Last Week at the Lake House
Here are some memories from last weekend. We enjoyed breakfast at the diner in Maplewood.




Here is Matthew ready for breakfast.








Matthew was snug as a bug in a rug after his bath.










He has a cute rocking chair that just fits him. (I think it was Kelly's mom's chair!)

Little Elephant Discovers Halloween Candy

(The Maplewood Community Halloween Party is going on in the background.)

Halloween in Maplewood, New Jersey

Last week we spent a few days with Tom, Kelly, and Matthew in New Jersey and New York. We had wonderful days with everyone and the weather was beautiful.
Maplewood has an excellent tradition: a community wide Halloween party is held downtown on Halloween afternoon.

Above are Tony, Kelly, and a Baby Elephant ready to go to the party.



The Baby Elephant was very happy in his costume, surveying the scene from his comfortable stroller seat.



Adults as well as children enjoyed the festive atmosphere; here was a "gorilla carrying a caged man" costume we especially enjoyed.




Kelly with her friend who lives on a nearby street. They are members of a playgroup for toddlers.
