Happy Halloween

It has been a while since the last post and we have been busy with lots of fall activities. From apple picking to first field trips, the fall has been full of fun. Eamon is finally walking and can't be stopped. Myles had his first school field trip with a visit to Emery Farm where he went on a hayride and walked through a corn maze. A few weeks ago we cheered on UNH at the men's hockey game. Unfortunately, our cheering wasn't enough for them to pull out the victory. Our most recent adventure was Halloween which was a three day extrvaganza. It started Thursday with a class party. That evening we went on a Pumpkin Stroll at Myles' school to see all of the pumpkins decorated by students. Friday was treat night with trick-or-treating with our friends the Dulacs. Myles, Drew and Cole sprinted from house to house and finished in record time. Eamon even joined in and rang some doorbells for treats. However, he also tried to go into people's houses and was soon cutoff. Finally, Saturday evening we went to the Halloween party put on by Durham Parks and Rec where we all took a spooky walk through the woods (I think the adults were more freaked out than the kids).

Myles' 4th Birthday...

Myles celebrated his 4th birthday with family and friends this past weekend. He had a great time playing on the playground with his cousins and then came back to the house for pizza and cake. This year marked the first year that he didn't burst into tears during Happy Birthday. Thank you to everyone who helped him celebrate!!

Deutsche Bank 2009

Wednesday, Kirk and Myles went to a practice round for the Deutsche Bank Golf Championship. Their day started with the VIP treatment when they got to park in the VIP lot with the Ferraris. Myles had a blast playing in the bouncy houses and at the mini golf course. They also got to watch players warm up before heading out on the course. Myles also had his picture taken with Padraig Harrington and Fred Couples (along with Freddies autograph). While Kirk and Myles were in the proshop, Camillo Villegas came in and touched his hat. Unfortunately, Kirk was a little caught off guard standing shoulder to shoulder with Camillo and wasn't able to get a picture with him.

Blueberry and Peach picking...

While Myles went golfing with Baampah, Eamon and I went blueberry picking with Dramma. Eamon was like a little baby bird on my back eating blueberries. If you didn't feed him fast enough, he would point and chirp like a little bird. We also picked some peaches while we were there.

Dramma, Baampah and Blueberry Picking...

Myles, Eamon and I went to visit Dramma and Baampah while Kirk was in Tampa for work. While there we visited Dreat Dramma and Michael; rode the little Indian; worked in the garden; played golf and picked blueberries and peaches.

Beach Days during Hurricane Bill

The boys and I went to the beach toward the end of Hurricane Bill. Thankfully neither of them are too interested in playing in the water because the waves were huge. Myles had fun perfecting his Baywatch run in and out of the water and Eamon worked on covering every square inch of his body with sand.

Swimming Lessons

Myles took swimming lessons at the Portsmouth pool this summer. Although he didn't actually learn how to swim, he did become more comfortable with the water. The class practised using noodles, kickboards and collecting rings. At the end of the 4 week session he received a certificate and some pool toys from his teacher. His biggest area for improvement is going under water.

Eamon had his 1 year appointment today and passed with flying colors. He is 21 lbs and 2 oz, 29 1/2 inches tall and has a lot of brains in his head. Aside from keeping us busy chasing after him he has become very good at pointing at things he wants, making truck noises while he pushes them around and cruising around on his feet while holding onto the furniture.

Eamon turns 1!!!!!

On July 18th we celebrated Eamon's first birthday with family and friends. He had a great time and fully enjoyed his first bites of cake. Unlike his big brother, Myles, Eamon didn't cry when everyone started singing.

Opening his first present.

Checking out the goods.

What is this stuff?
