As it turns out though, we didn't really partake in any Arkalalah excitement until Friday. I spent the morning finishing up Reid's Halloween costume, then we ventured downtown for the Kiddie Parade - Reid's first and possibly last. ;) It was so crowded and HOT.
The next day, our friends Matt and Kelly came over and we ventured over to the donut shop. Then, we met John, Anna, and adorable kiddos at the park to take their family photos and let the kids play a bit. I got basically no pictures of our fun times together, but I did get a quick shot of this stud muffin. So sweet and chill.
As much as I'd love the opportunity to stay home with him, I also find it hard to imagine him not going there. It's such a good fit. He loves Connie, loves his buddies there (they are awfully sweet...), and I really think it's good for him!
My conference ended on Halloween this year, so I got back then headed to Terese's for soup and to get Reid ready. We didn't see many buddies this year, but we did see a couple before we left there! =) Aren't they cute?
For funsies, here's a little throwback for ya:
So now back to the conference. I was stressed for months about this thing. It seemed like things just kept going wrong. I won't bore you with the details but I was glad to see it finally arrive... and then go. =) It turned out well, for the most part, and everyone seemed to have a good time. Here's a couple pictures from our second social event at Mosley Street Melodrama.
I treated myself to the show special drink... we saw the Halloween show and you can't really see it, but this drink was smoking! =) I also had cheesecake. What can I say.
To wrap up October... here's a little story.
Reid was eating a banana for a snack one day. I was chatting with him and said something along the lines of "Are you eating your banana? Banana's are good for you aren't they? They're good for your belly!" So then, Reid proceeds to lift his shirt and rub the banana all over his belly. He was cracking up the entire time. It was so dang funny.
