PA trip!

We had a beautiful weekend in Glenside with almost the whole family last weekend (we missed you Alden & Taylor!).  Alasdair worked most of the weekend, but the rest of us enjoyed cousin time (those boys together! my heart) and celebrated the impending arrival of Baby Bestor.  (Alden was quite confused that no one would tell him the baby's name.)  

Spectacular fall morning at Smith Playground

The girls and I took turns relaxing in Granny's loft.  Such a peaceful, sunny space.

Neither boy would let me push him on the swing, only Granny would do.

Alden attached himself to Uncle Ben, and got him to read books, watch soccer, play on the swings...

the 4 grandkids!

This is a fun age for Halloween.  :)

School Halloween parade, with animal masks they make in art class.  Adara was so happy that her afternoon preschool class got to participate with all the big kids.  She's holding hands with her new friend Alexis.

Emily dresses up like a cat at any opportunity, and after weeks of many costume ideas, Adara decided to be a cat too.  Alden had a few hand me down costume offers.  He was a train conductor last week at Romp & Stomp, but on Halloween morning he decided he really wanted to be Chewbacca.

Quick picture with friends at Miss Vicky's - Jurassic Park theme - and then trick or treating around the circle with Daddy while I gave out candy at home.
