The Roads We Travel

A few days in a life journey.



This was our first Halloween in California. The kids had a scream! Ha! We had fun trick or treating in a friend’s neighborhood where some of the houses went all-in — graveyards on the lawn, smoke filled passages to the front door, Thriller being cranked from outdoor speakers and lots of candy for miles around.

The highlight of the night was our little ninja friend who proclaimed he couldn’t wait to see a zombie so he could,  “punch him in the face.” It sounds a little violent, but actually it was cute. He wanted to protect us all… that is until the kids were frightened by an older kid vampire, who answered the door abruptly after they had just mustered up enough nerve to walk through a maze of scary props to the front door. Then, of course, everyone came running back screaming — ninja and all!

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween.
