My kids love Halloween. I think that they look forward to it as much as Christmas or Easter. So I was excited to be able to take them out again. This year Ada was a princess, Liam was Wolverine (two pictures below because he wanted one with a serious face), and Helena was a vampire, which she had to explain to a lot of people because she didn’t have fangs, despite the fact that she really did look good.
We walked around for an hour and their bags were filled and that was just Colfax and Dupont from 31st to 33rd. So I suggested that we come back home (we were only two short blocks away) and dump everything out, and then go back out again. They thought that was the greatest idea ever – as if we were breaking some rule. So we did, then went back out to Aldrich all the way down to 35th Street and back.
There were a lot of kids out this year – the weather was super nice (upper 40s) – which made it much more fun for the kids although we never did see anyone that we knew.
