70 degrees in November

Today was just an amazing day.

Beautiful. Crisp. Warm.

These are the grape vines on our back deck.

It was a beautiful day to go to the park.
Les Grove Park in Auburn.

This is a fun park with lots of stuff to explore. Like musical instruments.

THIS is why we get the flu shot every winter.
It's a very modern park that is accessible to everyone.
There's no 'wrong' way to play with the equipment.
We played and then ate lunch.
Until we were all tuckered out.

Happy Halloween

This Halloween was a busy day!
Trick-or-Treating: Dana was Nemo and Blake was a giraffe.
We also went to "Trick-or-Truck" at the Maple Valley Community center.
Blake didn't mind walking around in his costume... Dana really didn't want to wear Nemo.
They had a great assortment of trucks: a dump truck.
Blake driving a school bus.
Dana in the school bus.
Of course, a fire truck!
Mor Mor and Grandpa John joined us.

We started our day with the Halloween party at our church.
Dana making her treat bag.
Here's Dana playing the 'fishing' game.
It was so great that the whole party was planned and put on by our 4th & 5th grade students. They did an awesome job.
Daddy was a Rangers Fan. Scary.
On Saturday we enjoyed dinner with our good friends.
Dana found this inflatable toy and decided it worked best on her head.
Silly girl.
