Halloween 7: The Tale of The Dragon, The Bee & The Park Ranger

Halloween is always one of our favorite times of the year. Having it fall on a Monday night, maybe not quite as much. Now instead of being able to focus all of our kids attention on going out and collecting candy for me (because someone has to keep their teeth from rotting out), we had to balance gymnastics practice, Trick-or-Treating and a regular bed time.

Having A Ball

IMG_4052One nice thing about living where we are now…it can be much easier to maintain friendships and relationships beyond Facebook since a lot of people seem to make their way close by at one point or another.

It is October which meant that the Balls were making their annual trip. This is always a great excuse to get away and go the beach to hang out with friends. I left work a little early and we made our way. Continue reading “Having A Ball”
