Halloween 2016

 Halloween was a beautiful night this year!  Too bad it was a Monday night - it would have been more fun if we didn't have school the next day!  Aidan was zombie Trump, Emmy was a bucket of popcorn, Aoife was a phone and Declan was a gold Power Ranger.  Everyone was very happy with their costumes although Declan was a little freaked out by Aidan's makeup!!
Both Emmy and Aidan decided to Trick or Treat with friends this year so we only had Declan and Aoife to walk around with.  We joined up with the Parishes and had a fun time!

Halloween at School

 Declan's school celebrated Halloween with a special snacktime and a costume parade around the entire school block!  This year was MUCH more successful than last year's Halloween.  Declan was happy to put on his costume (a gold Power Ranger) and enjoyed the entire day!!  Brendan met us along the parade and Declan was so happy to see him!

Potomac Overlook Park

 Declan and I took an afternoon stroll through Potomac Overlook Park.  Soon enough it will be too cold to enjoy these kinds of outings - we've got to enjoy the summer while we still have it!  We also had an exciting encounter - we got to see a baby flying squirrel that had landed on a man's shoulder and refused to leave!  The naturalist rescued it and will send it to a rehab facility.  Declan named it "Pumpkin" the flying squirrel.
We also got to see all of the snakes, frogs and turtles that they have in the nature center!  Declan LOVED an enormous Bullfrog!  The owls and hawk were awake as well - Declan totally loved that the owls kept turning their heads all the way around!

Admirals vs. Fort Belvoir

 Today our team lost again and is now 0-3.  Good thing the rest of the schedule looks a bit easier than these first three teams!!
