This weekend we took the kids to the Halloween event at the Springs Preserve. It was fun to get out with the kids dressed up, but I really don't think I'm going to any more special events there. It's always too crowded for what it is. I don't like "line rides" (you know, where the line ends up being the main event LOL) with a 15mo old and 4.5yo. We spent the better part of 2.5 hours in lines for what summed up to be a handful of candy. The activity stations and haunted house all had long lines and the little concert they put on was also extremely crowded. Top it off with Emberly's refusal to get close to anything remotely scary, just for a picture, and I conclude that the evening would have been better (and more thriftily) spent carving pumpkins at home. At least a I got a couple cute pictures.
