Miscellaneous aka A Busy Day

Too many things happened on this day, especially considering it was the day before we left for vacation-- timing is everything.

This is Phin's fish, Moh.

We took some pictures as we walked home from Phin's gymnastics class. This tree is in a yard up the street from us, and I hope to take pictures in the leaves each year (last year was the first), as long as we live here. It is my favorite fall tree.

Ahhh, the look of cooperation...

Silas had his first trip to the ER (nothing serious, he was fine). Phin has still never been to the ER, so I'm pretty sure Silas is going to keep me on my toes. :)

Then we got out of the hospital in time to scramble to dinner with Aunt Linda and Great Grandma Vollbracht at the McLane's.

Phhheewww... exhausting day... tomorrow we're up early for a 7 am flight to Orlando...

Indian Summer and Jackolanterns

On Tuesday, we headed to the park after lunch to enjoy the 70 degree weather we fleetingly got to enjoy this week.

Phin wanted to build a lean-to. He learned about them on PBS Kids.

Tuesday evening, Caleb and Phin carved a pumpkin while I took Silas out for a run.

3D Experience

Last Friday, Caleb took Phin to see the Toy Story double feature in 3D. So much fun. Caleb said Phin kept trying to reach out and grab the 3D stuff as it "came towards him."

Adventure #2

Adventure #2 was Caleb's RV lighthouse tour or New England with his Grandma V., brother Joel, sister-in-law Kate, nephew Blake, and cousins Courtney, Andrea, and Aaron.

They got a flat tire on the way back to New York to drop off the cousins at the airport.
