A Halloweekend

We had a fun and busy weekend. Our weekend started on Friday when we took off with the kids planning on going to Busch Gardens but had to change that plan when we got there and found out that our season passes had expired :( We decided to go to Jamestown instead since the last time we were there Cameron was 6 months old. Boy, oh boy has that place changed since they had the 400th anniversary in 2007. We went to the Jamestown Settlement where the kids got to play in a replicated Indian town, climb aboard 3 recreated boats, and run around in a copy of the Jamestown Settlement, complete with settlers in costume doing things like blacksmithing, carpentry, and the boys favorite- musketry demonstrations. I sure wished I had brought my camera, I did try to take some pictures on my phone, but I can't figure out how to get them off! Suffice it to say it was really cool! The kids could've spent all day there.Then on Saturday we had a community Halloween Party and our Ward's Trunk or Treat. I made Cameron and Gavin's costumes this year which was a first for me and I was really glad that they turned out! It was great to get a dry run in them before the big day. All three boys completely filled their buckets with candy- what are we going to do with it all? We just might be recycling some to give out on Halloween. Here is a preview of the little goblins:

That's all you get until next week! Sunday night we had the Tolers come over for what has become an October tradition in our home, making and decorating donuts! They are really tasty and really easy! The kids decorated some masks and we played boardgames until past the little ghouls bedtimes! What a treat. I just love this time of year!
