Rest of Gwendie's Visit
Rachel came back from her conference early Sunday morning, in time to see mounds of Halloween candy and give Gwen tons of hugs. 
We had a Thai lunch out with Sam and family--they bring Uno or Old Maid to restaurants to fill in the wait time for meals to arrive--very smart move.
A great hike 

in nearby Stough Canyon
and I get some sweet time with my Gwen.

Burbank Halloween
Starts with intense pumpkin carving by Sam, with Max's help--this one kind of like a fringed-lipped bat.
The costumes:  Max as Darth Vader!

and Maddie as a Jedi warrior with light saber.
(Their costumes made by Mimi, the other grandma). 

Gwen, a spooky lady in white.
Sam and Jess' scary clown friend John!!!!
The gang, ready to go. 

The pumpkins lined up on the stoop, hoping for trick or treaters.

Gwendo's Visit
Whilte Rachel was at a conference in Monterey we got to watch and play with Gwendolyn all week:
At Kidspace--a selfie on the spider web,
at a neat playground in Pasadena,
at a gymnastics lesson.

And she entertained us:
reading to Toby,
taking a few photos
from our new car.

Burbank and Kiddos!
Here we are in Burbank, nice and warm and lovely to be surrounded by family--
Doing Legos,
and more Legos,
and kiddo in from Panama, eating strawberries,
trying on wigs,
and more wigs,
and proudly getting a blue belt.
Good to be back!!!
