Happy Friday in October that still feels like summer, but I'm not complaining! Linking up with Kelly for Seven Quick Takes :)
I keep forgetting to write about Brendan's big milestone - he can ride a bike! Right after he turned five, Phil decided to teach him and it took a few days of practice (honestly he was so shaky in the beginning that I thought he was too young) before he could do it on his own.
