AnnMarie Gardens

Yesterday we went to Halloween in the gardens. It was so much fun. We had some rain in the morning, and in the evening, but there was a nice window of time in the middle that was perfect fall weather! (the rain didn't stop our soccer game, we just played and watched in the wet)

Here are the kids waiting for their friends to arrive :)
They had art activities in the art studio. The kids liked drawing on the easel and making critters and getting their faces painted.

We trick or treated and got bags of loot!

They had many vendors and local businesses there, which was fun. I wanted to win dinner for two from a local restaurant owned by one of the "hell's kitchen" chefs, to win you had to guess how many candy corns were in a jar. Lucy guessed for me. Her guess was 81 billion. I don't think I'll win:)

This was the coolest thing. It made smoke bubbles and when you popped them it was dry. They kept us entertained for quite some time.

I loved seeing the garden as well. They had many interesting sculptures and nice paths.
After we tried some of Colleen's home made pumpkin ice cream! then Beloved and I went on a date and the kids stayed to play. Next time we'll have all the kids to our house and Mike and Colleen can go out!

Halloween in the gardens sounds like a lot of fun. Glad you had good weather. (81 billion, eh??? That's a whole lot of candy corn)

I e-mailed you a link for a fun jump rope video clip--hope you got it.
