Overdue: Trip to visit Darnin'!

Gage & I took a little road trip to visit Darnin' the weekend before Halloween.

Clearly the sun was in Gage's eyes, so he had to borrow my shades...


And with that, we were on the road!
Ahhhhh the joys of a backseat-radio-commando, and the 8 million Are-We-There-Yets, not to be surpassed by the How-Much-Longers????
Good times.

Glad to report: we arrived safely.
And in fact, we were in time for dining out!
We went to:





And when we got home, Darnin showed us "the broom trick."

Just in time for Halloween...and of course Gage asked Darnin', "Are you gonna fly on that thing?"

Allen broke his arm. Well, not that night...he broke it before, so he's got a cast on. And---we got to sign it! How cool!? {well, we had fun with it!}


And he helped Gage build a huuuuuuuge pile of pillows for a soft landing spot...

It didn't take long on Sunday morning for Gage to REQUIRE his SpiderMan costume.


Gage got a special Halloween goodie bag with some Halloween books, and some Halloween Peeps {gag a maggot!}.


And then it was Halloween craft time! Darnin is so creative & fun. She found some cute Owl on a stick Halloween treats made out of Moon Pies. {Hey Darnin', where's the RC Cola? Come on! A Moon Pie & no RC Cola? You're doing it wrong...}
Anyway....Gage & Allen had a blast decorating these. Only...2 or 3 looked like owls because the boys got a bit more creative with their decorations.


The final creations:


After that, we decided to go for a "hike" in the woods...Check out Darnin's hiking boots...Yeah, she's a rockstar like that.


Pics from our hike...




It was a good time, and when we got home---Daddy tucked Gage in, and read him one of his new Halloween stories...

Isn't the broom trick neat? And you made me laugh so hard with "gag a maggot!" Too funny. And I'm going to try those moon pies . . . but I have to pick up RC cola first ;)
