Halloween night was a blast!! We always stop in at a neighbor's house for chili and then hit the streets....Above, we have my 5 little pumpkins hitting their first house....below....we have ALL the GOODS at the end of the night...Yes, I enjoyed some chocolate:
Last year, LL couldn't even walk...this year...she's running with the crowd from door to door...Amazing how different things are in one year:This year we have 8 yr. old 80's girl, 7 yr. old 70's disco girl, a 5 and 3 yr. old Transformer (george refused to wear his costume for 2nd year in a row), and 1 yr. old bumble bee:
Oh, but our bumble bee was just precious:
I got everyone to pose for me before heading out the door:
But my favorite part of Halloween day was going on our ADVENTURE Hike/bike ride...I told the kids to grab their bikes cause we were going exploring (after we finished up our pancakes that morning)...... There are some old gravel roads in our neighborhood we'd never been down....so we went:We had the best time out in the woods and walking down old paths...we found a horse farm, a creek and lots of open running space....
Just a cute shot I caught:LL didn't seem to want to stay on the path and would take off running from everyone to make us chase her down....so our crazy little girly got a fun ride:
It was a fun time ALL day!! But I love riding bikes with my kids and hiking around in the beautiful weather more than anything else.....AND....FINALLY....My Little Sister's Blog:
