The Monster Mash

The next week is full of events for Halloween. We started it off with the Monster Mash at the Please Touch Museum. The kids (and parents) came dressed in costume and they could trick-or-treat through the galleries, dance in the main hall or just play with the usual exhibits.

As we walked through the parking lot, Da wanted to take a picture of our lil pumpkin. This is Norrin saying "No, Da!". He had a party to get to.

Norrin was a little dismayed to learn that the tables were filled with mostly healthy snacks, but he collected his free stuff anyway.

He loved seeing the other kids in their costumes. He would scream out what they were as we walked by. These two were "superheroes!" according to Norrin.

Another disappointing table- a coloring book on fire safety. He handed it to me.

Mother Goose tried to engage him in a little nursery rhyme fun, but Norrin was on a mission.

The carousel...Da liked this picture because it showed off his two pumpkins- Norrin and my baby bump.

A little juice break while we rode the carousel.

And this is the blur that Norrin was for the rest of the night. He danced his lil butt off. He danced with princesses and bumblebees, Clifford the Big Red Dog, DJ Disco, The Very Hungry Catapillar and Mommy :).

The whole night was a lot of fun and Norrin didn't want to leave. Little does he know he has a whole week of parties. A birthday party for a kid at school, the Halloween party at school and Halloween itself. All of these events require him to wear his costume and its amazing how popular his costume was. Parents were asking me where I got it (a garage sale in upstate NY) and kids and parents kept pointing him out as we walked around. He did look pretty cute. Although if you ask Norrin, he was a spooky pumpkin and he would give you a loud "Oogety, Boogety!" if you forgot it.
