Sesame Place Again!

We visited Sesame Place on Saturday and it was a beautiful Fall day. We had a great time. We are now season pass members and Nicholas couldn't be more excited; Nate even loves it there! Come visit us soon!

Nick still loves pumpkins
(Go to previous October posts and you will find him with many!)

Ernie, the Count, and Bert pumpkins (and Nick!)

Nate's First Ride-- the Big Bird Balloons.

Nick was in the Elmo show as a ghost who wouldn't dance!
(Video to follow in another post!)

Nate trying to touch Dorothy, Elmo's goldfish.

Nate tumbling!

He is having so much fun.

Can I lift this thing?

Two brothers playing together.

These are always my favorite pictures in sequence. Running to the character with open arms, the embrace, and the picture pose. :)

Oh Elmo!

A big Elmo loves you hug.


Happy Halloween from Nick, Nate, and Abby Cadaby!


Nate climbed this ball net. Amazing.

Nate kissed this Ernie picture. It was hysterical.

The push cars.

How do I look?

My three boys!

Please Touch Museum

We just found out that the Please Touch Children's Museum in Philly is free for military. It is an amazing children's museum. We went with Gaga when she was here a couple of weeks ago. Here are the highlights. COME VISIT US EVERYONE!

Adventure Aquarium

Things have been crazy busy here for the past month. I am going to catch you up with some pictures in different posts.

Last month, Gaga and Papa Fine were here so we decided to join the aquarium with family passes. The Adventure Aquarium is about 30 minutes away in Camden and is AMAZING! We have since been twice. There is a ton of fish, sharks, turtles, penguins, seals, etc., but they also feature two hippos! They are really the coolest animals. VISIT US EVERYONE- our passes include two guests- we would love to show you the coolest aquarium around!

Outside of the aquarium overlooking the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Shark bait- NICK!

Nick and a hippo up close!

Nate's turn to see the hippo!

The Finest Family

Daddy midday. Time for a snack!

Nick and his turtles.
"Aunt Annie would love these Mommy. We have to bring her!"

Nate laughing at the penguins.

"Nate look at the turtle swimming! LOOK!"

It is really the coolest place. More pics soon!

First Day of School

Today was Nick's first day of school in New Jersey. He said goodbye without a problem, and to my heart's desire, he ran and gave me a huge hug upon pickup.

Before school- such a sweet boy!


So excited!!

Nick goes to school with big kids all the way up to 8th grade!

To compare, here is Nick last year. He is definitely taller and more mature.

We love you Nick! Good job buddy!

Go Giants...

A week ago, I went to Atlanta to surprise my best friend Cigdem for her 30th birthday. Nick, Papa, and Daddy were given preseason tickets to a Giants game (thanks Aunt Cathy!). Although I was quite jealous and wanted to be with them too, they went and cheered enough for me and I had a blast with old friends and good times in Atlanta.

Nick ready to leave the house for the big game.

Daddy and Nick in our seats.

Pure utter excitement!

I was in Atlanta at the same time at Cigdem's big 30th birthday bash... here we are!
