Okay, 79 degrees is sort of a kick ass trick or treating temperature.
Well, except for Summer who had on a long sleeve gymnastics Gabby Douglas outfit going on.
Dylan dressed as a “I wanted to be Mac from “Teen Beach Movie” but it’s sold out so I’ll be a witch.”
Chase was a “I want to be fireman, no make that a lion. I mean, Buzz Lightyear. Wait, definitely Spiderman.” Recap: The Spiderman costume arrived just in time. He dressed up as a cowboy.
Harlowe was a “I definitely want to be Strawberry Shortcake. I can’t wait to be Strawberry Shortcake. I am so excited to be Strawberry Shortcake. I love my Strawberry Shortcake costume.” Recap: She was a ballerina.
Cash was Superman because he’s a baby and I can dress him however I want.
Rick dressed as a newscaster and went to work.
I thought the whole evening was going to be a bust when we walked out outside and this guy immediately made both twins start crying…
I don’t know what they were so upset about. He looks super nice. We finally lost him and trick or treated for about a thousand million hours. Since it’s so warm and balmy out, the kids never say, “I’m freezing. I want to go home.”
They really need drink stations on Florida trick or treating routes. Just a quick stop to get some water, a few orange slices and maybe a chilled Pinot Grigio.
We finally headed home with buckets and buckets of candy. My only disappointment of the night was not seeing one trick or treater in a Boston Red Sox uniform with a long mangy beard.
