After lunch we headed down to Plymouth for their 2013 Pumpkin Palooza festival that was taking place downtown. Unlike last year, we came prepared with our costumes and bags ready for some fun. There was a decent crowd with some really cute outfits and clever costumes; one dad was dressed up as Luigi, the mom as Princess Peach, and their little boy as Mario with the mustache and everything. Even the dogs were dressed up! We did some trick-or-treating, watched a dance troupe do a really cool choreographed routine to Michael Jackson's "Thriller", saw quite a few scarecrows entered into a contest, and played some games like Pumpkin Golf and Pumpkin Bowling. Both Noah and Mikayla got recognition from other kids going "Look! It's Iron Man!" or "Mommy! Mommy! It's Ariel! See?!" :)
Later, when Mommy came home, she made us some delicious brandied bananas over chocolate ice cream (I'm salivating just thinking about it).
Until next time...
I think maybe I should consider a costume when I do housework...

Somehow Mikayla's pumpkin failed to even reach the bottles on the first try.
In Noah-fashion, his first pumpkin was rolled so hard it almost spilled its guts
Noah's favorite scarecrow
Mikayla's favorite scarecrow
Don't you wish technology was advanced enough to smell this from your computer right now?
