October

The weather has finally cooled in Nevada. Our neighborhood pool closed for the season. The busy season of Thanksgiving and Christmas are about the begin. Cooper and I are headed to Chicago this month to visit with Sloan and celebrate Coop's 5th birthday. (I'm also hoping for a Cubs game too, fingers crossed.)
