Fall Trip 5

Day 6: Our final destination for the trip was my sister's family's home in northwestern WI. This meant that they would get to see two of their cousins. And since we were visiting on Halloween we went trick-or-treating with those cousins. My kids have never been trick-or-treating since every year previous they'd attended our church's Harvest Fest instead. They enjoyed the evening but I think it was more the time with Joey and Jesse than the actually trick-or-treating. Another result of Harvest Fest is that my kids assume that they dress as a group. Lydia had received a hand-me-down Tinkerbell costume so Evan and Hans came up with the idea of going as Peter Pan and Captain Hook. This idea kept rolling and Joey went as Smee (the other pirate in Peter Pan) and Jesse went as Peter's little brother, Michael (pic. 1).

My sister and I wore 50 cent tinsel wigs and blinking clown noses. Festive. Our costumes were outdone by the gorilla at one of the small business we stooped at while trick-or-treating (pic. 2). None of the kids were sure of it to start and Lydia still talks about the "big, big monkey that was scary" even though he did nothing to scare the kids except stand there. :)

Day 7: Saturday morning we headed back home to find Dad. We had a great trip and hope that everyone enjoyed being seen as much as we enjoyed seeing them. One of the best parts is that we get to see everyone and then some in just three and a half weeks for Thanksgiving. Yeah for family! Love you.
