Some of the family was camping at Mauthe Lake the weekend we were in town, and there were lots of fun fall activities planned for everyone to enjoy there.
Jacinta was ready to hop right into the fall spirit.
The setting was perfect.
While some were carving pumpkins on Saturday afternoon, Jacinta preferred to wander. She wanted to make sure I was getting my exercise.
That evening the kids got decked out in their Halloween costumes. Veronica is obviously a fire-breathing dragon.
Though there was some question of whether or not dragons can fly.
Time for a costume parade!
Jacinta’s wandering tendencies meant she had to be contained by Daddy. Marching in formation just isn’t her thing.
Time to Trick or Treat!
And what kid doesn’t enjoy Trick or Treating?
Then some games were in order.
And though I missed getting pictures of the pumpkin carving in progress, Veronica did get to pose with her pumpkin she “carved.” With a marker.
Sunday was another chance for everyone to get together and play. Even Jacinta joined in chasing the bubbles.
Her wanderer’s heart did contemplate escape now and then.
But a little impromptu song and dance drew her back in.
There was also some time for fishing, which Veronica was looking forward to.
With a little help, she reeled one in for Papae.
She was excited to get up close and personal with the fish.
Eventually she even caught one with her cane pole. She was pretty disappointed to have to throw it back in. Unfortunately I missed all the action on that one, as I was on Jacinta duty back on shore and not on the pier.
We had lots of fun over the weekend, and it was great being able to spend time with everyone.
Thanks to all whose planning and hard work made it possible!
Next up, a long-awaited fall visit to the The Little Farmer!
