the artist and astronaut

Both Mer and Jesse dressed up as if they were doing their dream occupation - astronaut and artist. 

(So mad at my camera that it didn't focus on Mer instead of the tree behind.)

bike ridin'

We finally rode on the Kewash Nature Trail in August. We've been wanting to for the whole summer, but it was just too hot! We rode from West Chester to Washington, which is around 7 miles. By the end both Meredith and Jesse were very tired. The kids and I rode into Washington to the park and Kent rode back to the car in West Chester and then drove to get us in Washington. Since the trail is what used to be a railroad, there is a really cool old railroad bridge that you get to cross. Unfortunately my camera stayed in my backpack for the rest of the you only get to see pics from the bridge!

Pirates of the Caribbean

We like to play Lego video games on the Wii at our house. To be truthful, Jesse and I like to play Lego video games. This year we got Pirates of the Caribbean and played that quite a bit. Especially after we had gotten at least 70% of the way through the game and then Jesse deleted everything that was saved - which meant that we had to work at getting back to 70%! Anyway, towards the end of the summer it was apparent that we played a lot of Pirates of the Caribbean. When your kids put on a play that is based on a video game, that means that you need to put the Wii remote away!

Meredith dressed up as Jack Sparrow.

And Jesse dressed up as Davy Jones. 

They waged a fierce battle.

But in the end, Jack Sparrow defeated Davy Jones and found the treasure. 

It was quite creative and way adorable!

First Day

It's been a few weeks ago, but we had a great first day of school...smiles all around at both the beginning and end of the day!

Meredith is in 4th grade.
And Jesse is starting kindergarten.

Enjoying the weather

We're all of a sudden reminded that fall is here - which makes beautiful days like these even more sweet!
