This has been a crazy month for our family with animals! At the beginning of October a cat arrived outside our house. We fostered her for several days, and then we had to return her to APET on base. She was a beautiful white kitten, but she started hissing and Ryan was very allergic to her. On Thursday of this week, a puppy arrived on our doorstep. She is about 6 weeks old with white fur and black markings. She is very tiny, probably about 2 lbs. We don't know if we will be able to keep her, but we are enjoying her in the meantime. Her are some photos of her sleeping in my lap!
Our little boy turned four on October 2nd, which happened to fall on a Saturday this year. We invited all of his friends to his birthday party at the Jungle Zone on base. Ryan wanted to have a "Diego" themed party, because we were going to be in the jungle and Diego likes the jungle. It was a great time with friends!
Shortly after Ryan turned 4, we decided to take him for his first hike. Hiking is not by any means new to Ryan... He has hiked a few mountains and strolled on many trails. This hike was his first walking by himself with no stroller in tow. Enjoy the photos (when I get them uploaded!)
