I took Titus on a walk to my mom's house which is about a 15 min walk away. On the way there, I walked down Palm Ave with no sidewalk. Although it is the shortest distance... It is not fun to push a stroller in the gutter and have cars driving pretty close to you. When I got to my mom's house, I called the city and requested a side walk be put in on that street. They took my request and told me to call them back in 10 or 15 days to see the progress on it. I was happy they seemed like they cared even though I know a sidewalk isn't going to appear there overnight. (If anyone else cares to request a sidewalk on Palm between the streets of Beechwood Pl and Maplewood Pl approximately, you can call 951-826-5311). Palm does have room for a sidewalk and I am only requesting for it to be on at least one side of the road.
On the way back to my house I walked the longer way and took Brockton which is parallel to Palm, but it has a sidewalk. It was a lovely walk and the weather was perfect.
And it's as if the walk was meant to end where we live. The sidewalk disappears after you pass our house. You can ignore the dead grass. That's not so lovely.

There were Raccoons in the street when we got home from D land. It's always exciting to see raccoons around the neighborhood. Usually they are running along the gutter, climbing a tree, or running for cover in a storm drain. Wood Streets are home to many raccoons and you can tell by the official "Raccoon Crossing" sign that is displayed a few streets away at a blind turn.
Justin and I thought it was cool to see the raccoons. There were four of them which is crazy. We parked on the street in front of our house because our driveway is being repaired by the city. The raccoons were close so justin tried to shoo them away before I got out. The raccoons wouldn't shoo so I stayed in the car. Justin got a flashlight and tried to scare them, but he resorted to the hose. Meanwhile the raccoons were hanging out by the car with me inside. They were right outside the door and we even have their muddy paw prints on the bumper of the car. The hose seemed to work, but not as well as you would expect. They still were trying to get past the spraying water to get close to us. Weird. So, two trips later with the baby and baby gear, we were inside safe from the determined raccoons.
It was actually funny to see the shock on Justin's face as the raccoons tried to charge past the shooting water
Here are two bad picture of the raccoons. There were four of them. You can see some glowing eyes. The blurry one has 3 sets of glowing eyes. Has anyone else had a raccoon experience like this?
Although the raccoons got crazy that night, we sure had a great time at D land! Here are some pic of us hanging out.
Titus hung out in the Moby.
Justin and Titus just wouldn't look at the camera!

Halloween began with my nephew's Halloween parade. He does it every year at his preschool. Casey and I used to be in these parades when we were at this preschool too. So, Caleb is Luke Skywalker. He is just so cute!
Titus decided to dress up for the parade too. Too bad this October has been mostly 90 degrees. It was a little hot for his fuzzy Max costume. We stayed in the shade.
Later that night we went to Sandals Church Trunk n Treat. Justin made sure to go all out on him and Titus' costumes. He wanted them to be Carol and Max from Where the Wild Things Are.
The Costumes turned out soo cute. Justin's mom is awesome because she made it happen! Look how little Titus looks next to the big monster.
Here I am with them. I just dressed up like Max's mom from the movie.... or I kinda didn't have a costume. I was ok with that. My first year without a costume. It was actually nice to not have to worry about getting ready. I just got my boys ready.
Our friends, The Kowalski's, have a little boy too. Here are the dad's and their coordinating babies.
Titus had fun at Trunk n Treat. He didn't get much candy... I think it's because he can't say "Trick or Treat" yet.
Halloween was fun!
