I don't think it bears repeating that Halloween is my utmost and absolute favorite holiday ever. EVER. I love everything that goes with it. And I am so excited that sweet Mason is getting almost old enough to enjoy the day as much as I do. Free candy from everyone you know...what's not to love? We decided to take him to Crabtree Valley Mall to trick or treat at the stores so that he could be around lots of costumed little darlings and still be in bed at a decent time. And not have to be outside in the cold. He couldn't quite believe it when the first piece of candy went into his little bucket, and I think he would have been satisfied to leave right then. His patience ran out quickly but he was adorable while his joy lasted! Here are a few shots of our little lion. And a video of his irrepressible dance moves.

In July we spent a week and a half in North Carolina and four of those days down at Atlantic Beach. Mason absolutely LOVED the ocean and sand and beach and seashells and everything there was to offer. Uncle George and Aunt Kelly took us for some beautiful boat rides, and Mason wasn't the biggest fan of the life jacket. He loved the boat, just wasn't pleased that we wouldn't let him jump overboard and swim like the little fish he thinks he is. Fourth of July was incredible. We sat out on George and Kelly's dock and ate burgers and watermelon and watched the fireworks shows at Atlantic Beach and Emerald Isle. Now that we are living just two hours from the beach, I think we are going to have to make this an annual thing.
