HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Ok, its a little late, but better late than never, right?
So Bryten was our little Monkey this year, I was a witch and Brian was a crazy Pumpkin Head man.
Halloween is Brian's favorite holiday and he does an incredible haunted garage every year for the past 3 years. This year we had some great helpers from the neighborhood. They were pretty crazy!

One of the guys jumped out at from the recycling bin while people got hot chocolate and homemade rootbeer (thanks Larsens! :)) He scared more than a few.
My mom came up to take Bryten trick or treating with me. We were both witches, doesn't she look fantastic? Bryten picked out his trick or treat Elmo bag. He was carrying it around everywhere. He ended up loving trick or treating. He loved knocking on doors or ringing doorbells and then picking out candy. Most of the neighbors let him pick more than one. We only went to a few since his bedtime is at 7 but he got more than enough.
We took him to Kiddie Kandids to get his pictures done. He loved the sanitizer bottle and had to show us it multiple times.
He also really liked the pumpking and wouldn't let go of it.

Our little Monkey!

Northern Califonia

I am such a slacker. So I am finally updating my blog. We went to California to visit our fabulous friends Justin and Jovana. It was so much fun! They took us around UC Davis, where they are both getting their PHD in Electrical Engineering (ahh!) and to San Francisco, my favorite city in the US. Bryten loved hanging out with them and Justin even bought him a toy truck, which he still loves playing with. Thanks Justin!

Justin and Jovana in San Francisco. We love them, they are sooo awesome and the perfect hosts!

Justin is an awesome uncle! Bryten is learning where face parts are so he decided to show Justin where his were. Justin was very patient with him.

I think he just took something off the shelf that he wasn't supposed to and obviously he is very pleased with himself.

Bryten loved hanging around Justin. They became buddies really quickly.

Bryten pulling on Justins nose. Again, Justin was really patient!

Bryten later became obsessed with his ear. He just kept pulling it and notice his tongue is sticking out because he is concentrating so hard.

Here we are in San Francisco on a Bay Tour. Bryten wasn't fond of the boat since he couldn't keep his balance. Poor little guy!

He did love looking through the manholes. He thought it was a special window just for him.

Love them both!

Bryten loved the sea lions. He kept trying to mimic the noises they were making. We didn't get any pictures of him chasing the pigeons on the pier but he loved doing that. He would laugh hysterically whenever they would start flying away. It was certainly his favorite thing. Thanks Justin and Jovana for a fantastic vacation!!
