I don't know what it is about this place, but I absolutely love taking my kids there, and at Halloween time it feels almost magical. Today was one of those perfect days, the wind was blowing we were bundled up with scarves and cute fall sweaters, the leaves were falling, it smelled like apple cider and my kids were angels. What more can you ask for in a day??
This year we printed off the list of Witches they have from the Gardner Village website and went on a witch hunt. It was so fun, and the kids got so excited when they would see one from our list! This is my favorite picture, the kids were being so cute, imitating the witch hula-hooping! :)
We always take a lunch when we go there and today I tried to make ours a little festive. I know, I am a HUGE dork, but my kids get a kick out of it, so I don't care :) Pumpkin shaped pbj's, and vanilla pudding colored orange with ghost sprinkles in it!
My kids also loved playing in all the leaves. You can tell we don't live in an area with big trees, they were so excited to throw them in the air and jump in them.
So many days at home with the kids are difficult, but thank goodness for days like this when you remember how much FUN being a mom is!
