Riley Reunion and visit in the OT school

Back to fall events.
Our fall was so busy that I am only able to catch up now.
Early September we had the chance to go to the annual Riley NICU Reunion.
This year was really fun when they could try lots of things and we actually enjoyed it.
Only Tomi got lost in the crowd but was soon found.
It was so heart warming to see their nurses who cared so much for them. They were doing face painting on them, made braclets etc.

Through our OT we had the chance to take the kiddos down to IUPUI to the first class of OT students. We all had such a wonderful time. For some of the students this was the first encounter with toddlers whom they had to do different playful OT assignments with.

These were real fun outings!
Enjoy the slides

October 19th

Another milestone. Age 3. It seems like we are having smaller and smaller birthday parties as they get older. I guess it's normal. Yet it was just the perfect size. We were able to talk to people and give enough attention to the birthday children :) It is so wonderful to celebrate birthdays with friends, family and be surrounded by their love.
I was so excited to make fun cakes. (love doing this kind of stuff)
Now as we are in the midst of 3's it's really not too bad.

Some pictures now...

Further fall fun

This year we enjoyed the fall to the fullest. For their birthday they got a special gift. We all got to ride on a real train and visited the pumpkin patch.
To me it was almost like home since Hungary we use trains as everyday transportation. Doing it with our children was so much more fun though.
At the pumpkin patch there was so much to do. Visiting different farm animals, going through the corn maze, different crafts and of course we had a hay ride.

Cliff and Debbie, thank you so much for this precious memory.
It is all captured on the folling slideshow
