We haven't been up to much lately. Dave canned 40 quarts of applesauce this week. Ben really enjoys preschool - he can recite the Pledge of Allegiance, we were very amazed the first time we heard it.
I forgot to mention in the last post that the boys had their well child visits in August. Ben weighs somewhere around 43 pounds and 43 inches tall putting him in the 90% for his age. Sam weighs just under 30 pounds and in the 60% for his age. Both boys are healthy and growing up quickly!
A couple of weeks ago the boys stopped by my office after work for a picnic and to feed the ducks before the weather got too cold. The boys had a great time seeing all the different birds.
Roar says the dinosaur.
The boys love throwing rocks into the water. My office is right by the river so we decided to take an adventure after our picnic.
Last week we went to the Shiori Garden before it closes for the winter.
Our best attempt at a family picture.
Last night the boys helped rake up the first leaves of the season. They had a great time jumping in the piles and helping us move them.
It was pretty difficult to have all 3 of them look at the same time.
Sam did a great job of letting me take his picture. Ben was too busy running around to stop. Notice Sam's new hair cut. He finally let me buzz his hair. He looks like such a big boy now.
Sam loves to run and jump, but on his own terms. Otherwise he prefers to be carried, especially on someone's shoulders.
Today we had some visitors stop by for supper. Grandma and Pop Pop Stephens, Uncle Larry, and Aunt Carol came by to visit.
We took our guests for a tour of the Shiorji Garden.

Thanks again for the visit. We had a great time!
