Turkey Run 2015

We all ran in the 3.2 mile Turkey Run. I didn't even try to keep up with Eason, who finished in 25:30. Instead I ran with Andrea, who finished in 41:00. These were both significant improvements over our last run.

Last Thanksgiving

For Thanksgiving this year the kids and Aviva put together an apple-themed menu. Babcia fried 92 latkes, and they went like hot cakes ...or latkes and cranberry sauce. Aviva slow cooked the turkey, and everything was delicious! After hosting our family for Thanksgiving for 14 years, this is our last.

Halloween 2015

Post Family2 This Halloween we went to our friend's house for a pre-Trick or Treating party. Andrea dressed up as Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. Eason dressed up as Donald Trump. That left me with the dilemma of dressing up as either Lord Voldemort or Bernie Sanders, and since Eason was going Trick or Treating with his friends, I went for the former, with the best last minute preparations I could muster. Aviva, also at the last minute, put on her best witchy custom. It was a-ghast!

Apple Picking 2015

We went apple picking at Barton Orchards again with our friends. We went to the haunted house, played in the amusement park, went through the corn maze, and picked lots of of apples and a few pumpkins.

Bye, Bye Bungalow 2015

We finished our yearly ritual of packing up the bungalow for the winter. We would have kept coming up more, but the kid's soccer schedules are taking over all our weekends. So after Aviva and Andrea kayaked, while Eason and I canoed around the lake, and we found the lake monster for the first time this summer, and we took a ride around in the tractor, we said goodbye to the kayaks, canoe, row boat, picnic table, rope ladder, swings, tetherball, and hammock...until next year.

Rosh Hashanah At The Bungalow 2015

We had Rosh Hashanah dinner with our family at the bungalow. We also celebrated Babcia's 47th anniversary in America (by eating all the food Babcia made for us). After easting we had fun doing the usual bungalow things...after we stopped for a photo shoot that is.

Labor Day Weekend, Push-Ups And More

We did our usual Labor Day weekend activities of running, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, eating, and a good amount of laying (and floating) around, plus, of course, or Labor Day push-up contest. The contest is supposed to be 500 push-ups in an hour.

Summer 2015 With The Maldonados

We spent some time with the Maldonado family, like we do every year. It is always fun. Luis improved his boat and now his boat is very powerful. We all tried to water ski, like Jack and Riley do, but while some of us did better than others, none of us came close. As always, it was a great weekend.

Gorham Mountain Trail

On our last day in Maine before leaving, we decided to hike round the Gorham Mountain Trail along the eastern coast of Mount Desert Island, overlooking the ocean.

Up And Down And Inside Out In Acadia

We got an early start on Eason's birthday so we could watch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. Unfortunately it was so foggy we didn't have much of a view. After breakfast we took a trip around the loop. We stopped to look and listen at Thunder Hole, and to make stone art at Otter Cove. Then we had lunch at Jordan Pond House and hiked around Jordan Pond. Then we finished our trip around the loop stopping back at Cadillac Mountain. This time the view was great. We ended the day with pizza and a movie.
