First day of school - Bryden starting second grade, and Gavin starting pre-K

Story time is still a favorite time of day

We did a hike through the old Snoqualmie Pass railroad tunnel on a beautiful fall day

It was warm outside, but we were bundled up for the chilliness inside the tunnel and we had our headlamps ready!

Hey - it really is dark in here!

The picnic tables at the west end of the tunnel provided a great place for a picnic lunch with nice views of Granite Mountain

We went to the Puyallup Fair again...

Gavin rode the canoes...

...and the motorcycles...

and the merry-go-round

Mom and her guys on the train

Dad and Bryden rode one of the big Ferris Wheels.

Cotton candy was a big hit this year for Gavin...

...and Bryden

Gavin rode his first roller coaster - you can just see him sitting with Maren. Bryden is in the car behind them.

We did a great trip to Boardman Lake with our cousin Alex for her birthday
(There's lots more pictures from that trip here)
