Idlewild Trip

On Saturday, Kaylin and I went to Idlewild Park's "Hallowboo" celebration. It was great! We trick-or-treated at the Storybook Forest, and rode on as many of the rides as we could stomach (literally - we both get motion-sick on rides!), and ate a ton of tasty, terrible-for-us food.
It was a wonderfully nice day - the sun was out, the temperature maybe hit 70 degrees, and there was a light breeze - just enough to make us wobble a bit on the ferris wheel. After filling ourselves with cotton candy, lemonade, dippin' dots ice cream, and Potato Patch french fries, we headed home to a delicious dinner of potato soup, homemade bread, and hubbard squash (is that how you spell it?).
The best part of the day was just hanging out with Kaylin and talking about our families and friends and just having "girl time" in a fun place. This summer, we went to a movie, and now we've been to the theme park, so next time we're planning a sleepover, complete with "Enchanted" and a living-room picnic. We're even going to invite Mara, Kaylin's (almost) four-year-old sister to stay. It's good to have girl time! I'll post pictures from the park when I have my camera handy.
