This year we participated in our church's trunk or treat a few days prior to Halloween. The kids enjoyed all the different booths and all the candy.
Abby was supposed to be Thomas to match our booth but at the last minute she decided she didn't want to be a choo choo but a princess instead. I was shocked because she actually said princess. She amazes me every day with how well she talks. I have to remind myself constantly that she is only two. She talks in full sentences and has complete conversations.
Ben was a knight.
Here's our booth at church. We did the same thing last year. I'm always amazed at the people who are impressed by our simple decoration. However, there are a lot of Thomas fans out there. Maybe we will try something a little more elaborate next year. We'll see.
For Ben's fall break we headed down to the Children's Museum since it has been awhile since we last went. However, when we arrived, we were informed that the museum isn't open on Mondays after Labor Day. Well, that gave us an excuse to check out a church that I had heard about from friends.
This is Trader's Point Christian Church in Whitestown, IN. What a fun play area! The kids had so much fun. I wish we had arrived there a little earlier because after 90 minutes, Abby was ready for a nap but the boys were having a great time and would have gladly stayed all day.
There were 4 or 5 levels. The largest indoor play area I've ever seen. Better than the old school Discovery Zone from my childhood. And it was FREE!!!
There's a rock climbing wall.
Abby and Sam...Queen and King of the mountain!
I climbed up the top with Abby. There were 4 or 5 twisty slides. There was a small toddler area that Abby enjoyed and a enclosed basketball area.
The next day was Halloween. We went to visit Daddy at his office to bring cupcakes. I forgot to take a picture since we were there for such a short time. Then we headed to the library, then Sam went to preschool. After supper, we bundled up and went trick or treating in our neighborhood. According to our neighbors, we were the only ones on our street so the couple of houses we stopped at gave the kids a ton of candy.
