Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat in Zanesfield.

"Momo" Longshore met up with us so she could see her grandbabies trick or treat through town.

Claire was a ladybug, and Elise was a frog.

Dane running and roaring at me.

Catrina as a vampire.

Dane gives me the stink-eye.
He's mad I won't let him eat another sucker.

Hocking Valley Railroad

We left early this morning with Grandpa and Grandma Peterson to visit Logan, Ohio and ride the Hocking Valley Railway. Dane loves trains, so we knew it would be a hit!

Our train departed at noon. We took a 16mile roundtrip to Haydenville. It was a 1 1/2 hour trip with a 1/2 hour stop at Robins Crossing.

Dane starts to get sleepy towards the end.

Robin's Crossing. A small old-time town with a blacksmith and general store.

Pumpkin Carvin

We decided we'd carve up the pumpkins we'd picked from Wenger's. Here's Brad carving the top off with a dry wall saw (turns out, this works best)

Brad intently carving his pumpkin.

Brad didn't want to clean his out, he thought it was gross.
So I did it, I'm no sissy :)

Brad's handy work.

My pumpkin!

All lit up and Spooky!!!!
(or "Fooky" as Dane says!)
