oh summer i miss you

i completely neglected to blog our annual north cascade trip this year....the end of summer was such a blur.  we had the stonich boys with us-  yes, four boys!  it turned out to be a ton of fun, and i really love herding a pack of boys.  they get along great and are so easy to work with.
the boys insisted on carrying hahn.  or maybe it was the other way around

preparing for the river float.  a must in the 90F weather!

oh luca.  you are hilarious

we went horseback riding!

we practiced the lasso technique.  not easy stuff

true had great form though!

beckham meets star wars

it's almost christmas, but i'm still thinking about our epic halloween.  aaron is the kinda guy who is all or nothing....and this year, he was ALL.  halloween night, raining, cold, but that doesn't deter a guy who is all in.
in an hour of time...
fire pit on driveway built.
stereo moved to porch.
then the fire.
then the halloween themed music.
then a bowl of choice chocolates for trick-or-treaters (no cheap candy here! like i said, ALL IN)
then a cooler full of beer for parents of trick-or-treaters (remember the all in thing?)
then...true and luca took off,  without escort by an adult, to enjoy trick-or-treating (big moment for those guys!)
both kids came back early in order to hang out at the bonfire and help give out candy.  they surrendered, as always, Twizzlers to me (i love them), and fresh baked baguettes to dad (yes, our neighbor made baguettes...how seattle is that?!).  true proclaimed 2016 the "best halloween ever!"
*these pics actually from the day before halloween, at the thomson home.  big greenwood ave party!

luca knows how to pose, that is for sure
