I had photo sessions both last night and tonight, so we've had a pretty low key weekend.
I stepped on a spot on our bedroom carpet Friday night and it was wet. We pulled back carpet and took down part of the wall Saturday morning. Couldn't figure out for the life of us how it got wet. Thought it had maybe come from the roof from all the rain we had these last months. Then we did laundry today and it's all wet in there again. Now that the walls gone, we can see where it's coming from, kinda. Ack.
Yesterday Matthew decided the park was an American Ninja set, so we had to go back today (once with me and again with Michael while I was gone) to run the course.
He had to run for a bit first (full on run for a block).


Then he does a series of "obstacle course" at the park - monkey bars, balance beam, under and over things, etc.


Then he took a minute to play tic tack toe with Dad.


The sky was gorgeous tonight. Of course this happened on the way to the car.


Had to pull over at my "spot" to catch a couple of last light ones...

I have an extra chromosome - I stand out from the crowd.
And of me I know - My family are very proud.
I have an extra chromosome - Some people think that's sad.
But that it makes me who I am - I am so very glad.
I have an extra chromosome - Please don't stare and pity me.
For I like you for who you are - See, acceptance is the key. - Nathan (w/ DS)


I came across this article today on FB and stopped to read it...
You should too!

Tonight we went to the Balloon Spooktacular at Salt River Fields. Michael has a couple of co-workers that have balloons and were there. We have never been to it before, so it was fun! It was quite crowded and we didn't stay but a couple of hours. LOTS of hot air balloons - bouncys for the kids, trick or treating (no - Matthew didn't dress up). The balloons were beautiful! We left at around 8pm and went next door to the Schootsdale Pavilions and ate dinner. When we were leaving - the fireworks went off, so we sat in the parking lot and watched them.





What a goofer! See Batman behind him? It was Batman, his wife Robin, and the super kids - Superman and the Pink Power Ranger - so fun!
