NJ/NYC - Cute Family Pics

Amelia and Soren had a great time exploring New Jersey (which was apparently over-run with giant inflated turkeys) and New York City. We spent a lot of our time at various parks, as well as the New Jersey Children's Museum and the High Line.

NJ/NYC - Friends & Family

In late November, we spent Thanksgiving back in New Jersey and New York City. We had a great time seeing our family and friends, including a few new playmates for Amelia and Soren!

Amelia Wrangles a New York Bagel

It has been a long time since our last post! We've been busy - a nice, long trip back East, back to work for Katie and back to daycare for Amelia and Soren. We'll post more pictures soon!

Here are some belated photos from Soren's first Halloween and Amelia's first time trick-or-treating. It was a beautiful night here in Seattle, and after some initial hesitation, Amelia had a blast going from house to house.

Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend we visited a pumpkin patch with our friends Mickiala and Alexei. Amelia and Alexei had a blast running through the pumpkin fields and hay maze while the rest of us tried to keep up.

Jumping Bean

Amelia was never a big fan of this toy, but Soren took to it right away. He spends quite a lot of time jumping and laughing in it these days.

Marymoor Picnic

While Soren was off with Mommy in freezing Iceland, Amelia and Daddy took advantage of the beautiful Seattle fall weather to have a fun picnic with baby Julia and her parents, and baby Sophie and her parents. We enjoyed some tasty food, kicked around a soccer ball and wandered through a community garden.

Amelia showed off her artistic side by picking every yellow flower she could find and making Dave a rock-and-flower arrangement.

Soren in Iceland

Soren and Mommy had a great time in Iceland. We saw a dear old friend, geysers and hot springs, and took many walks around Reykjavik.

In addition to being an excellent travel companion and drinking buddy, Soren has turned into quite a conversationalist.

Puyallup Fair

This week we convinced Daddy to play hooky at work so we could do the Puyallup! Amelia had a great time - she petted a bunny and a goat, watched a 587 lb pig nurse her 15 babies, and took a ride on a carousel. Then we ate ice cream and scones - what a day!

Baby Bottom

We recently went to visit our friends Keith, Denise and baby Autumn (or Baby Bottom, according to Amelia) in their lovely new house in Woodinville. After an initial period of adjustment, Autumn warmed up to Amelia's intense style of affection.
