10 years

We are trying to make the most of these beautiful golden autumn days.  The sunshine has held this week, so we've had another good haul from the garden.  Those beautiful sunflowers are still shining along, and giving us loads of seed heads for the chickens over the next few months.  
 Mom keeps making us go outside... I think she wants to take advantage of it while she can!

So there has been lots of playing, swords, capture the spiders, making fairy houses, making magic dust out of ground up sidewalk chalk... we manage to keep busy. 
 and have had some really lovely dinners outside too...  
Mom and Dad celebrated 10 years of marriage on Friday.  Our most amazing friends took me and Grace in for a night and we had the best time playing with our Joaquin and Esme... THANK YOU so very much Val, Ray and LiFong!
The folks got to spend a few hours at the climbing gym.  Having not been in a harness for almost seven years, they didn't do too badly.
 And got to follow up with a fantastic dinner at Le Pigeon where they stuffed themselves silly on all sorts of fantastic dishes including a yummy rabbit and eel terrine and fancy fois gras profiterole.  They haven't had such a night to themselves in a looong time and had a blast together.
 Saturday after our super wonderful sleep over, we headed to church to help make back-packs to fill with school supplies and send to the world relief program.  Dad and I were exceptionally good at threading the cord, I think we got on the hook to do all of them, which isn't really too bad.
 I got to model them in church today!  They got 40 cut out and over a quarter of those sewn up... all with at least four kids (us) and a dog running around... not too bad for a few hours.
 Mrs. Morelli was instrumental in keeping us from going too stir crazy.
 Until Dad finally took us outside to play in the play-yard.
After all that play-time, much of the rest of the weekend was dedicated to cleaning out the garage and the shed, and playing outside as much as possible.
 Taking Scooter on a much overdue walk.
 and enjoying the best Tomato Beef Chow Mein dinner ever... Dad did a fantastic job on this classic meal in honor of  the moon festival
September has been pretty glorious, Happy Autumn!
