Halloween 2016 šŸ‘»

Halloween 2016.

Emerson’s first Halloween. It was a great one.

During the day, Daycare did a parade through our office so all employees could see the cute kids in their costumes. The infants were strapped into this awesome wagon-like thing that had seats. It was so cute! Emerson loved seeing all the people in the office and was super smiley.

Emerson was a pumpkin! I went back and forth about whether or not I should buy her a “real” costume. I opted not to spend the $$ and put her in a onsie we already had with a hat my aunt made and it was perfect!

After work, I headed to Charlestown for more Halloween shenanigans. I am part of the Charlestown Mother’s Association and during maternity leave would go for walks with all the moms that had babies around Emerson’s age. There are so many moms!! We made sure to take a picture all of the babies in their costume. It was adorable!

Lots of family came down to celebrate Emerson’s first Halloween. It was a beautiful night! I am already looking forward to next year when Emerson will actually be able to walk around and trick or treat.

This is my favorite photo and I just had to share!

How was your Halloween!?

Family AdventuresĀ 

Emerson has been on a tour of New England this summer. She has met almost our entire family, on both sides. We have been to Vermont, Long Island, New Hampshire, beaches, lakes, mountains and parks. Below are a few pictures from the first part of August.

After a really fun weekend in Vermont to celebrate my cousin Pearson’s wedding, we all headed home. Abbi came down with her daughter Izzi to spend some quality time with our grandparents before she headed home to South Carolina. It was really nice to relax and catch up with everyone.
