Ryan is now playing on two basketball teams - one with Boys and Girls Club and one with the YMCA. Here are some pictures from the Gators' first game at the Boys and Girls Club...


Ryan just finished up his second season of soccer. He was on the Blue Sharks and had a great time. This year he played on a much bigger field and played with goalies for the first time. Here are some pictures from the season....

We've been enjoying a new yogurt place that just opened up by us called Mojo - Ryan really likes it too...his favorite flavors are chocolate/vanilla swirled with marshmellows and chocolate buttons :)

Phoenix 10K

Kathy and I ran the Phoenix 10K this morning - had a great time, though not sure the knees will be feeling so good tomorrow! Ryan also did the kids dash after our race and had a great time!

Here we are before the race

Ryan was Commander Cody from Star Wars for Halloween - Kyler came over to trick or treat with us and had the perfect costume to compliment Ryan's!

Classroom Volunteer!

I was able to work in Ryan's classroom today for their 'Body Celebration' - they've been learning about the human body and had a party today with some fun activities - mostly involving skeletons. Here are a few pictures...

Pumpkin Patch

So we made it out to Shnepf Farms to visit their pumpkin patch a couple weeks ago. We had lots of fun despite the heat (was 97 that day!). Here are a few pictures...

Chris wasn't too thrilled about pedaling us on this thing!
