Halloween Party

While we're awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, I thought I'd update the blog. 

We had our annual Halloween Party last weekend with beautiful weather!  It poured the day before and the morning of the party and suddenly the sun came out.  We enjoyed several treats plus a haunted house (which is now crushed by a tree down thanks to the hurricane), pirate ship, and ball pit.  Plus we played some games to entertain the little ones.

Ovarian Cancer 5k

Every year we run the Ovarian Cancer 5k in South Boston in honor of my mom.  Steve and I have not missed a year since 2001.  This year we had a great bunch of friends join us despite the drizzly weather.  Due to a computer glitch Steve actually came in first for the 60-89 age category.  Steve told him he wasn't quite that old yet but actually came in third in his age group (20-29 of course). He was pushing over 60 pounds of love also known as our children.  Great job Steve!

I also was lucky enough to chaperone my first field trip as a parent.  I've been on countless field trips as a camp counselor or a teacher but it was quite a different experience going with Lucas.  I has such a blast with the 3 and 4 year olds picking apples.  They take such joy in the simplest things and remind you what's important in life!
