Super Fun Weekend

Our weekend actually began Thursday night when we went on a little Halloween Cruise. It was a boat ride with jack o lanterns displayed and with a pirate theme.


This was our captain.


This is the pirate that zip lined onto our boat.


Some of the Halloween displays they had on the way to the boat dock.




Jeff took off work on Friday so that he could take us to the Zoo.


I thought it was cool how the elephant reaches up for it's food.


The girls being cute.




They both loved the carousel.




This monkey looked so cute eating it's breakfast.


Brooke loved the black footed cats. We had to drag her away from the window.




They had a free flying bats exhibit. There are about 50 bats all clumped together.


They girls were excited for the train ride.




We finally discovered the play area. I don't know how we missed it before. The girls had a ball.


Aubrey worked and worked at this rope ladder and finally mastered it!!


Brookie loved climbing through the turtle shell.


Having fun on the swinging rope bridge.




Aubrey taking her Sis. down the great big slide.


We hit up McDonald's on the way home. Then while the girls were napping Jeff set up the Halloween decorations. The girls were super thrilled about it when they woke up.

Aubrey has always loved the hanging skeleton heads.


Brooke's taking a closer look.


Aubrey showing off her bravery. She's telling the monster, "I'm not afraid of you!"


Both girls waving at the monsters.


When I could finally get them inside for dinner they noticed this in the entry way:


And so this is how they insisted on sitting for dinner so they could interact with the Munk. What funny little monkeys they are.


This witch Grandma Buell gave to us and they love her also. Every time Brooke sees it, she cackles like a witch. It's so cute. Here she is taking a picture of the witch.


Saturday night Jeff took me out for an early birthday date. We went to dinner and to a Halloween dance show, "Thriller." It was so nice to have a night out!

Sunday morning Aubrey and I made Pumpkin bars using the Jack O Lantern pan Grandma Bagley gave us.


I had finished Brooke's ruffle skirt on Friday night so they both wore them to church on Sunday. I think they look darling and girly!


Aubrey was thrilled when she saw the Brooke and her were matching!


Then after church the Aunts and Uncles came over to make Glitter Pumpkins. Aunt Esther set the whole thing up. It was lots of fun.


Here's the crew minus me.


Aubrey showing off her Glitter pumpkin.


Brooke mainly just wiped off the glue and glitter from hers. Oh well, at least she was entertained for a while so I could make one.


Then someone (I can't remember if it was Summer or Esther) asked Aubrey if she was going to dance for us. Both Aubrey and Brooke were thrilled to dance for everyone.




Brooke didn't want to hold hands and dance, so Aubrey pulled out members of the audience to dance with her.






It was a super fun weekend! And we have some fun planned for this week as well! Hurray for the Holidays!

I am not sure if I should cry or just be thrilled with your fun weekend. I so wish we were closer. I miss everyone. And I would love to be so close to someone who loves Halloween as much as Jeff. Love the girls skirts. Too cute.
