Before heading out to collect some candy, we rode the carousel. Then it was off to find some treats. Emma, of course, was an old pro after last year and it didn't take long for Josh to figure out that you pass over a ticket and you get something in your bucket. He would walk up to the tables, put the bucket on the table and say "here you go." The funny part was that he never really looked to see what was going in the bucket and didn't realize until we were leaving that there was candy in there. In addition to the trick-or-treating, we got to see a fire truck (another obsession for the boy) and go on the haunted train ride, which was just about the perfect amount of exciting and not too scary for the younger set. All in all, it was a fun evening for Emma and Josh up until the point where his mean Mommy wouldn't give him his candy bucket at home and then took off his pirate costume. Can I just say that the boy is all about being a pirate? Thankfully he has a couple more opportunities to wear it this weekend.
Looking for Daddy "Grilla!"
