Hoffmans Playland


We took the boys back to the kids playland after work Friday - they love it there!
You can tell it's almost Fall in NY, it's jacket weather. Thomas liked the 4x4 driving game, and took his responsibilities as driver VERY seriously. Check out the video below, his little hands make every turn perfectly!

Biker Boys



The boys love riding their bikes - Thomas is riding his two-wheeler so well now and will tell anyone who listens that he can ride 'without trainin' wheels! - 'Cause I'm 4 years old!'

Look Ma, No Training Wheels!

Thomas has been asking for awhile now to try riding his bike without the training wheels. Tonight, we decided to give it a try. It took many, many runs up and down the front yard and street (and Steve's got the aching back to show for it!) But he got the hang of it pretty quickly!

Andrew and I retired inside for the remainder of the practice, but after this video was taken Thomas graduated to riding up and down the street all by himself! What a big boy!

Not to be outdone, Andrew has a new trick to show off as well - somersaults!

Lishakill Hike

This weekend we ventured out for a hike at the LishaKill Nature Preserve. The bugs and humidity nearly turned us back, but we were rewarded at the finish with some splashing in the creek and throwing rocks (the favored pastime of the boys). I'm sure its a walk we'll be repeating, once it cools down a bit.

Hey, you call this hiking? Wet feet on the way back up hill call for desperate measures.

Vegas

We had a great trip to Vegas, with lots of time spent in the pool and catching up with family - we didn't even lose TOO much money!

Joel and Brooke had a lovely vow renewal ceremony and we were happy to be a part of the celebrations.
