Witch Watch

Gardner Village is one of the cutest quaintest places I love.

It is an old mill that was changed into a restaurant.  A lot of old houses that were near destruction were transported to the same property as the mill, and then made into darling retail shops.

In October, the witches come out.  First, the fun still life kind, and then the real witches.  One weekend in October there is a great witch festival where thousands of people dress up as witches, convene at Gardner Village, and then... well, actually, I don't know what they do.  I never stay that late.  Kids.  You know.

So Friday my sister in law and I met up there with our kids and browsed.  Love those shops!  Mostly too expensive.  A hot dog was $4.5o.  Wow, hu?  Bring your own lunch if you want to go.  And here are the photos of the witches and the very sleepy children.

Every year I say I am going to go to Gardner Village near Halloween and every year I do not make it. I think it looks absolutely awesome with all the witches!

Wow, how cute and fun! $4.50 for a hot dog? Woah! I wouldn't accept that much to eat one! Heh, heh!
I just love your son's cape! While Nick and I were on our roadtrip, we played 20 questions a lot to keep us sane and having fun. One of the times I chose "cape" as the word to guess and Nick just could not figure it out! A quote from him, "So its a long rectangular piece of fabric that dangles down behind you, and you wrap it around your neck!? WHAT!?" Finally he figured it out and I was laughing forever!
