I smell spookiness in the air, pt 1
#1 son wanted to visit a haunted house, I said I'd make it happen. so we went to the house of torment. he assured me he could not be frightened.
this ghoul snuck up behind him in line, he never saw it coming!
he didn't jump squeal or cry. he said "hello mr monster"
the haunted house tour was about 30 minutes long. the obvious creatures jumping out of the darkness and gory scenes. the only time he seemed remotely scared was when I picked him up to use as a human shield against a spooky monster that attacked us from behind.
we attended the yelp "open party". as usual, lots of swag (free promotional stuff) a big food buffet, free Lonestar and free eristoff vodka drinks
there was a burlesque crew between the 80's music and the evening peaked when they played "thriller" complete with dancers.
lots of dancing and moving around going on.
and our favorite way to close an evening of downtown fun, chi'lantro korean chicken burrito with extra spicy kimchi and runny egg.
mom and I took the two boys down for a little work at our blanco river place down in wimberley. #2 son wanted to help.
I flipped the door handle and lock so we can now lock the place up from the inside. I reworked the frame with some scrap wood so it now closes securely. I had found the door standing open when I arrived.
mom stuck to our intended task, applying some white primer paint.
but the real treat for making the trip down is.... the blanco river itself. we took the dogs down so they can have a look at their future playground.
and we had yet another eanes elementary fall fiesta/carnival:
this was our seventh year attending this event, and I have seven more in my future. HALF WAY!
I volunteered to work a booth this year. it wasn't bad.
#2 son acted as photo assistant while I set up the lighting for some halloween-ish photos
#2 son is growing up to be a decent person, the terrible twos are starting to fade, yet persistent.
