Pumpkin Festival

We went to the Laconia Pumpkin Festival today. Cadence climbed the rock wall.

Aurora went on the “jumpy-thingy”.

Blaise danced to the music while ripping grass out of the lawn.


Blaise’s New Bike

Even though Blaise’s birthday isn’t for another month, we know it’s likely to be quite cold by then. So today we gave him one of his presents early.

After a couple years on his Skuut balance bike, he was able to pedal on his own right away. However, starting on stopping is still a challenge.

PorcFest 2017

This weekend we’re at PorcFest in Lancaster, NH.

The kids have been spending most of their time at PorcuPint Central doing arts and crafts with other FreeStater kids.

Aurora made a porcupine.

It was quite warm, so me and the kids enjoyed swimming in the pool.


Aurora and I were long overdue for a Daddy-daughter day, so we went mini-golfing.

She did pretty well for her first time. The course claimed to have the longest mini-golf hole in the world. When we hit our balls they quickly disappeared down a windy path down a hill. Admittedly this was less less impressive than we expected.

Fun Spot

Today we went to Fun Spot in Laconia, NH. While Mommy was glued to the Dr. Mario arcade, I took the kids to the bumper cars, which is always a favorite.
