Happy Halloween!

H experienced his first Halloween today and although he will not remember it, we had lots of fun. The day started with a Halloween hike up in Tilden. H was planning to wear his skeleton costume but peed in it before we had a chance to hit the trail. Then we spent the afternoon moving around and playing (and doing laundry) while Daddy worked at the office. (H is really moving around these days. Imagine a large inchworm...) Then after we picked up Daddy at work we got down to the real Halloween fun. H got to "carve" his first pumpkin this evening. It was a lot of fun to watch him squeezing the guts and trying to eat everything in sight.

Seeing how much fun we were having, our neighbor came out to say hello and offered us the rare treat of taking a family photo. 

Then a fun Halloween flying session with Daddy.

And to cap off the evening, H went trick or treating for the first time and he knew just what to do.
