7th Week of Violette

Here are more pictures from her 7th week… We had a PJ Day at daycare, went to Mom’s work Halloween party as a chicken (unfortunately no pictures – bad parents), went on a long walk to Inman Square to visit Mom’s labmates, went to a fun family costume party with lots of cute dressed up babies (again, not enough pictures, and sadly none of the full chicken costume), and our friends came over for a first visit for the two baby lab cousins (and you guessed it, no pictures).

Zinzinnati Oktoberfest

We celebrated Christmas with the Fiala’s a bit early this year.  We had Christmas at Oktoberfest in Cincinnati.  It was a great time with family and German beers and food and music.  We made great memories and loved seeing Thadd‘s place in the city.  We got to go to the Great American Ballpark and see the Red‘s play twice.  We went on a steamboat ride too! We loved the weiner dog races, as well as the barrel and beer stein races.  Jeannette also got to meet up with an old friend from MIT at the festival – it was the place to be! There was fun polka music and we would be remiss to not mention the great festival food again.  We had LOTS of strudel, brats with sauerkraut, and cream puffs.

We have video of every wiener dog race heat – they were super cute and funny – but here is just one and also some of the barrel and stein races too.
