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!
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!
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!
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!

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!
Even more so than last year, Colin got into the Halloween spirit. The evening started with a Halloween parade at school, and ended with trick-or-treating with his best bud. Although he could only eat one thing from his haul (goldfish), the journey to candy was truly the adventure.
Colin got more out of Halloween than last year, namely being awake for more than an hour or two in a row! Brian took full advantage, spending the prior weekend turning his parents’ garage into an animated haunted house. And, the family set out on Halloween day to spend a frightful night in the country…
