Solstice Hike

Warming by the fire after the hike.

This evening we celebrated Solstice by going for a night hike at Jester Park. They lined a short trail with lanterns and luminaries and then had hot chocolate and smores afterward.

Saturday Happenings

This afternoon we paid a visit to Greenwood Park, where the kids used to come every Monday during homeschooling. The pond was awesomely frozen and we enjoyed the lower access. Elliot also saw a big mammal swimming under the ice.
In the evening we went to the mall to hang out and walk around for a bit. Rose wanted to visit Santa, so we did just that.

Halloween 2019

I guess a more apt title for this post would be “Beggars Night 2019,” but I feel like I am already committed. This year we trick-or-treated on a Wednesday night. Elliot, Lucia, and Rose dressed up and ventured out and Andrew and Mari stayed home to pass out candy.
