Every year Athens enjoys a super fun Halloween and this year did not disappoint! 

Of course, the entire family dressed up!

The kids bobbed for apples...

Mom's lady friends hung out!
And later in the night the kids did a series candy exchange!

Just a weekend...

This past weekend dad took Odin camping with the Boy Scouts.  Dad bragged about how helpful Odin was cooking and preparing the campsite and then cleaning up when it was time to go home.

At home, Mom and Bjorn had a relaxing weekend that involved cooking, reading lots of stories and hanging out together.

Bjorn's Birthday

Bjorn turned a really big 6 last week.  On his actual day we opened presents before school and got ice cream after dinner.  Of course, he got legos!

This past Sunday we had his actual party at ChuckECheese.  Clearly he had a great time.

Odin's Birthday

Odin turned 9 on August 20th (about a month has been too busy for blogging!).  Lots of fun things happened.  On the morning of his birthday he got his birthday donut from Ike and Jane before school.

We also spent the weekend at Lake Oconee with friends and Odin got up on his kneeboard for the first time.  And he did fabulous!

We also had a birthday party at the skating rink for all his school friends.
 It was a large crowd!  Odin loves to skate and has gotten very good at it.

A really fun Friday

Last Friday we made a visit to a lovely area outside of Athens, GA for a seriously fun adventure.

Tucked away in the middle of nowhere is a property with a pond, 510 ft zip line going across the pond, a climbing wall and a repelling wall!  I took the boys there with our new neighbor friend, Samaya.
 Gearing up with the saftey harnesses.
 And zooming across the pond on the zipline.  Mom got to go twice and each kiddo got to go 5 times!  It was thrilling!
 After the zipline we gave the climbing wall a try.  Odin, like spider-man, quickly climbed to the top.
 Bjorn, too, got amazingly high!
 And even Mom did pretty well;-)
