Things have been busy around the Culver abode, so I haven't had as many photo ops OR enough time to post the mediocre photos I do have. But I've been such a blog slacker lately, that I thought I'd appease with a few miscellaneous photos:
First up is a trip Edie and I made to the University Farmer's Market this weekend:
Followed by a walk around the neighborhood. Edie had spotted this house from the car recently and HAD to show me in person. She walked right up to their porch and proclaimed, "We are DEFINITELY trick or treating here!"
On Sunday afternoon there was the annual "parade of costumes" in our neighborhood. Jeff wasn't feeling well, so Edie and I rushed up there after brunch. Thankfully, she was already wearing her Cinderella dress because it's in regular rotation along with her normal clothes, so this is not her Halloween costume, but we went with it because the parade was about to start and we were in a rush. I tied a black ribbon around her neck, threw on a tiara and viola! She added Minnie because "Cinderella always has mices Mom!"
We ran into her school buddy who lives a few blocks away, so she and Elana held hands and were generally adorable for the entire "parade":
The parade ended at our new park, which is a covered water reservoir that's been under construction for almost 2 years. The playground opened this Spring, but this weekend was the opening of the upper level of the park. It's still a bit unfinished and mostly a giant empty field, but the wide paved tracks will probably be good bike riding material this Spring.
Yesterday my parents picked Edie up early from preschool and took her on an afternoon adventure. This might be my favorite picture of my Dad and Edie EVER:
