A Hot Halloween

Everyone’s favorite day – Halloween – was a warm surprise this year, with temperatures spiking to 78 degrees before a big storm hit and cooled everything off. To make sure and get maximum candy before the threat of wind, rain and tornados, the boys teamed up with their buddies Aidan and Gavin to scour the…

A Sweet Day

After a four-year hiatus, we returned to the land of chocolate – Hershey – for some sweets, rides and other treats. After a nearly 12- hour day, complete with a surprise bonus of family joining in the afternoon, it was a great, albeit exhausting, time.

Go Go, Halloween!

While we all had a great time last year, O was an even more willing participant in the fun of Halloween. With two school parades (one of which went better than the other), a block party and 90 minutes of trick-or-sprinting, it was quite a day!

Earning Our Weight in Candy

We were very lucky to head back to Disney for another Halloween party evening. This year, we were a bit more candy-focused and managed to trick or treat our way into at least 10 pounds of sugary goodness. The rides and treats were fun, too, and we even caught up with Mickey in his costume!

Halloween in the ‘hood

We spent our first Halloween in Cherrydale, and it didn’t disappoint! We kicked off celebrations at school, with a Halloween parade, and ended back at home for a pizza-filled block party. The great, spooky decorations at home were the icing on the cake!

Halloween at Disney

We ended our Disney trip with a not-so-spooky night at the Magic Kingdom celebrating Halloween. We enjoyed rides, got candy, saw special shows and even had dinner at a beautiful table in Cinderella’s castle (meeting a few princesses along the way). A magical way to top off our last full day!

Halloween 2016

Halloween was a lot crazier than last year, with the arrival of Owen just a few days before and a very motivated pair of four-year-olds to wrangle during a sprint for candy on Halloween night. We wouldn’t have had it any other way!

Fourth Time’s a Charm

It took a few years, but – man – Colin has embraced Halloween in all its glory! While a little of a slow start at the school Halloween parade, the boy let loose for trick or treating with buddy Aidan. It was 1.5 hours of running up and down hills and stairs until his Darth…

A Hershey Halloween

Since one chocolate factory wasn’t enough for C, we hit two in two weeks with a trip to Hershey Park in the Dark. There were rides, trick or treating and even a zoo, making this chocolate-themed experience hard to beat!
