We went trick or treating with the Brock family. The base had trick or treating hours from 5:30-8:30 and the kiddos almost lasted the entire time! We had some incredible Vandenberg fog that night which was so perfect for the evening.
Our meal consisted of: Mummy dogs, cheese worms, putrid punch and spooky night brownies.
Courtney wanted a poofy purple dress like Breanna got for her birthday, so Grandma Seely stayed up a few nights and handcrafted this masterpiece.
For Courtney's birthday, she wanted a barbie birthday cake. So Kevin craftfully mastered the art of inserting a Barbie into a bowl cake and literally threw the spinkles at it to create the "splattered" effect. Thank you Lisa Brock for the use of your bowls and house!
Whew! We are at the end of our month long birthday celebration. It starts on September 22 and ends on October 15. Kevin and I take a deep long breath when the last party invitee leaves the last party. We miss you Owen family. This is the first birthday celebration year you have missed!
For Ryan's 6th birthday he wanted a skateboard. We also decided we should include wrist guards, knee pads and elbow guards. All three protective devices have been sufficiently scraped. :) Happy birthday Ryan! We love you!
We took a underwater boat tour during our visit to Morro Bay. The bay was beautiful and we saw several schools of fish. http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?address=&city=Morro%20Bay&state=CA&zipcode=&country=US&title=%3cb%3e%3cspan%20style%3d%22display%3ainline%3bmargin%2dbottom%3a0px%3b%22%20class%3d%22locality%22%3eMorro%20Bay%3c%2fspan%3e%2c%20%3cspan%20style%3d%22display%3ainline%3bmargin%2dbottom%3a0px%3b%22%20class%3d%22region%22%3eCA%3c%2fspan%3e%20%3cspan%20style%3d%22display%3ainline%3bmargin%2dbottom%3a0px%3b%22%20class%3d%22country%2dname%22%3eUS%3c%2fspan%3e%3c%2fb%3e%3c%2fspan%3e&cid=lfmaplink2&name=&dtype=s. The sea lions were all over the place and were so active. They "talked" a lot during our visit. The salt water taffy store held our interest for quite a while.
