Halloween 2012

Eric and our pumpkins

Even though Halloween 2012 hasn’t actually happened yet, I’m pretty sure most of our participation already has. Last Monday we went to a friend’s Halloween party where all the food was dressed up for the holiday. It was pretty cute. I took my vampire bitten cupcakes and spider cupcakes. Someone else had made stuffed peppers, but carved out Jack O’Lantern faces in the peppers. Things like that. This weekend we went on an easy, but… (more)

Henry Coe Hike

Starting the hike up

Last Saturday Eric and I decided to head out on a 7.8 mile hike (I don’t care that the GPS thinks it was 7.4). We set out early enough to arrive at the park and start our hike by 9am. That was quite the feat for me on a Saturday. Henry Coe State Park is only about an hour away, though, just south and east and up some seriously winding roads. It is the second… (more)
