Here they are with their friend, Snow White (a.k.a. Olivia) whose birthday we would celebrate a few hours later that day.
David was so excited to walk in the parade that he was actually skipping.
He shortly ditched his sister and joined Olivia.
Once in the Recreation Center, decorated for the Halloween season, they headed straight for the treats.
The kids were chasing one another like maniacs, and barely paused long enough so that the parents could take a picture of them.
A short time later, they were changed and ready to celebrate Olivia's 4th Birthday. After getting them dressed, Seth and I got ready while they preoccupied themselves with their favorite activity -- "reading."
Party time! For my kids it meant running, eating pizza and then a frozen dessert.
On Sunday, we continued celebrating Halloween by heading to the annual Cabbage Night Family Festival at the James A. McFaul Environmental Center in Wyckoff, NJ, which provided a zillion free activities for the kids. Some of the activities that the kids enjoyed weren't even part of the festival.
We went on a hay(-less) ride.
The kids participated on stage with the musicians and while Julia bolted after the first song, David actually participated for the duration of both songs.
David pushed his way into the bouncy carousel-house and I couldn't get him out.
Pumpkin painting was kind of activity they just wanted to get out of the way, so they could go on having fun again. After slopping on a few splotches of paint, they were on to the next activity!
Of course, once the car pulled into the garage at home, the kids' energy skyrocketed and sleeping wasn't in their plans. They both went biking, helped Seth in the garden and then proceeded to turn our living room upside down.
It was indeed a great weekend.
