Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Here are some pictures from our day...

Aki at the zoo
First mommy took Aki to StrollerFit at the zoo. Here she is modeling her banana suit.

Later at home, we got a package that had this neat hat in it. They used some little jars and tubes of face stuff for mommy to cushion the hat.

Owen not too thrilled about trick or treating
After daddy came home, we went trick or treating with Varna. I was not in the mood.

Bunny in our lawn that looks like Twinkle Vegas, the wild school bunny
When we got home, I perked up because we saw a bunny on our lawn. It looks like Twinkle Vegas, the wild bunny who lives at school.

Trick or treating at home
Trick or treating at home. No one's coming so I am going to play a trick.

Owen is giving Aki a back rub
Inside, I had to give Aki a back rub since she was so busy handing out candy and didn't come trick or treating with us.

Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

ICA Family Day

Last Saturday mommy and Aki went to a MOMS Club convention extravaganza and left daddy and me at home to fend for ourselves. So instead of moping around home, Aunty Sarita and Ronak took us to the ICA with them. As usual, the art was awesome, and the activities were really fun too.

Here I am coloring bubble wrap with markers

Bubble wrap printing
Which I stamped on paper to make this!

Owen's new binoculars
Out in the lobby they were giving out binoculars for us to decorate. Here's mine.

Running in the Founder's Gallery
We went to see some art upstairs, but as usual this was our favorite place... Until the guards came and told us that we couldn't run on the grates anymore.

A train
Later I drew a train

By the way, if you ever get a chance to see art by Tara Donovan, do. She takes stuff like straws and cups and makes really fun things out of them. They look much better in person than in the pictures.

Ezra's Birthday

A couple of weekends ago we also went to Ezra's birthday party. It was at a little gym called the Little Gym.

Ezra had birthday cupcakes! I ate the frosting.

I'm glad I got to go to Ezra's party. It was lots of fun for me and for Aki. Too bad daddy was away in "Cincinnati" wherever that is...

Pumpkin Fest

A couple of weekends ago we went to the big Pumpkin Festival where they were trying to break the world's record for most carved pumpkins. 

At the Pumpkin Festival
Lots of pumpkins

Scary pumpkin
This was the scariest pumpkin there

Scar Eye
I liked this one's eye

Funny colored pumpkin
Little and light

We didn't stay too long. This year they moved it from the park to the Government Center, so there was a lot of cold wind blowing through, and I was still getting over my stomach bug. We saw lots of nice pumpkins though!

Last night we carved our pumpkins. After daddy gets through with the pictures, I'll post ours...

Loot from Kung Kung and Grandma

We got some books from Kung Kung and Grandma last week. More stuff about Halloween! They sent a book about a lady named Amelia Bedelia. Daddy knew all about her, but it's the first time I'm reading about her. She's pretty silly. Thanks, Kung Kung and Grandma!

Fall Festival at Drumlin Farm

A couple of weekends ago we went to the Fall Festival at Drumlin Farm. Actually we set out to go apple picking, but when we got to our favorite farm, the line was too long so mommy and daddy didn't think we would have a good time. I'm glad we went to Drumlin though because it was super fun!

It's getting cooler
It was kind of cold. Aki had to cover up with this blanket.

I got to paint it!

9 Piglets

Going on a hayride
Then we went on a hayride pulled by a giant tractor!

Other fun stuff was watching huge mules pulling a wagon, looking at the chickens again, and having warm apple cider. We like farms!

Clark's Trading Post

Ok, so we're going a little out of order here, but I still wanted to catch you up for the last few weekends...

After Story Land, Ronak and his family had to go back to Boston, so we went to see another place by ourselves. This one was called Clark's Trading Post. It's a place where they train bears to do tricks, and so mommy and daddy took us to see the bear show.

With the stuffed bears at Clark's Trading Post
Stuffed animal bears (not real bears that were stuffed)

This car is just my size
I got to ride in something called the Wolfman's car

Daddy shut me in!
And stay in the Wolfman's hotel

Later we went on a train ride around the river.

The big blue engine that pushed us

There was actually a Wolfman! He didn't like us riding a train by his secret mine.

The bear show was after that but we didn't take pictures. Let's just say, I can do pretty much everything those bears can do.

On the way back home to Boston we drove into the hills to see some pretty trees.

We had a great time in New Hampshire. Maybe we can go back in the spring?

Good luck, Daddy and SteveSongs Concert

Daddy's running his first Half-Marathon this morning. And it's also the first time we're not going with him to watch him finish the race. Both Owen and I are still under the weather... hence no pictures. Big brother Owen is still recovering from the stomach flu, and I woke up yesterday with a runny nose. Mommy's home taking care of us while daddy's running his race. Good luck, daddy! Hope you fast so you can come back and play with us!

Owen felt well enough yesterday morning so we went to see SteveSongs in concert. Mr. Steve is one of Owen's favorite musicians. I had fun dancing with mommy for the first half of the show. The dancing must have worn me out since I fell asleep for the rest of the show. Here's a music video from PBS Kids of Mr. Steve.

I'm a bunny

Mommy made me this Bunny Tail hat a while back, but it had been too big until now. I love it, don't you?

Story Land!!!

To help celebrate Daddy's birthday we went on a trip last weekend up to New Hampshire. Ronak and his mommy and daddy came too. We had a sleepover, visited Story Land (!!!) and Clark's Trading Post, and had a great time together.

We all stayed in one big apartment up there.

Are those trick candles?

Synchronized somersaults
As you can imagine, the sleepover didn't involve much sleep until the two of us were separated

Then Aunty Sarita piled all 7 of us into her car and we went up to Story Land. I wasn't sure about this place at first.

Uncle Sameer checking out Humpty Dumpty
Is this guy okay, Uncle Sameer? He looks like he might need a shunt...

But then we got to the rides and everything was cool.

Antique car ride
Driving an "antique" car around the track. Now can I drive the Prius?

Dutch shoe ride
Flying a giant shoe is always fun

So we all went
This ride I did not like. You can just barely make me out in the front, or as I now know it, "scary" seat.

Turtle ride
Or this one was scary too, surprisingly. What could be scary about a giant turtle giving us a big hug?

Tractor ride makes sounds
Okay, this tractor one is more my speed

Bye Story Land!
Story Land was fun!

Ok, next time I talk about bears and Wolfman!
