Happy Halloween!

Zara was a quarkbeast (see the very excellent The Last Dragonslayer series by Jasper Fforde if you want more background info) and Amity was Murray, a little bat with a very big heart from Cynthia Rylant's Gooseberry Park (and it's sequel). Both kids went literary, and both suggest you read the respective books that inspired their costumes.

Poke-e-nose with the MMs

We spent a marvelous long weekend in the Poconos with our dearest friends the MMs. The older 3 in this picture have been friends since they were 3, 1 and 1 and the youngest member doesn't remember life without the other three. Sadly, however, she also doesn't remember how wonderful it was to have these lovely Canadians as our neighbors for a good 4 years. But we keep the dream alive and reunite every so often, and all is right with the world when we do.

Hiking Hightop

Some kids were at camp. Their grown ups, one younger sister, and 2 dogs went hiking. It was lovely.

Z and A got to spend some quality time with their cousin Nick. Much fun was had by all, culminating in Nick and Auntie Gabi's first music festival (Saline Celtic). Not Auntie Gabi's first music festival, though...

Last Day of School

And, with that, you are looking at graduates of Kindergarten and 5th grade. If one can be said to do such a thing.

Busking for BRIMS

BRIMS is taking a trip to Ireland, and fund raising to help support it at any opportunity. Here they are busking on the mall, and enjoying the beautiful spring weather.
