Another busy Sunday

On this very cold Sunday we were busy decorating a gingerbread house and afterwards we took the boys to the playground.

The anticipation

Dentist time

Max visited the dentist to have his chipped tooth checked out and we were assured it was all well. Nothing to be done really. Picture below shows the dental assistant with Max in action to get a picture of his teeth.

Up and down

Although we did not encourage this, Simon has somehow mastered a new skill on the slide.


Musical Max

Max was completely fascinated with the massive music box on the roof of the Wake Health Hospital.

Halloween 2013

Even though this is now the third Halloween for Simon and Max this year was the first time that they got to actually experience it. They wore costumes last year, but it was just a blur. This year they were busy Halloween bees.
