Porter thought this spider tunnel was the scariest thing he had ever seen.
Since the Mitch Park Trunk or Treat was way too crowded to be any fun, we had to squeeze in something else Halloweenie. We were thinking about Haunt the Zoo, but heard it was more crowded than usual. Then Jared found out he would be out of town the week before Halloween...Granny V volunteered to take his place and go with us to Storybook Forest at Lake Arcadia. It was really crowded when we got there, but they controlled the stream of people pretty well and it wasn't too overwhelming.
More importantly, the boys had a blast. Porter immediately stopped smiling every time he saw the camera...
He also had his Easter mentality of getting a piece of candy and immediately eating it. I tried to stop him but he got wasn't worth it. A sucker solved the problem.
After we walked through the forest, we waited in line for a hayride and then roasted marshmallows and made Smores at the big bonfires. We left smelling like smoke and didn't get home until after 9:00 on a school night, but the boys had a lot of fun and were already asking to go back the next day.
