Life...so precious...we are in love and very happy to be the parents of two kids!
Owen loves that Gabriella loves pink...he's becoming quite a fan of pink as well. :-)

One of the houses that we stopped by was Great Aunt Lori's house...Roger's Aunt Lori (Reger, Lori)...I had to clarify for those who think this could be my sister Lori...we'd have to travel far to stop at her house for "trick or treating" :-)
Aunt Lori was very generous with the candy and even let Owen have a piece while we chatted a bit. Owen said, "I love you" and gave her a hug...I wonder if he is beginning to associate food with love....hmmmmm.
We'll have to send the punkin' sweatsuit Julie's way next year for her little girl that was born just a week ago! Julie, can you believe it's been a week? Feel like longer already? We love you and can't wait to come meet our little Elodie Ruth!

Momma was happy to see Owen happy! This is one of the few times he let me hold him...he squirmed his way out of my arms so he could go... play with cousins,
climb and hang (here's the pomel horse),
Run some more on the big, long trampoline,...
Get ready to jump,...
He's been practicing for a few weeks how to jump off furniture and off of curbs. He gets his two feet in the air and gets everything moving forward, and take off! Here he gets to land on a huge, soft mat in a foam-block pit.
He's telling me he got stuck in there...so let's go climb something else!
We found a few more things to climb and another big mat to jump on...
and even after cousins went home, we stayed and played and found some new kids to jump on...I mean, jump with! :-)
What fun it is to see your boy full of smiles!

doesn't it look great??? In the time he was here, he also fixed a bunch of stuff at the duplex, "cleaned" gramma mimi's garage, and "looked" at her lawn mower. He also squeezed in a Badger game on TV and a few good meals followed by a great night's sleep.
Thank you Grampa for all you do! We love you and Owen has so much to tell you...see you in two weeks!

We had so much fun laughing, talking, walking, playing, and...eating!
We tailgated and went to Owen's first baseball game! Miller Park is the best place to go to your first game: we had great seats, there was a slide for Owen to play on, and clowns making balloon shapes for kiddos.
Proud daddy was just glad to take him...even if it wasn't to a Twins game. :-)
Everyone had a great time...Con even shared his big ,blue cheering hand for Owen to wave about. When is the next party? Owen wants to know because he now knows that when we go to a party...there's going to be CAKE! :-)

I was looking at baby pictures...even pictures of him a year ago and last spring...he is getting so big! have I held him enough? have I squeezed enough of his "sturdy" little legs? have I nuzzled his round belly enough? have I embraced all I can of him while he is still my little boy? At what age do little boys make you stop kissing them? If there is any consolation...owen has learned how to hug, using arms and everything! He's learned to kiss without an open mouth, but he keeps trying to kiss the kids at daycare. I guess we need to teach him a few boundaries. :-) I just hope I am getting enough of him while he's still so little...I don't want time to stop or even slow down, but I want to love him all I can when I can...any words of hope? encouragement? suggestion?

After a three-hour nap we went to Lucas and Landon's birthday party...man! they have a lot of toys to play with! It was lots of fun with cars, trampoline, slides, teeter-totter (that he loved until he rolled off of), and CAKE!
We then got to cuddle with daddy on the couch. Roger wanted to lie still and just have some quality time...yeah...try to get Owen to be still other than when he's sleeping! :-) He's TWO!
