Last weekend we met up with our dear friends, The Bell Family at the zoo for some Fall/Halloween fun! We have taken Ellison to this event every year since her first Halloween. This will be her 4th year and Elic's 2nd year going. The kids got to dress up in their Halloween costumes for the first time this season. We have a pirate and "Bumblebee Girl"!
He is such a tough and mean pirate ;)
Bumblebee Girl and Pirate Elic!
I was going to make both of their costumes but found quite a deal on Ellison's at Target. I made Elic's which was pretty simple...you can't see all of his but it turned out cute and the main thing is that it is comfortable!
These two L-O-V-E each other! I seriously have not seen 2 girls this age get along so well...
Spooky carousel ride :)
I am stumped...Elic's first carousel ride was in Disneyland over the summer when we were in California. He absolutely loved it and did not want to get off. For some reason he is terrified of the carousel at the zoo. He wants to get on it but completely freaks out when I try to put him on an animal! He is fine if I get on the animal with him though...
Daddy and his babes :)
Our first Fall/Halloween Family Photo!
Hadley and Ellison
Elic and his sissy
So we wanted a group photo and this lady was kind enough to offer to take a picture however this was the result of picture #1...HA! The dads did not quite make it in with squirming toddlers but Mary Ellen and I thought it was cute of us and the older girls :)
Attempt #2...a little better but almost lost Connor and Elic is in his own little world :) Sweet Baby Maitland is tucked away in her mama's jacket :)
Waiting in line for the Spooky Lab
These two crack me up...they are like a little old married couple. They follow each other around and Ellen Kate will feed Elic her snacks. It is hilarious! They are barely 3 weeks apart in age!
Bubby loves his treats!
Visiting the grumpy old troll!
The dads with the toddlers...
This was Connor's last picture taken at the age of 31 :) It is a keeper!
