Our Week

This week:

We enjoyed the nice, cooler weather by spending lots of time outside:

We spotted this little skeleton running around scaring all the neighborhood kids

Ryan has been telling us that he wants to be Voldemort, a skeleton, a spider, or a ghost for Halloween. We saw this skeleton costume at Walmart and Ryan seemed pretty excited about it so we got it for him for Halloween. When we got home we had him try it on to make sure it would fit. I just laughed when I first saw him in his costume, it was pretty cute. (He didn't really scare the kids...they were all having fun!)

On Saturday we went to the zoo and had so much fun! I'll post some pictures soon!

Along with school, Riley also started her dance class this month! They meet once a week and she has so much fun dancing and socializing with her friends.

Back To School

Riley had her first day of school a couple of weeks ago. She was really excited to finally start school again after having all summer off. Riley still has the same teacher as last year, but this year they meet in a different building.

Ryan was a little sad after we dropped Riley off. On the ride home he kept on asking "Where's Riley?". He wasn't sure what to do without her. He cheered up a little after we got home and noticed that Riley had left her CD player out. He ran right over to it and started playing with it.

After playing with it for a few minutes he decided he was bored and told me he wanted to go lay down and take a nap. I guess it's pretty boring without Riley around! He's always happy when it's time to go and pick her up from school.

Last month my family came to visit and we had so much fun! This was the first time that all the cousins have been together. Riley and Ryan loved seeing them and playing with them. They are always asking me when Cameron, Ethan, and Allie are going to come and visit again!

We all went to the Lauritzen Gardens and took some cute pictures
