Not a lot of great pictures over the last few months sadly. I guess that’s what happens when we’re so busy.
Redflare took the kids out to a ‘dinner with Santa’ event at the local fire station. They loved it.
The food wasn’t overly impressive in Newbie’s eyes, and Thunderer opted to just have a cookie. :p
Food wasn’t the main reason to go though, so it works.

We’re getting there! Halloween pictures are a go!
If you can’t tell, Superman is Thanos, I’m Gandalf, TJ is Spiderman, Newbie is a sloth, Little Miss is a dark fairy/angel, and Thunderer is a “puppy” (Scooby Doo was the only way we could pull that one off.)
TJ went and coordinated costumes with his girlfriend too. She went as Silk.

Sometimes the pictures speak for themselves and sharing cute moments of the kids at play is really all that’s needed. I think this is one of those times.
It’s tradition now that we go out to the local pumpkin patch and let the kids pick out their pumpkins.
It’s also tradition to be sure to grab a picture of everybody on top of a haybale while we’re there.
We also decided to catch a picture of ourselves. A nice way to update our fall facebook profile picture.
Once everything was picked out it was time to play a little bit before heading back. The teens decided to have a contest and see who could reach the farthers up a halbale after a running start.
It didn’t end as was expected.
Meanwhile, Newbie was quite fearful of the prospects of Thunderer driving…

I remember this October day pretty well. It was a lot colder than expected so we didn’t stay out long at all, even though they were bundled.
The swings didn’t provide enough shelter to the wind so they went to the other equipment.
Any outside time is better than none though.
Especially if these kinds of smiles are the reward.

Sometimes they’re just happy, candid shots of the kids that don’t really need much story behind them.
This is one of those.
Traditionally the local fourth graders go to some kind of history event at a local farm. Booths are set up, hands on activities and come rain, snow, or shine the kids go out and ‘experience history.’
It was Superman’s turn to go this year and he had a blast. I performed my usual chapperoning duties so I didn’t really have much time to catch many pictures.
His three favorite events from the day were probably the chariots…
Getting to see real armor…
And somehow talking me into buying him a couple sticks of rock candy.
A daddy and son outing that he really appreciated. (I enjoyed it too.)
