Friday night we arrived and quickly had to get the girls costumes on for campsite trick-or-treating. The girls were transformed into Minnie Mouse and a unicorn.
At one point my oldest daughter looked in her bag and yelled "I got socks"! I looked in her bag and yes there were socks alright. Somehow a pair of my socks had made it into the treat bag before setting out for our Halloween adventure. It was pretty funny. She was pretty excited about getting a new pair of socks. I think she was a bit bummed when I told her they mine, lol.
As the night went on candy was consumed and the night skies darkened. The air was cool and calm. We decided it would be a great opportunity to set off Chinese Lanterns the girls were given a few months ago.
This was our first time using Chinese Lanterns but I am sure it will not be our last. It really is amazing to see them float high in the sky until they are the size of a star. If you ever get the opportunity to buy some, do it! They are so magical. We made wishes and sent lots of love high in the sky.
Here is what they look like close up. (source)
I kind of prepared myself that this might be our last camping adventure of the season but... still banking on the possibility of one more weekend. We'll see.........
Jaxson the sun-worshiping dog was not to fond of the cooler nights. He sneakily managed to crawl into my sleeping bag in the night.
