We were driving past a coffee shop in Sugar House and their were scores of people sitting on the patio. People doing smug, coffee shop appropriate things with their Mac Books and Buddy Holly glasses.

I said, "Look Remi, hipsters!"
He promptly replied, "Me no like hipsters!!!"

Love that boy.

4 Years of Halloween

Remi's first Halloween was pretty uneventful. He had a pretty strict bedtime and I think we only managed to trick or treat at a few houses. Keith was stuck late at work anyway. Low key at best. Every kid in our family is required by law to be a pumpkin for their first Halloween, so here he is in keeping with tradition.
Remi's second Halloween was more fun. We visited a place in Texas called Old Town Spring, then over to a pumpkin patch with friends. Remi was a bat. A costume a bit to warm for that 70 degree day. Marshall was on the way.

Remi's third and Marshall's first Halloween. The first year Remi got to decide what he wanted to be. His first choice was his final one. This was probably the beginning of his long running obsession with elevators. Marshall was recovering from surgery to cut his frenulum (tongue.) He was the requisite pumpkin, we just didn't keep him out very long, or get a good picture in his costume!
This year Halloween took on a whole new meaning to the boys! They both fully understand that it's cool to bother strangers at home and ask them for candy. With Keith out of town, we had to make the most of it and treat-or-treat on Main St, at She-She's trunk-or-treat and around the block with Emi and Buddy. We will be eating candy for a long, long time. Remi willing let me dress him as Dwight Schrute from "The Office" and Marshall semi-willingly let me dress him as Mose (Dwight's strange cousin)
