This past weekend we kicked off the Halloween festivities early with an old time trick or treat at a local historical park. We did it a year or two ago..I think I was pregnant with Sydney. (Lynelle?)
This year we had Harry Potter and his wand by our side. Grandma Charlie made an amazing Harry Potter cape. We also had this cutie peacock waddle back into our lives again. Another Grandma Charlie original. I think it was this age that Henry did the bee two years in a row. Love to get plenty of wear and tear out of these amazing costumes...so Sydney is doing the peacock thing again this year....although she thinks she is beautiful butterfly.
Henry is a Power Ranger...some fancy one..not the classic primary color Power Ranger...
We were joined on this cold evening by some favorite friends.
And I may have brought a thermos filled with hot cider and a little mama syrup to make the cold evening walk a little more festive for us parents.
Sometimes these types of outings sound like so much work, but once you are there and you see your kiddos running out in the fresh crisp fall air.... And everyone is happy and together, you are reminded that stealing away these moments are what is so important.
What early Halloween festivities are you enjoying?
