In the morning, we took them to my parents' coffee group at Starbucks, where they were passed around and generally admired. Asher loved having his sippy cup, and kept it in his mouth almost the whole time. It is strange for me to see my baby doing a big kid thing like that, but it was time.
Then we decided to go to Ikea. Eric and I have been discussing some changes to our bedroom, since neither one of us is particularly happy with our room the way it is now. So we picked out a new wardrobe, and soon Eric will get to demolish the closet that was built into our bedroom. The boys were in their costumes in the stroller:
Another big reason Eric goes to Ikea-- their meatballs. So our trip involved a necessary stop for lunch, and with each adult meal you get a free jar of baby food (I had never noticed the baby food there before, but it's there! I notice all kinds of new things now that I have children of my own). Each boy got a jar of bananas, and now I think they are ready to make the Ikea cafeteria a regular stop of their own! Asher LOVED, LOVED, LOVED his bananas! How fitting for a monkey!
Then we came home and tried to get them napping-- no luck. So instead we had a photo shoot, which resulted in many adorable photos (see the top of this post).

It really was a happy first Halloween for us, and I am looking forward to next year when Benjamin and Asher will understand what's going on.
