spent an October afternoon on the trail. For awhile it snowed big beautiful heavy flakes over the yellow trees. Great moment.

We found stuff, and the Cceaster carefully replaced the artifacts, of course.

Please note that Lars isn’t actually foaming at the mouth–it was a whipped cream chubby bunnies moment.

Later, during the pumpkin carving, I was feeling nostalgic about these kids growing up, lucky that they are so entertaining, glad that they let us adults in, so we can still be part of the party.

I’d just like to point out the pumpkin on the right—Kieran carved with the intentional lazy eye, maybe in honor of Abraham Lincoln or maybe some other notable lazy-eyed person, or maybe not.
