Ryder (knight) and Taggart (dragon) couldn't wait to head out for a little trick or treating fun.
We headed to the Goodson's so the boys could join Tyler and Jack.
Wow! They barely had any candy but still acted crazy.

Fall Bike Ride

The boys wanted to head out for a bike ride today to enjoy the great Fall weather....sunny and 75 degrees.
It was Ryder's (and Tagg's) first time off road. He claimed it was a mountain bike ride....I guess from his (their) perspective it may have been.
Tagg huffed and puffed and did his best to keep up. The Strider bike wore him out. After today, we doubt it will be too long before he is pedaling after his brother.
Once Tagg abandoned the bike, Mommy took him and Wilson on a hike while Ryder and Daddy rode their bikes.

Birthday Fun

Ryder was so excited to open his birthday gifts.
Well, when your birthday is so close to Halloween, why not grab your brother, dress up and head out to ride your bikes.Oh to be four and two again.

Ryder's Superhero 4th Birthday

For his 4th Birthday, Ryder wanted everyone to be Superheros. Not your normal superheros.....Specifically, everyone needs to be their own hero.
To test everyone's powers, he thought it best to go bowling.
Nothing better than a Batman Ice Cream cake after using your super powers at the bowling alley.

Pumpkin Patch

The boys wanted to head to the pumpkin patch this weekend.
As Ryder said, "to find a blue ribbon pumpkin".

So the boys kept looking and looking...

Ryder riding

Ryder really wanted a 'big boy bike' before his fourth birthday. So we decided to try it out. He has ridden his Strider bike for nearly two years now so we were confident in his ability to balance and turn. It was more a concern about pedaling and braking.Wow! He did an incredible job. He jumped right on and rode off....
No crashes or wrecks yet....
All he wants to do is ride his bike.

Family Football Day

Ryder and Taggart we so excited to wear their CU 1990 National Championship Alfred Williams jerseys to the CU vs. UGA game today.
This was Tagg's first football game (Ryder's second). He may have had his eyes closed in this photo but they were wide open when Ralphie ran on the field.
The Buffs beat the Bulldogs 29 to 27 in a thriller. Ryder and Tagg were exhausted by the end of the night.
