Wee Witches Weekend


We made our annual trip to the Witches Festival with Grandma and Grandpa Turner over UEA. This is the traditional picture that must be taken every. single. year.  Grandma loves the pumpkins. . .



There were all kinds of things for the kids to do. Many of them cost money, however, and we are very cheap. But these coloring pages were totally free!  The kids had a great time with them. They also had a witch scavenger hunt. Which we failed at.  Anybody see the witch catching bugs?



We even saw real, live witches!  The girls wanted their picture taken with her, but were still kind of shy. . .



Seth wouldn't  get near ANY of the witches, real or fake. The girls were a little bit more comfortable with this witch than the last one.



For some reason, Seth wouldn't sit by any witches, but he would sit next to this spider. I do think, however, that he had to talk himself into it. . .


Watching the ducks. . .
Notice how he is holding his picture in his hand? He refused to put it in the stroller and insisted on carrying it around with him. Well, it slipped while he was sitting on the railing and landed right in the water. He was a little bummed, but he dealt with the disapointment. And this is the only thing that he remembers and talks about from the whole day!



And what trip to Gardner Village would be complete without Grandpa sneaking away to Sweet Afton's for a treat!  Aren't these the cutest elephants you've ever seen?

3 people think my kids are cute!:

Cute! We have so many fun fall/halloween activities but I'm horrible at actually taking the kids. I think you've inspired me to do it. At least for the cute pictures.

Yes, the girls are very comfortable with Emily, but you shouldn't call her a witch.
