Leif's Birthday Party (+ some others)

These two photos are non-birthday party related, but very cute. Finn and Leif like to rush off to fight fires together on the fire truck (first photo) and Finn thinks that reading to Gracie will help heal her torn ACL ("poor Gracie. "What People Do All Day" will make her feel better.")

Yesterday we had Leif's first birthday party, which was a rousing success.

Erin and Esmae play with Legos:

Jasper does the same, sort of:

A fearsome foursome of pinata-bashers: Tenzy, Andre, Finn, and Erin.

Uncle Sam & Aunt Nicole in their colorful costumes:

Esmae as pink animal of some sort:

Anja as a bear:

Babies were overjoyed to be in the leaf pile!

Sunday at the park and beach

In an effort to make the absolute most of the temperate weather, we spent yet another day almost entirely outside. Here is the evidence:

Spoiler alert!

If you want to wait until next weekend to see the boys in their costumes, don't look below. We're dressing them up as campfires this year (note the awesome hats, complete with marshmallows). Anyway, the costumes are super cute and we were the hit at "Boo at the Zoo" today. Lots of oooohs and aaaaahs.

Here's a photo from a hike with Grandpa this week. We can walk here from our house and see the beautiful fall colors.

Fall in our yard

These shots were all taken today in our yard. It's very beautiful right now. You can also check out Leif's new top teeth. Very cute.

Iowa weekend

Team Pearson was in Iowa this weekend for the James/Kelly wedding. Sadly, we don't have any photos of the wedding or the boys in their cute dress clothes (you try taking photos while chasing the boys around - Mickey was the best man, so he was busy), but we do have these shots of playing outside. The weekend was a blast - Finn rode his new bike from Grandma and Grandpa, we spent time at the "workout" park down the path, swam at the YMCA waterpark, read books, went to a fantastic pumpkin patch, fed goats, etc. It was a fabulous weekend with great fall weather. The light was perfect for photo-taking, so enjoy!
