Storybook Forest...one of many Halloween Celebrations!

We went to the "Storybook Forest" this evening with the kids and the Gramma's. It was so cute. Along a hiking trail at the state park, they had volunteers dressed as characters from Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, The Three Little Pigs, Sleeping Beauty, etc, etc. The characters acted out their part while handing out candy. There were also games, a hayride, and firepits for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. I wonder if we'll have any more discussions like Peter Pumpkin Eater. They had Hansel in jail getting fattened up for the witch to eat and the wolf dressed up like grandma and "sleeping" in a bed from Little Red Riding Hood among many other scary/disturbing things....those stories are really frightening when you think about it. Although the boys didn't say they were scared at the time, I can almost hear the wheels turning in their little heads with questions. It's one thing to read it in a book, but a whole different story when you see it come to life!!! Here we go!

OMG, how cute are your boys, but I just absolutely think baby Ryan in his pirate costume is to die for.
