Heading to the UVA Lawn (to trick-or-treat with about a 1000 other kids) with Haven's after-school babysitter Julie. Jen helps Haven prepare for her grand entrance.

The PACT lab threw Bethany an amazing surprise 40th bday party Saturday night. Brian, the girls, Stan and Julie (who all knew!) and Bethany went to Chris Greene Lake Saturday afternoon. After returning home from a run by the lake, a very sweaty Bethany opened the front door and was greeted by screams of “surprise” as her lab (including some lab alum that had come from out of town for the event) filled the entryway. The extravaganza included trays of delicious homemade sushi, chocolate torte & pear crumble, wonderful decorations and flowers, rock band, and a soundtrack of the hit songs in Canada in 1973.
Lots of pictures & videos to follow… (but in the meantime, THANK YOU PACT lab!!)

Indian art work by the girls at the Hollymead Heritage Festival (Joni of course had a great time doing her art work, but was not so happy to be photographed!)

Joni was a little envious that Bethany received a crown!
