Took the kids down to the dried up part of James River last week when the school had parent/teacher conferences.

I love sleeping babies. And June loves our Lizzy cat (even though her eyes water and her nose gets itchy when she's been holding her too long). Lizzy ran away for 5 days and then showed up one night mewing at our back door and ever since we haven't had any problems with her running and hiding and being terrified of the kids. She's so friendly and loves cuddling up with each kid. It must have been her traumatic experience living on her own in the "wild" (aka: under the neighbor's shed).

We took a picture perfect trip up to Philadelphia this weekend to see our good friends the Blakes (friends from Richmond who are up there just for a year doing a fellowship), and to celebrate Halloween in one of Geof.'s favorite cities.
Reading Terminal Market
Mouth-watering aromas. Produce fresh from the field. Amish specialties. Fresh meats, seafood, and poultry. Unique, hand-made pottery, jewelry and crafts from around the world. The hustle and bustle of a multitude of diverse people. It’s all here in Philadelphia’s historic farmers market, Reading Terminal Market. An exhilarating selection of baked goods, meats, poultry, seafood, produce, flowers, ethnic foods, cookware and eclectic restaurants are peppered throughout the Market. We invite you to explore this unique and extraordinary historic farmers market in Center City Philadelphia.
We definitely want to return before Matt and Erin's time is up. What a fun city! The only thing that would have made it all better would've been to stay an extra week and for Geof. to not have to work...not that we're complaining. Thank goodness for his job! :)
On Halloween night we headed over to a posh neighborhood where in one home we were actually invited in for hot apple cider, pumpkin choc. chip cookies, soda or bottled water (for each kid!), and of course full size candy bars. No joke! I'd never experienced that many one-uppers in my life! ;) The kids were happy and of course we didn't mind snagging a few of their full size Snickers. Thank you!
I just realized I didn't get one pic of Matt and Erin. Lame. Well, they're pretty good looking people if you have to know...
