Movie night!

A lovely night at the cinema with the boys and Raf's friend Gideon. We saw the new Ninjago Lego movie, which, frankly, I was dreading - but it was so funny! Lots of greasy, gorgeous food, too. Chatty and I had lots of snuggles.

Apple Picking 2017!

last week we visited our favorite farm - Doles Orchard - for some apple picking. It's always one of our very fav autumnal things to do. We'd had a morning of soccer beforehand, but luckily we snuck in a nap for Hatts before we left. 

 Trying to get everyone to smile and look at the camera at the same time... not easy!

 After picking apples we hit the maze for some fun. Poor Raf was so startled by his brother and I that he fell over!

And a quick ride on the tractor.

Super fun times.

Pokemon meets Citizenship

We decided to have a joint party to celebrate Raf's birthday and Richard and mine new citizenship! That meant that a lot of people were coming... and luckily the weather was lovely.

A combination of Pokemon and US Citizenship...!

And has become a tradition - our annual bike/scooter/skateboard parade around the hood.

and then of course pinata time!

Finished the night off with a fire. 

Cake... so much cake!

And lots and lots of generous presents.

Good friends.

A fab day for this kid... and indeed all of us.

Ending perfectly with a fire.
