This is Halloween
The boulevard down the street from our house is a popular trick-or-treating destination, so we took Nico over for a walk in his stroller. He seemed to have a really good time watching the bigger kids in their costumes, and we got some compliments on our costumes as well. A tiny samurai kimono showed up in a box of hand-me-downs, and it felt like it was meant to be since MB and I still had the really nice samurai robes my mom made for us a few years ago. Unfortunately it didn't occur to me to take a photo of Nico alone in his costume until I'd already changed him into his pajamas. Therefore, you'll have to make do with this creatively-edited picture of Nico and me that was taken by my friend bibliophile81 in front of her parents' house:
