Treat! Yes, today Liam and Grant went out begging for candy. Grant really got into the swing of things. He was talking up a storm. This evening was the first time he ever said "trick-er" and "thank you". He also said bye-bye several times, which he started saying for the first time last week.

When we got home, Liam helped hand out candy and Grant played with all our mini pumpkins. Then we went in to eat some candy. Grant really enjoyed his chocolate. I don't even know how many Liam ate, but I was relieved to see that some of what he ate included fruit snacks. :)

This morning, I helped out at Liam's school party. The kids all paraded through the school and showed off their costumes. Liam behaved very well and I think he enjoyed having me around. He is really lucky to have such great teachers and a good class of kids. They all seemed to get along pretty well for five year olds!

Dashing Dinos

Both Liam and Grant got to run in the Dino Dash this year - and mommy too. Only I ran the whole 5k, then hurried home to pick up the boys so they could run in the mini-dash and diaper-dash. We ran into our friends, Dan and Annie, and their son Aidan. Liam and Aidan sure make scary dino faces!

Days of Yore

The first somewhat sunny day after weeks of rain, we decided to do something outside today and headed to the Michigan Renaissance Faire. Despite the fact that it was actually quite chilly and we had a bit of a late start and even took a wrong highway, once we were there we had lots of fun!

No surprise that everyone thought our little Viking and handsome Knight were just too adorable!
