Halloween Parade!

Today was our neighborhood Halloween parade and party! 

Bright and early at 10am we all gathered at a neighbor's house. We were expecting the local fire truck to show up as our parade escort, but they never came. We're thinking they had an emergency to attend to. Luckily, one of our neighbors is a state trooper so he brought along a police car as our parade escort. Not as exciting as the fire truck, but it got the job done.

So...all of the kids lined up:
and we started our parade around the block! Did I mention it was freezing?!  Yeah, around 40 and super windy-it was very cold!
Avery and Gabe walking in the parade:
I didn't get as many pics as I wanted to because I was carrying Cassandra the entire time. After the parade we went back to the neighbor's house and  had a little party in their garage...complete with TONS of food-breakfast pizzas, bagels, doughnuts, hot cocoa, pastries, cupcakes, etc. It was very nice and the kids all had a blast!

This is one tradition that makes us love this neighborhood!
