A fun day

Today was the Buddy Walk in our city. It's my favorite day of the year! I just love all the beautiful faces and the feeling of brotherhood in the Buddy Walk crowd.

But we didn't get to go this year.

It's not the end of the world. We have had to skip a lot of fun and good things lately. We still manage to find other fun and good things to do.

We had pancakes for breakfast. I experimented some more with coconut warned, it sucks up a lot of moisture so I needed to increase the milk in the batter. But, it's got a great aroma, is gluten free and has lots of fiber. We are really paying attention to good nutrition here!

After breakfast we loaded up the strollers and headed over to the fall festival parade. Max had fun waving at all the politicians and beauty queens riding in convertibles. Zhen had to cover his ears to deal with the fire truck and police car sirens. Ralph and Ruby filled up a couple of plastic pumpkin buckets with candy tossed by cheerleaders, church groups, and nearly everyone else in the parade.

The afternoon was simply beautiful! The kids played out back and got filthy dirty while I baked a cake. Max decided that he would allow us to place him in the baby swing today without having an anxiety attack! It was nearly too much for him to handle, but he looked around and saw Ruby swinging next to him. I believe that he decided that if Ruby could do it, then so could he!

It was a great day, but I think we'll try to do the Buddy Walk next year.
