Halloween Festival at the Park

This past week Natalie ran a high fever everyday, and it finally went away on Friday. Luckily I'd been able to get out of the house everyday to do various errands, but Natalie and Sophia were dying to go to the park. On Saturday a local park had a fall festival. As you'll see in the pictures, it was beautiful weather and the park is very picturesque.

First there were some mandatory head in the hole witch cut outs...



Then we went trick or treating "on the trail"- a walking trail through the woods. Every 100 feet or so there were tables of local businesses giving out candy and brochures/coupons. Amongst other things, we scored some pain relief gel from a chiropractor, coupons to chick fil A and apple bees. Sweet. I had yet to explore the trails in this park, and I was thankful for the oppurtunity to enjoy the fall leaves and get out in the woods. And my kids liked the candy.

Here's a pic of peaceful Natalie and Sophia doing a fake smile. More like elvis, but whatev.


And we picked out two pumpkins ($1 each! Sponsors of the event offset the costs). See how John is just carrying around that kettle corn bag like someone's going to steal it? Smart man, I totally ruined my dinner with half that bag.



Here's a picture of another walking trail around the lake. This is a popular place to take family pictures. Already on my calendar for next year...






And the best costume of the night goes to the two cupcakes with fluffy shirts and cherry hats. One had a foam banana across her shirt; the other girl had sprinkles. Totally copying that whenever my kids stop wanting to be princesses...I took a picture of their back because I felt awkward taking a picture when they could actually see me...


And here's my feeble attempt to get a picture of the girls with the fall leaves. They were ready for home, and not having it. Natalie hates looking at the camera and Sophia just doesn't care anymore. But leaves make great hats, don't you think?
