Our First Family Visit

 We had our first visit from family, Aunt Joan & Uncle John, and we were so excited!  We enjoyed gorgeous gardens and perfect weather just as fall is approaching.  The kids loved this hidden bench swing in an old tree.

 Syd couldn't get enough of the butterflies...

 ...and Royce was endlessly fascinated by the giant bumble bees.

 So happy to get to spend time with Aunt Joan & Uncle John.
Thank you for the visit, we hope to see you again soon!

Playing games before dinner got competitive!   Some chose brave strategies and were vocal about their intentions while others kept their lethal plans quiet.

Back to School 2012

This blog is a little behind but we will catch up!
 Beautiful views on the steps of a historic church close by.

 First day of school, 2012.  Favorite outfits perfect for the first day at a new school with Syd's zebra prints and Royce's purple Transformers shirt.

 Snuggling together to warm up on a cool morning.

So excited to ride the bus...good luck!
