Is Larkin not the cutest box of popcorn you've ever seen?! We cut out a bunch of cute costumes from catalogs and laid them all out for Larkin to choose from. She went for this immediately. She's been a huge popcorn fan ever since her first baseball game this summer and what's better than eating popcorn than being popcorn! POP!

Larkin's school held a Halloween party that Brian and I were excited to attend. The kids all get dressed up and parade around the rest of the school showing off their costumes, then they eat treats, dance and sing, and just party. Below are a couple of cute pics of the kids having fun. Larkin (sans popcorn costume) and her friend Carter were like two peas in a pod that day and the other picture is of Cici, holding up her mini-pumpkin with pride (I brought them for all the kids and they were a hit)!

The above photo is one of my favorites... check out Brian and Larkin and the brontosaurus in the grand lobby of the Museum of Natural History! I love the enormous dinosaur looming behind them!

Karen had a "first" today... I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan with my Dad. It was a beautiful fall day and after reliving the subway ride where my Dad was last pick-pocketed, we had a wonderful walk across the bridge (with hundreds of other folks, of course). The Statue of Liberty is rather small and far in the distance, but still cool to see. You walk on a pedestrian walk above the cars driving below, and there's such a throng of people that you have to keep moving and stay on your side of the line. There were vendors on the side selling "bloomin' mango" and other fruit on a stick. After our bridge walk, we went over to check out the rebuild progress at Ground Zero (they are building a floor a week on the 1776 ft. tall Freedom Tower). It was a nice afternoon, with some good father-daughter bonding.
