13 year anniversary

We spent our anniversary hiking and learning about (and tasting) beer. I can't imagine much better than that!

Oktoberfest 2015

We had a great day for Oktoberfest this year! We celebrated fall, halloween, and the kids' birthdays, plus mine and Nana's!

We had fun doing crafts with Grammy.

Reagan and Jane figured out a smart way to bob for apples! They found the longest stems and bit those.

Candy corn fangs! I think he looks so tired because his birthday was the day before and he stayed up late with excitement.

Malcolm's 7th birthday

Malcolm ended up having his party on his birthday again this year. His theme was bunnies. The boys colored bunny pictures!

Jane played this fun game where she brought all the balloons upstairs and threw them down. The boys loved it!

We played "pin the tail on the bunny." The donkey version was common when I was young but this idea seemed new to the kids and they enjoyed it!

At night we ate dinner at Not Your Average Joe's, but none of us were very hungry!

Jane's 9th birthday

Jane wanted blueberry pancakes for her birthday breakfast and helped make them!
