The big boys were so much fun! They were old pros in no time, ringing door bells, saying thank you and avoiding spooky decorations. Mindy and I did not stop laughing from the time we left the house. They were so funny trotting along collecting candy, comparing treats and shouting thank you on the way to the next house. We had only made it about two blocks when they decided they were done walking so I made the trek back to the house to get the wagon. Once I returned with the wagon and we loaded it up with some pretty heavy boys and their loaded bags we made our way through the streets. They did so great and we tricked and treated until time was up. At 8:00 we started back to the house. We live on a golf course and my bright idea was to take the cart path back to the house to avoid the crowds and stay off the street- a short cut. Well, in case you did not know the cart path is not lit at night and it was pitch black. We continued down the path for a while until we reached a DEAD END. Again, we could not stop laughing. We had no idea where we were, what hole we were on or which way to go! It was awesome. Mindy with a baby in a stroller and me pulling a loaded wagon with two tired boys and we are LOST somewhere in the middle of a golf course. GREAT. So Mindy leaves us and walks around looking for a way out. We found a not so legal way which might have required a little off roading with the wagon and stroller, but we finally found the correct path again and it dumped us out right in front of our house! It may not have been a short cut, but it did make for quite the Halloween adventure and a great story to tell the husbands when we finally got back.
It was a wild and fun night and proved that trick or treating with friends is way more fun! There was not a dull moment all night. I have a feeling there are not going to be very many dull moments in our lives for many years to come. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
