That one Wordless Wednesday where I try to catch up… MONTHS.

Ahem.  Here’s a quick, slightly wordy version (because otherwise it just won’t make sense)!

Spring 2014:

We visited my family in the midwest.

Dance recital – SO cute.


And some other random stuff – feeding geese and letting our butterflies go from our little butterfly thing.



Summer 2014:

Ummm nothing really.  School started in August, but I already posted those pictures.  We were preparing for a very busy fall (even though we didn’t know it yet).


Fall 2014:

The Man’s grandfather passed away in early September, which meant a trip to the beach for the funeral and lots of extended family time.  We love seeing them – wish we could see them more often, and when there is not a funeral to attend!











We went to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown Settlement the very next week.


We went to a waterfall a couple of hours from us.  The kids and The Man went to the top.  I did not. 😛


We then went and picked pumpkins.


We also went up into the mountains for a drive a couple different times this fall.


Apple picking field trip – my first organized field trip for a large group!  Woohoo!


Halloween.  How CUTE is Pikachu??!!


My grandparents visited, and we had ‘Christmas’ with them while they were here.


Astro turned 9.



and December:

Another field trip (we had one in November, too, but it was a traveling exhibit at an art museum, so no photos) – this one to a ‘living museum’.  Both Link and Pink have said they want to work there when they grow up.


And… it seems like there is a holiday in December… what was it?  Oh, yeah.  Christmas. 😉
