Night Riding

With the early nights and the darkness, we have worked hard to come up with ideas to make the nights go by faster.

Fall Biking

We spent a lot of fall biking- to the fountain park, at holzingers and all over town. Emi has gotten to be so fast on her scoot bike and Peter is just a whiz on his pedal bike of course. Peter at one point this fall biked 7 miles with me while I ran around the lakes. Lainey loves riding in the backpack with us as well.

First Movie Trip

We took our first trip to the movies at the discount theater, the Rivoli, in LaCrosse. We saw Planes and the kids loved it and sat so nicely! We walked in to the previews which were a little loud and made Emi a little nervous, but she made her way in, ate her popcorn and said that she wanted to come back and sit in the "castle theater."

Happy Halloween!

 As usual, we had all sorts of Halloween Fun in Winona. Including, but not limited to:
 Halloween party with friends! Pinatas, bobbing for apple and Emi eating as many Cuties as possible were the highlights of that night.

 "Real Halloween"
This was the best I'm sure for Peter since he got to wear his train costume. He wasn't able to walk very quickly in it, so for the first time in Emi's life- she was able to outrun him. He was so sad that she was getting to all of the doorbells first... but the extra treats put into his smoke stack made up for it. I also wasn't going to dress up or dress Lainey up, but saw the Cinderella/Gus costume and I just couldn't resist!
 Emi was obviously so so so happy to be a cat. She just loved it.
 We decorated Mike and Julie's driveway with a Halloween train.
 Halloween at the library and the haunted stacks!

 Trick or treating with friends at SMU. These are the best two pictures I have of the group... Our entire group was friends of ours. This was the best thing ever! So fun for the kids to know everyone and for the parents to have friends to talk to. We love our "tribe" here in Winona.
