We kicked off the Halloween weekend literally....at Aiden's soccer practice. My parents usually take him on Friday mornings but I got to go because it was my one day off for fall break. It was great seeing him in action. The pictures aren't great- the best I could do through a grimy plexiglass wall. Afterwards we went to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant. I'm pretty sure Aiden ate his weight in spring rolls and pho.
After nap, Aiden finally put his costume on. He was so excited and kept saying, "it's finally time for Halloween!" Eating some leaves to get some energy for the Gymb0ree party...
Five little pumpkins fitting of the gate...

We carved Aiden's pumpkin with my parents on Thursday. He is still not sure about touching the guts.

After pictures we ran several errands (Aiden loves to shop and was a trooper) and then went to a birthday party. The party was at a park and it was a gorgeous day. Aiden ran around in his picture clothes and had a blast. He fell asleep after being in the car about 2 minutes. I was worn out too!
Tuesday was even nicer then Monday. We ran home to change clothes and then headed to the park. Aiden was anxious to go and was waiting at the door to the garage as I came downstairs. He opened the door into the garage and I shut it, not giving it a second thought. We had a great time at the park. Played on the playground and walked/rode the scooter around the park. We stayed for over an hour. It was 6:30 when we left. I knew I was pushing it with a late dinner but it was *so* nice and I knew it was probably one of the few remaining nice days we would have before winter.
You know where this is going right? We got home, I went to go inside....and the door that Aiden opened before we left? It was locked. And I had no key. And the neighbor I thought had a key didn't because we only talked about trading keys, never did it. Oops. I was so mad at myself. Aiden was panicked. He ran out of the garage screaming, "Help! Help! We've got a big problem. Someone bring us a key!" Yeah, a bit of an alarmist! Luckily my parents had a key and my dad brought it over. Aiden got to play with the neighbor kids while we waited so all was well. I will no make sure a house key is in my car and with at least 2 neighbors! Made a long day even longer. At least it was a good day overall.
