Sara Beth trick or treated for the first time this Halloween. Our little ladybug , and she had grown old enough to understand how the holiday worked, and, unlike last year, she did not get sick. I rang the door bell at the houses as she did not feel comfortable doing that herself, but she had a great time getting all the candy. Fortunately, she forgot all about her bag of candy the next day, so we avoided having to care for a sugar infused 2 year old.

We went to the zoo last weekend to celebrate Heather's birthday. We took the train to avoid the traffic and the hassle of parking, and Sara Beth enjoyed the whole ride. She saw Heather's phone in the stroller and began to pretend to call people on it.

In the zoo, at the reptile house, I think it was about feeding time for all the snakes and lizards. They were all crawling around their cages and up the walls. Sara Beth ran from one window to the next looking at the active reptiles. The only place that she didn't want to go near was the alligators'.

Of all the animals at the zoo, Sara Beth liked the fish the best. I suspect it was because she could get up close to them. The fish tank had clear plexiglass sides right at Sara Beth's height. She ran around and around the aquarium following the fish as they swam right on the other side of the glass.

Heather now owns an iPhone and she loves it. It allows her to keep all her lists and calendar items all in one place. Sara Beth loves the phone too. Heather found an app that will ready books out loud. Sara Beth will sit with the device and press the button to turn the pages herself.
