We were lucky to celebrate twice.
Remember Sullivan from the last post? He was kind enough to let us join him at his neighborhood’s fall festival.
There were so many things to do: pony rides (we got there too late), a petting zoo, popcorn, cotton candy, bouncy houses, loud music, and a train (Brooks’ favorite).
Here they are – Spiderman and a train conductor.
This is Sullivan’s Mom with Silas. After this picture was taken he was asleep 5 minutes later.
Too much celebration.
The next day was Halloween. It was perfect weather – honestly it feels like most days down here are beautiful. We got the kids dressed fully expecting to visit maybe three houses since trick or treating didn’t start until 7. And I really wanted to pass out candy since I’ve never really had the chance to do participate in this tradition. Well, two of us made it to three houses. Silas fell asleep after the first house (across the street) and then he was out. So I did get my wish to pass out most of the candy.
I love this picture. All he could move was his eyes, mouth, and hands. It reminded me of Randy in the movie, “A Christmas Story.”
Along with our two boys we also went with a few friends from the hood. This was the only picture I could get of them together.
And of course, Brooks didn’t want to be in the picture. I almost fell over after we took this shot.
Two of Brooks’ preschool/neighborhood playmates – Gabriel the lion and Hudson the dinosaur.
We put them both in the wagon, but it didn’t last long.
Enjoying the first of three treats of the night.
It was as much for the adults as it was for the kids.
Hope everyone had a great holiday!
