    Halloween and Things

    Wednesday, October 26, 2011

    My Grandma said she'd be checking in here to see what we're up to for Halloween and so I figured I better get something up here!! (Hi Grandma!)  Two weekends ago we made our yearly trip to our favorite local orchard/pumpkin patch. Lucy had her very first "caramel apple" (she really didn't get any caramel - Benjamin ate all of that!). And we all enjoyed the petting zoo animals. The weather has definitely taken a turn toward winter these past couple of days, so it was good we did our orchard visiting while the weather was still pretty mild.

    We have a number of Halloween-ey events ahead of us and we're all so excited to throw on our costumes and have fun! Thursday night we are hosting Mike's running club for another Halloween-themed run and after party (we did this last year, too). The garage is already decked out with spooky creatures and cobwebs!! Friday night we are going to the first ever Haunted Hallways, which promises to be a fun event in downtown Rochester. On Saturday the kids will be dropped off at Grandma Chris and Grandpa Ed's house for their annual HallZOOween celebration at the Minnesota Zoo. Then, of course, we will be Trick-or-Treating around our neighborhood on Monday night.  Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday.  I can't wait!!
