It’s here…it’s finally here! The boys have been going on about Halloween for a couple of weeks now and counting down the days. Soon their coffers will be filled with CANDY!

This year, Adam was a S.W.A.T. officer, and Alex was the Red Power Ranger. Long gone are the days they would dress in similar costumes, as each year they become more and more diverse in their interests. But hey, they’re both crime fighters this year, right?

This year Charlie even got into the act, as a Rocker with his jean jacket and guitar…

Meanwhile, in Alabama, grandkids Oliver and Carter John look AWESOME as Woody and Buzz…

and Kameran was Barb from Stranger Things. I think she did a great job!

As expected, the boys cleaned-up on Candy…enough to last them into December. And Charlie absolutely loved the walk (and the attention).

Happy Halloween

It’s finally here: All Hallows Eve or Halloween, for short. The one night we tell our kids it’s okay to take candy from strangers. Anyway, this year the boys presented a couple of unique challenges with regard to their costumes. Alex wanted to be Ant Man, which seems simple enough. After all, the movie just came out last year, right? WRONG! We couldn’t find an Ant Man costume anywhere! We’ll that’s not entirely true because obviously we DID find one, but it wasn’t easy! And Adam wanted to be a Zombie, which required makeup. You’re thinking, “that’s not so bad,” except Adam had to go look in the mirror every two minutes to inspect my progress. So, finally, after all our efforts, Ant Man meets The Zombie…

And they we’re having fun…although Adam doesn’t look like he’s having fun, he explains that “Zombies never look happy”.

Our grandkids are ready for a great night of “Tricks or Treats,” too. We’ve always talked about how Oliver looks like Spot from the movie, The Good Dinosaur, well, Jess outdid herself with this one! Meet Spot and Arlo (a.k.a Carter John). Oliver even has leaves in his hair!

And Kameran was “Deadpool Chick” from the movie Deadpool. Now, I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t know if she’s “a” Deadpool Chick or “the” Deadpool Chick, all I know is that she’s too cute! From all the pictures of Deadpool I’ve seen online, a/the Deadpool Chick would need to have a couple of swords on her back, but not this one! Instead of breaking heads, it looks like Kam is going to be breaking hearts…

Here’s Uncle Alex and Uncle Adam at the beach with their Niece, Kameran. It won’t be long before Kam has her driver’s license and her Uncle’s will be bumming rides!

So, we’re spending a few days in Alabama visiting the (grown) kids and grandkids. Today we’re off to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center with the boys and Kameran.

Entrance to Rocket Center

Before we enter the Rocket Center, we can’t help but notice a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird on outside display…

Naturally, this requires the USAF legacy airman to capture a selfie with this USAF legacy aircraft, and then one with the boys, of course…

Me and SR-71 Boys and SR-71

Once inside, there was so much to see and do…especially for the kids. There were a lot of educational displays, simulations, a centrifuge, etc. so on…

Alex in the Time Tunnel

Inside the main exhibit hall, there was a full-size Saturn V rocket…

and the actual Command Module from the Apollo 16 mission…

Of course, Alex and Kam would rather enjoy some zero gravity inside the lunar module…

and snap a pic or two (or three) inside a space capsule trainer. Kam is riding fashionably on the outside of the capsule…

There was so much to do and see, and we had a great time. Of course, by the end of the day, Adam was all photo’d out, as you can see…

This year, the boys are going through a Ninja phase. You have to look real close, though, because, you know, they’re Ninjas…

Mom took the boys trick-or-treating, while I stayed behind to give out candy and enjoy some of Cindy’s yummy guacamole…


Meanwhile, a couple of states away, Grandsons Mario and Luigi (a.k.a. Oliver and Carter), prepare to battle their arch enemy, Bowser, while Granddaughter Kameran is the most adorable Cheshire Cat…

Needless to say, the boys cleaned-up on candy, and if they had their way, they’d eat it all tonight (and Adam was doing his best to negotiate that possibility)

Oh, and before I forget, here’s a picture of Cindy’s jack-o-lanterns. I cleaned-out the guts, and mom and the boys added the faces. Although I;m a little biased, I think they did a very nice job!

Cindy is in Alabama helping Jess with the birth of our 3rd grandbaby. So, while mom gets some much needed rest, May-May takes granddaughter Kam out for a girl’s day, which naturally started with a pedicure…

Then progressed to other things, like shopping, lunch, etc. What is the common theme you ask? “$$$” 😉

…as a 5TH GRADER! I can remember like it was yesterday when Baby Kam was pulling all of my DVDs out of the rack and spreading them all over the floor. Now, she’s such a smart and pretty young lady…her mom says she can still make a mess, though. 😉

Family visits often mean early Christmas presents! But first, we need to take a picture, so here we have a pre-present-opening picture of the boys and their Niece Big Sister, Kameran…

Kam passes out the presents…

The best present of all!

Well, Halloween is here again. Given his affinity for candy, I’d say this is Adam’s favorite holiday! This year the boys wanted to be Peter Pan and Captain Hook…

…and they weren’t the only one’s! Kameran and Oliver made an adorable Hermione and Harry Potter…
