People! What a weekend! It was epic-visually, culinarily, and, most importantly, celebrationally. Our little guy is now officially a 2 year-old. He entered with a bang on 10/21/10 at 10:20 p.m. and has been going strong ever since. We adore having him in our lives and am thrilled to be his parents.
We welcomed friends and family for a pumpkin-centered gathering for the occasion and enjoyed food, crafts, and collectively created decor. There was pumpkin ale and hot cider (with rum, whiskey, or apple brandy for the older set, whole cloves and cinnamon sticks for the littles). There was a glorious bonfire. There was a train set from Pop Pop and a scooting tractor from Gigi. There was goodness all around.
An impromptu excursion up on the Blue Ridge Parkway to check out the peaking foliage was in order, as well. The sharp contrast between the cerulean blue sky and mustard, gold, sienna, crimson, and green leaves was a glorious sight to behold.
Hope the week ahead brings nothing but happiness for you and yours!
