Tate's Preschool Christmas Program. He loves the singing and actions!

Beau wondering the aisles at the Christmas program.

Family Christmas love.

These dudes were sitting like this watching TV.

Hershey Gardens Winter Walk

I can't get enough of the Hershey Gardens. Set on a hill, it has great views of Hershey, it is always unbelievably uncrowded, and there are really cool events! On Saturday, we hit the Winter Walk complete with ice sculptures, world class carolers (seriously, we are talking Broadway stock, and we are the only ones there listening), free cookies, lots of fun decorated Christmas trees and more!

Beau and Darin in the musical gardens.

Tate playing hide and seek in the shrubbery. Caught!


Just uploaded some picts from Darin's phone. Here is Tate in one of many Halloween getups. This one is werewolf.

Beau loves nothing more than putting on Darin's glasses.

BYU Roommates

Leesburg, VA - August, 2010
Cort, Katie, Linsy, Hanne, Marie

(sleepy Tate)

10 years later - Marie and I with our kiddies.

Swimming at Marie's pool.

Trip to DC Zoo - Tate pretty much made this face during the outing. Thought he may be hot/tired/over vacationed/not impressed with exotic animals/traumatized from never seeing his dad. Maybe, but the next day he vomited all over Marie's white carpet (sorry!) - so poor little guy was sick.

He did have fun with his buddies - in matching shirts with a 'B' (for bear hunter) written on the back.

Cort looking on. Thats a lot of strollers for our kiddies!

My Robin Hoods - Trick or Treating Night 2010

Trick or Treat Night is always Thursday in Hershey. Tonight there was fantastic weather and our neighborhood was in festive spirits (decor, costumes, scare antics)- so it was a P-A-R-T-Y!

The Pope approaching.

Notice the ninja in the tree. Kinda creepy!

Even the pets dressed up!

Lots of candy and lots of fun!

Hershey Halloween Parade

creative jelly fish costumes

the Kiss Mobile

Yeah! Parade! (Tate wore a robot costume he made.)

Its almost here.....

Let the Halloween festivities begin!

Because Hershey has Candy

Hershey knows how to do Halloween. 'Hershey Park in the Dark' opens up on the weekends with lots of free candy and Halloween fun. Then, more candy on Friday nights at Hershey Gardens' Pumpkin Glow. If thats not enough, you'll have to wait for many-a-Halloween parades, trick or treating at Chocolate World, Hershey's designated trick or treat day (always the Thursday before Halloween) or trick or treating in surrounding towns on the 31st. Festivities Galore!
At Hershey Park 'Hershey Park in the Dark' - although not quite dark yet in this pict.

A duel!

Leaving, time for bed
