We've been having a stretch of beautiful fall weather here. We took advantage of it on the weekend and went for a walk in one of our local parks. Bennett had a great time and was pooped by the time we got home. In two of the pictures you can see some woman checking him out -I'm assuming it's because he's so cute in that hat. You can also see a picture of me stealing a smooch. He's pretty good at giving out kisses but sometimes I have to steal one.

I think it's safe to say she was checking out Bennett in that TOTALLY ADORABLE hat! (Where do I get one?)

By the way, beautiful photo of you Barbara. You don't look a day over 42.

I was just feeling fortunate to check on you on a day you posted.

I am even luckier that Kara is putting herself in line with your aunt.

Extra cake for me next year! When you are....looks like 28 to me.

Jim: Sure, yeah, she was checking YOU out I guess...

Kara: (shhhh -don't tell Jim but I agree that it's safe to say she was checking out Bennett). As for the hat, I believe it came from Sportchek - I love it!! I have a pink matching one but unfortunately my head's too big - or maybe it's my hair...

Oh and by the way - NO birthday cake for you!!!!!!!! Ever!!

Barbara: I'll bake you your own cake!! I'm not surprised that someone with such a fine first name has a great ability to estimate the true age of a person!

Hi Barbara, Jim, Bennett & Murphy:
Glad to see the beautiful pictures. The weather certainly has been grand - we are having the "summer that wasn't"! I can't get over how tall Bennett is getting. I loved the "snuck kiss" - Keep it up. There will be a time when you won't be able to do that anymore - - so take advantage while you can. It is so clear how much you two love Bennett, it just melts my heart and fills me with gratitude.

Re Bennett's Birthday present - I won't be around for that, so I will leave his gift with Keith & Aline - ok?

I hope you have a wonderful trip to Disney. Enjoy.

Love,
Auntie Bonnie
