Happy Halloween

This year for Halloween we had a ninja, leopard, witch, Rapunzel, ladybug, and dinosaur.  We walked around the neighborhood and the kids made out like bandits!   They were give a couple of full size candy bars and a gallon zip lock bag of candy each.  That is 5 gallons of candy!!  Plus they were give a lot of the small lunch size bags of chips.  I think those will last the rest of the year.  The kids had a good time and the weather was nice it was not too cold and no rain!

Out and About, Again

Today was another beautiful day and we went for hike.  It was a 3 mile hike (up and down).  We had a good time and pushed the kids pretty hard.  Reagan walked the entire way with no complaining.  At the end she did comment her legs were hurting and she was slowing down, but kept on trucking.  I am impressed at how she keeps up on these hikes without complaining.  We reached the mountain top had a snack and came back down.  Coming down is a lot faster tan going up.

Out and About

We went for a hike this morning.  The weather is still beautiful and we are going to try to take advantage of it before winter sets in.  This was about 10 minutes from the house and part of the East Coast Trail.  Nathan found some moose tracks and the girls built rock statues, there were 2 already started and the girls just added to them.  The Ocean Bay Sciences Center (part of the college) was right there, it is not open right now, but they have 3 harp seals they are researching and you can watch them from the observation deck.  The kids enjoyed watching them swim back and forth.  We even found a few blueberries left to pick and eat.
