Pumpkin Push

Alicia and Nolan invited us to join them at the Pumpkin Push this year; a race to raise money for Seattle's homeless. So we woke up this morning and headed to Seward Park for some fall-time fun.  Nolan and Bryan ran the 5K, while Alicia and I pushed Blake and Flora in their strollers on a shorter 2mile loop.  It was a beautiful fall morning on Lake Washington!  We all had tons of fun at the Pumpkin Push, and will do it again next year!  Afterward we all went Geraldine's Counter in Columbia City for brunch...YUM!
 Our little pumpkin (Thanks cousin Sagey for the costume!)

 Buddies!  Blake and Flora.
 Daddy and Flora
 All us.
 Mommy making Flora laugh.

 So sleepy...
Fun times with the Bradbury's!

Flora's first WSU football game

WSU played OSU last night 7.30pm at Seahawk Stadium.  Flora, Bryan and I went to the game with Jeff and Tierney Schu (Jeff and Bryan were fraternity bros at WSU and Tierney and I went to Gonzaga Prep together).
Here are some photos of Flora's first game.

Getting all bundled for the game...
 Warming up...
 Her eyes were so wide... taking in every little thing at her first game.
 Note, Flora has this grey Coug onesie on the outside of her snow suit and there is a white one on the inside... Courtesy of Auntie Sammy (and the red one was in our back pack in case of a blowout).
 It was starting to get loud.... so the hearing protection goes ON!
 She was so cute!  And the headphones didn't bother her at all.
 National Anthem played by the WSU band.
 Fight song.

 Go Team!
 Look at our little family! :)  So proud!

 Sleepy time.
Both Bryan and I are kickin' ourselves for not getting photos with Jeff and Tierney!  Sorry guys!  We had fun with you two. And need to hang out again soon.

Flora did awesome at her first game!  She stayed out way past her bedtime, but she just snuggled up with me and slept through the Beavs whoopin' up on the Cougs. :( Maybe we'll get to see a win next year.

Austin Texas!

Grabbing coffee and a breakfast taco with this beautiful view!

At the park...

Flora scratched her cheek w/her mini claws. :(

Mama loves her little girl!
"Give me that camera!"
So sleepy!
Abigail loves playing with her cousin!
She brought out all her stuffed animals to play with.

Riding Suzie...
...Abigail's enormous stuffed elephant

"Yeehaw partner!"
Paul: "Where do you live, Abigail?"
Abigail: "AUSTIN, TEXAS!"

Good morning cousin!
Playtime continues!
