Happy Halloween!

We decided to run a 5K this Halloween! So we ran the Bill's Pizza Halloween 5K. Parker slected this one - because they served Pizza after the race. There were close to 1,000 runners. Our times were:
Parker - 24.26 - 175 Place (28th Place for age group)
Judy - 27.22 - 322 Place (4th Place for age group)
Slow Poke Jon - 27.53 -349 Place (24th Place for age group)

Parker, Judy and Jon dressed up for the race.
I carved my pumpkins early so I could watch the big football game - Pats vs. the Vikings!
When I went outside to start my grill - I had visitors. Now I have my turkey for Thanksgiving.
So it looks like he slept on the couch!

Which Jersey do you have?

Great Costume!
My pumpkins at night.

Brenden at Hatfields for Dinner!

My cousin Sandy, sent me these photos. Brenden came over for dinner after work.

Craig Hatfield and Brenden enjoying a couple of brewskis!
The wind storm took down this tree in their front yard. I suggest they cut off the top and use it for their Christmas Tree.

Another Hike up Blue Hill!

It was a nice fall day and we decided to hike Blue Hill again. This time, Judy joined Parker and I. We even took the tour at the weather station, which is the oldest one in continuous use in the US.

The 3 of us at the top.

Parker noticed that they had the chair lift open so we decided to take it down.

Hiking Blue Hill!

A couple of weeks ago Parker wanted to go hiking. Where this came from - I do not know. So I said sure - let's try Blue Hill just outside of Boston.

This is the tower at the top of the hill. That's Parker waving at me.
This is the view of downtown Boston from the tower.

They even have a ski hill with chair lift. Parker thought it woudl be fun to try it out.
We plan on going back once the leaves start turning.
