We're midway into our New Jersey visit with my parents and my sister Adrienne's family, and today the boys took a trip into New York City to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

They returned with this little gem of a video ...

tootsie-owlEmmett chose an orange Tootsie Pop as his after dinner treat tonight. I figured I'd live a little and have one, too.

As we were enjoying our pops, I started quoting the classic Tootsie Pop commercial with Mr. Owl.

Superman Goes Trick-or-Treating

With Emmett's grandparents in tow, James and I took Emmett (AKA Superman) for his first ever trick-or-treating experience this past Halloween.� Emmett made a pretty fabulous Superman, selecting the red and blue suit over the alternative lobster costume (though much to my dismay).

While Superman was a pretty indecisive trick-or-treater when first presented with bowls of various goodies, he got the hang of it by the end of our adventure, knocking on doors himself and saying "Thank you -- bye!" without even being prompted (video).

Nana and Gran-D even taught Emmett how to appropriately get into the Superman character. Watch the footage below to see Emmett flying and making sound effects like Superman.


Quite a step up from his first Halloween, huh? For more photos from Halloween, check out the Halloween 2010 set on Flickr!

An Afternoon at Tougas Farm

It may not be officially fall for another four days, but it sure does feel like it!� Today we spent the afternoon at Tougas Farm in Northboro after a recommendation from James, who'd taken his students there on a field trip a couple of weeks ago.

We� spent the afternoon drinking apple cider, feeding goats (video), getting heckled by roosters, playing on the playground and picking pumpkins.� Despite the fact that there were a million people there and it was basically impossible to snap a photo of Emmett on the tractor (which was very disappointing), we all had a blast!� We also learned, yet again, that a stick is always better than pretty much anything to little boys, even a patch full of pumpkins ...
