The cousins came over to help trick or treat. It was cold! So we made a big pot of chili to feed everyone and had candy for dessert. Rowan had a blast his first time out trick or treating....I swear this kid is going to run for President someday. He's a regular social butterfly. However, he didn't like Ryker's Hulk mask...he cried when he first saw it, but then when he realized it was Ryker he was fine.  Viv loved all the Halloween decorations this year. 

Cinderella and Prince Charming...the Prince wouldn't leave his crown on.

Back to School

School started!! Yahoo!! 

Captiva Island

We recently spent a week on Captiva Island in Florida. We rented a house and took both sets of grandparents. The flights were horrible traveling with small children...especially on the way home. But the vacation itself was fun! Vivian is already asking to go back! 

The Bird of Paradise

We had our own pool which was nice. It was very refreshing after a hot walk back from the beach. 

Rowan even liked it...and finally got used to his water wings! 

We tried recreating their sunset didn't go as well as the first few times! 

They found an injured sea gull...looked like it had a broken wing. Viv was very concerned. 

Mark napping on the beach...

The mornings were super calm and cool on the beach...the water looked like a lake. 

Rowan loved the beach shower...

We found lots of cool shells...

We walked over to the marina every night to see the manatees...

We had gorgeous sunsets! 

We went to see the crab races...we apparently all picked slow crabs. No one won from our party. 

Celebrating 15 years of wedded bliss! 

Haven't seen our professional pictures yet...but love the proof!
