Dan was gone on a trip today so after school the kids and I headed out to Marana Pumpkin Patch for some Trick or Treating fun. They had a blast (minus a few Henry meltdowns) and it was so much fun, we'll be back again for sure next year! Then we got home and Charlie realized that kids were still trick or treating in our neighborhood (darn!) so we headed out for a quick trip around the block to grab some more goodies. All in all they made out like bandits this year and we may have several dentist trips to make after the coming weeks.
Ready for the train ride.
The jumping pillow was a hit for Charlie and Jane. They could have stayed on that thing forever. Henry had to be coaxed into it, but once he was he loved it!
Jane blended in nicely with the jumping pillow
Sir Henry gettin' some air!
They had a hay mountain that was fun to climb
Henry preferred to explore the mountains tunnel system
And this was the source of the Henry meltdowns. The boy loved this train.
Visiting the train again. Jane holding on for dear life.
There was a costume contest for all ages. Next year we'll have to get creative.
Digging into their loot
Jane and Henry found a "head" in the tunnels. Rather than be scared, Henry turned it into a soccer ball.
Trick or treating in the neighborhood. Henry had to be reminded not to enter everyone's house when they opened the door. He also refused to use his bag. All candy had to be clutched in his little sweaty hands. The Twix did not survive the night.
They loved all the halloween decorations.
