Ok so total catch up before the 1st… not likely, but some posts… this I can do.
Well another Halloween is done and dusted. This year may have been the last one the twins trick or treat at. They are growing up so quickly!
Echo’s costume was a combination of a Ren in the Glen (Post to follow on that fun time) purchase, and a tail made by Ken from faux fur we picked up at Joann’s. Bam – an adorable unicorn.
Trinity went smart and asked for a Koala onesie she could then wear as pj’s.
Emanuel went classic as a pirate.
Zander and Gavin did a repeat on their wizard as they humored mom.
This year part of Zander and Gavin’s schooling is to plan the themed meals for Echo. They seem to lean on the side of deserts. We may need to discuss balance next!
We decorated jars for candles.
And of course the pets dressed up too…
We had a lovely light afternoon and then in the evening were off to the Novak’s to trick or treat with Aidan (Stan Lee). It was great fun and a huge haul!!
The whole group
Of course, the evening ended with the big parent candy sort.
Not bad for a Halloween that seemed to creep up on us. We only got the pumpkin carved 2 days before!!
I even dressed up… well sort of. I had bought an amazing hat from a local vender… Three Bears – Fun Fur Accessories HERE. Paired up with a few pieces I had on hand, Ken felt it was very… Russian Mail Order Bride… I felt is was deliciously warm. In fact, I ordered a special order matching Muff from the same woman!!!
Really, there almost isn’t a point in posting a stand alone June blog post after my run down of the days of crazy. June is always busy but with Ken in charge of a major project at work that kept us near home and cancelled most of our exciting and travel required plans… not so much on the spontaneous and crazy. You can read all about the crazy days HERE, and the new baby in the house HERE.
In fact, June is VERY photo heavy what with the new pet in the house. So there is an additional MOMO post to follow this one HERE.
Of course Neko-chan still got love.
We did get back on our walk to the YMCA for morning programming and swimming, etc routine. The twins are too old for club (in fact, Emanuel is on the verge of too old himself) but the other 3 are finding it entertaining. We added run club on Thursdays during the day for the oldest 2 (hopefully they will run a 5K or 2 by the end of summer) and dance Friday nights for Miss Echo.
Hanging with mom before they head off for active time
Walking in the rain
We had multiple outings. Of course one was to the beach.
We had a fun time on a cool and windy day at a park with the Schwartz boys.
A picnic at another park by a lake with ANOTHER family of Schwartz origins.
Celebrated Father’s Day.
Lots of time spent in the front yard in the sun.
Many many walks.
A tattoo – you can read all about that HERE. As well as our busy June celebrations HERE.
We enjoyed life, June seems to have been a month of joy. It is nice to look back at it as the temperatures drop.
