we stopped by a little pumpkin patch in pacifica right before swim class today to pick up some pumpkins for carving this weekend and snapped this quick pic



as esther's hair starts to get a little longer, it is looking like it's starting to get a little curly!

Dottie recently started a friday morning gymnastics class with her friends Frannie and Maisie (far left in the first picture). So fun to watch to girls tumbling and jumping and balancing together. She loves it and Esther can't wait to be able to take a class soon too! She "scoot, scoot, scoots" all over the mats during the class as you can see in the 3rd picture.


not sure if she actually digests it but esther sure does like playing with broccoli

We finally got a chance to meet mindy and gautam's new baby girl, Neela, yesterday! She is as sweet and as pretty as it gets. We had a great lunch together and dottie and ashwin (19 months) got the lead out together at the playground before and after we dined.
