For Halloween Brian and I took the boys to downtown Huntington for the street festival. Main street is blocked off and the kids are allowed to trick-or-treat at the retail shops. Both boys fell asleep on the way over, so we got a good walk in before any trick-or-treating took place. Benny really didn't wake up till it was time to play by the beach. Nate was still a little shy......but I think all the people were a little overwhelming after just waking up from a nap :) This was a great place to people watch, the costumes were great (both kids and adults). The cutest costume I saw was this little baby jail bird in a wagon they had added bars to and the older son was a police officer! This was such a unique trick-or-treating experience because we were by the beach and we went to stores instead of houses. We left the treat bags in the car and neither of the boys noticed so we made it one more year without going sugar crazy. I hope everyone had a happy Halloween.

Friday we checked out the Children's Museum in La Habra. They were having their Halloween celebration, so they were offering crafts, games, a costume parade, and Santa and Mrs. clause reading stories. Nate decided since they had been super heroes all week for other Halloween activities that he wanted to be a cowboy. Benny wants to be just like his brother so he dressed up as a cowboy too. The kids had a great time with their friends.
