Griffin loves to be outside. He has a hard time sitting still and needs to run. He likes to ride his bike and drive or work on his jeep. Griffin is still playing soccer and is getting really good. Griffin has been in speech therapy for the past 6 months and has made so much progress. He is quite the little chatter box now. 

Happy birthday Twinsies!

Big boy bike

Griffin has been riding a balance bike for the past year and was ready to upgrade to training wheels. Griffin hoped on his new bike and rode it Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, he asked that we remove the training wheels. After a a few falls and a complete meltdown, he got on the bike and took off riding. The neighbors even came out to cheer him on. H was so proud of himself!

In October, Nana and Pop came down to Ocala National Forest with their RV and invited us to go camping with them. We have been thinking of going camping for a while, so we decided to give it a shot. We bought a tent and a bunch of gear and loaded up the car. 
 View from the tent before we put on the rainfly.
 Once we were setup, we went down the Salt Spring to swim. The water is 74 degrees, so we did not stay in it for long. 
   Griffin did not want to have his picture taken with Nana,
 so he got tickled!
 Colette was exhausted after swimming. 
  Climbing trees!
    Roasting marshmallows.
The kids had a great time and cannot wait to go again. They have also requested that we buy a RV. We are not sure when we will be ready to go again. The kids did great in the tent until 5:30 am, then it was time to play. We all took a 3 hour nap when we got home on Sunday.

 Ready for trick or treating with our friends from school, Everett and Ophelia. Devlin was Stampy Cat from Minecraft, Griffin was Batman, and Colette was Katana from DC Superhero Girls.

We bought season passes to Legoland this year. It is a great place for the kids at this age. It is rarely crowded and the kids can ride everything.

 Cool cats don't look back.
