I was so consumed with writing about our Peru trip, many things fell by the wayside. I was downloading photos from this weekend and came across the Scarecrow Stroll. I also had photos of apple picking from two weeks ago.
We were so busy this fall that we went kind of late in the season. We D had to work hard to get the apples.
Daddy and daughter. Even though it was a hurried event squeezed in after an already full day of CCD and the town street fair, they had a great time. We didn’t get a chance to get hot apple cider donuts which is why I really wanted to go. *SIGH* Perhaps next year.
I was so tired from the setup and clean up that I slept until 8 the next day. And my body ached. Talk about being out of shape!
Saturday was the last soccer game of the season. I thought I had downloaded a picture, but nope. Tennis. Mass. There was some more Halloween themed events going on, like pumpkin carving contest. Soso was so disappointed that we didn’t participate. I just couldn’t do it. Another one of those “hopefully next year” item.
Sunday was the parade, the pumpkin drop and the 4 hours of trick or treating. No video this year. If you actually want to see the drop in action, go here for last year’s.
I couldn’t get a decent photo to post without getting other faces in. This was at the end of the day around our neighborhood. The photos I took with the hat more down all hid her face… I should have used the flash.
I really like this picture. She looks so purposeful. I got so many compliments on her costume! I was surprised because it was so basic… but people really loved the color combination and the stocking. She was easy to spot with her orange hat when we were in a more crowded neighborhood.
I should have taken a picture of her stash. Boy did she get a ton of candy. Thank goodness that we’re giving most of it away to soldiers overseas.
I love Fall. I always pick Spring as my favorite season, but I realized this weekend that I actually have more fun in the fall. There are so many fun things to do…apple picking, hayrides, corn mazes, driving to see changing leaves, hiking in the crisp mountain air, jumping into a pile of leaves… if only we had enough time. Hope everyone else had a wonderful fall and Halloween!
