Last weekend we took our first trip to the zoo.
We went to the Point Defiance zoo and aquarium in Tacoma.
It was a bit gloomy, but it didn't rain! Dana loved looking at all the animals.
Blake mostly slept in the stroller.

There is a wonderful kid zone in the zoo - full of things to climb through...

and things to climb on...

and a great slide!
There was a petting zoo part where Dana got to feed some goats - so fun!

Happy Halloween!

Blake's First Halloween
He wore the same costume that Dana wore LAST year. We joined the West's for Trick-or-treating.
Dana and Lucas picked up the concept very quickly...
I knock on a door, stand here and look cute, and then I get candy!
By the end of the evening Lucas was pretty tired, so Dana gave him a ride home in the stroller.So much candy! She would not let us carry her basket for her.
This blue lolly-pop looks good...
Looks good all down the front of my costume!

We also went to our church Halloween party.

The kids had fun playing games, and Allen won the chili contest!

More cuteness...
Dana is really into Nemo right now - so jealous of Lucas' costume.

And Blake found his feet!

He also rolled over for the first time this week. He rolled from back to front right in front of Allen and me. It was a special milestone that I'm glad we both got to see happen live.
