Storybook Forest

Wills' second opportunity to wear his costume was tonight. We headed to Lake Arcadia and went to the Storybook Forest. We met up with the Fong family and strolled through the forest full of nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Wills had a great time!

His favorite part by far!

It was definitely a good thing we went early! They opened at 5:30 and we parked our car at exactly 5:30 and there was already a line to get into the park and then another line to get into the forest. I think it was well worth the wait and the $5 and I think Wills will have an even better time next year!

2nd Annual Halloween Party!

This afternoon Wills hosted his 2nd Annual Halloween Party. I had every intention of taking individual pictures of all the little ones as they arrived. Unfortunately, I got distracted and didn't do it. We had lots of cute costumes this year so I am really bummed I didn't follow through on this. I think we managed to get just about everyone at some point. I am definitely going to be a better photographer next year!

I love Halloween and today was just the start of several fun things we have in store over the next week and half. Luckily, those activities will not be at our house!

St. Francis

This weekend the Catholic church celebrated St. Francis of Assisi. St. Francis is the patron saint of animals. So our church had a little get together on Saturday morning and you are invited to bring your pets to have them blessed by Father Rick. After the year Holly has been through, we already know she is blessed! Of course, we didn't think it would hurt to take her for an actual blessing. :)

There was a scripture reading, a blessing, and a prayer. Then the animals got sprinkled with holy water.

It had to be the first cold day of fall too!

This is pretty much all the dogs were doing to one another. Some major booty sniffing going on!

We couldn't get Holly to sit still long enough for a good picture. She was just way too excited and way to busy checking everything out. There were lots of dogs, a few cats, and a turtle and she wanted to see all of them. She had a great time, so we will definitely be taking her back next year!
