Fall Flowers

Evelyn marked the recent changing of the seasons by planting some mums. She broke out her gardening gloves and watering can and got to work.

But the mums were thirsty and Evy needed some more serious equipment.

Evelyn turned 2 1/2 today and we celebrated by making cupcakes. She likes to spread lots of icing and shake lots of sprinkles on them.

Icing the Cupcake

I thought that since it was her half-birthday, maybe she should just eat half of the cupcake.

Evy disagreed.

Long Weekend

Evy enjoyed the three day weekend in celebration of Labor Day. Her cousins from New York came into town and the schedule was packed with fun.

Events included dinner and cake and then a family reunion (complete with another pinata). After that it was time for a return trip to Kennywood.

All three cousins won a prize at the fish pond.

Evy and Ben cruised on the motorcycles (and helicopters and spaceships and planes and elephants).

Motorcycle Ride

We wrapped up the weekend with a Labor Day picnic. After feeding the ducks and inspecting the tractors, Evy had a chance to check the progress of the grapes in the arbor. She classified them as "good."


You'll notice that no naps were on the agenda. All three of us are still recovering...
