Brooklyn marathon

This year was the first-ever Brooklyn marathon. The entire course was in Prospect Park, and Erin was volunteering at one of the water stations, so we went out to help cheer on the runners. Well, a few of the runners, anyway. By the time we made it out the door (babies have amazing delay tactics at their disposal, it's almost like they WANT their parents to be stuck indoors indefinitely), the race was almost over. But we did get to cheer for the last few runners, and then take a nice walk in the park...
And here's a bonus shot of our fearless hero sleeping, safe at home.

So like we said, Mom was not feeling very ambitious this year. And P-rock had scored a sweet hand-me-down Power Rangers outfit from the toy exchange table at our block party a few weeks ago, and had his heart set on wearing it for Halloween. So Mom caved and let him wear it. No slouchy home-made costume this year, no sir. This costume is store bought! Fancy. (Not that P has any idea who the Power Rangers are. The outfit just has a cape AND gloves, so it definitely passes any 5-year-old's coolness test).
So here are P and G posing in front of their favorite Halloween displays in the neighborhood. The one that says "American Savings Bank" was a display that took up the whole front yard area of a house... It seems to be some reference to the financial crisis? Whatever it was, it was cool. We trick or treated all the way home from school and scored some serious candy, then we sat on our front stoop and ate half of it and gave the other half away to other trick or treaters.

Trip to the pumpkin patch

Well, sort of. We weren't feeling very ambitious this year (something to do with Mom carrying her own giant pumpkin around in her belly?) so we took a short wagon trip with friends to the local supermarket for pumpkins to make into jack o'lanterns. Eh, the wagon ride was fun, at least...

October snow

We were getting ready for Halloween when all of a sudden, it started snowing. Really snowing, not just a few flurries. So we canceled our trip to the haunted carousel in the park and stayed home and played in the back yard...
