halloween in baltimore city is a sad and scary thing. most of the neighbors don’t really participate in handing out candy, and parents travel in protective flocks of children in order to keep them safe. umm…no thanks!
we opted to take fritz out into the suburbs and let him trick-or-treat in relative safety in a neighborhood jam packed with children (lots of captain america’s this year, sup with that?). fritz’s little friend had other friends over as well, so there was a total of 4 children and 4 adults. seemingly an even playing field, but not really. chaos ensued we fed them, did homework with them, dressed them, and then did a photo shoot. fritz was yoda (of course) and shockingly loved the “hat” portion of his costume. here he is in all his cuteness.
everything went well. we didn’t really collect much candy for him because i won’t let him eat it (i know, i know, i suck the fun out of everything). but he seemed to have a good time with the other kids. he did tire quickly though, and when we brought him in we tried for a photo shoot with his friend evelyn (or the “candy corn witch”).
after that, we took yoda home. he refused to remove his “hat” for the car ride though (the kid knows how to stay in character!), but we managed to pry it off to give him a bath and put him to bed.
all-in-all, our first halloween out and about was a roaring success! how was yours?
