Haunted Forest

It was more like the Soggy Forest tonight. We went to the Parks and Rec Annual Haunted Forest. It is a free event for families and has lots of games and crafts for the kids. Alex and his friend, Amberly, dressed up as Rapunzel and Prince Charming and acted it out while the little kid's hay ride passed by. He started playing that part four years ago and I was surprised that the costume still fits him.

It was only misting a bit when we first got there, but then it began alternating with pretty hard rain, making it a pretty crappy night. Luckily it was about 70 degrees. They ended up letting Alex and Amberly and a few other volunteers leave early because they were getting drenched. Most of the other activities were under tents and continued.

I forgot to bring the camera, of course, so I won't be posting any pictures of Hannah and Shauna in their costumes or a sopping wet Prince Charming! Mike and I were pretty bored, since Hannah and Shauna did not want us following them around. Luckily it is a very small area and we could keep a good eye on them from anywhere, since a lot of people stayed home because of the rain. Hannah told us that she didn't want us following them around and Shauna told us that they were ELEVEN, we should stop following them! Hmmm, no wonder I miss those babies I used to have!
