catching up

I suppose it would be so much easier to share pictures on FaceBook, but I just can't bring myself to jump into that black hole of time-sucking oblivion. So, here is what we've been up to this fall!

Bub's first "official" USAG meet. 34.95 overall score (out of 40). Not bad for a kid who was out for five months with a broken arm!

The day after the meet, we met up with the rest of my family to go hiking in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. This is us with my folks and my "little" brother and his family.

The kiddos climbing on the rocks. My mom emailed me the next day and said she couldn't sleep that night because she kept having visions of her grandchildren falling off rocks. I had to laugh. No reason. I certainly did NOT have the same problem...

I love my Bub... She's such a happy kid!

This past weekend we camped at Pokagon State Park in northwestern Indiana. We used to camp here frequently when I was growing up--I've not been there for almost ten years. It was great to go back!

My Buddy! Could he be any cuter?!?!

Loving the fall color!

The fall pictures are really lovely...makes me want to go hiking in this lovely New England world I now find myself in. But I have to say that I laughed out loud with much sympathy and understanding for your caution in leaping into the black hole of FaceBook. I've been standing very close to the edge lately. :)

"Happry" is a great character trait for kids. Here's hoping it continues into and through the teen years! -- Alan
