The folks who put on the Hallow-Eno festival at West Point on the Eno despite the wet, crappy weather deserve some major kudos. We had a great time wandering around the luminary-lit paths, and especially enjoyed seeing the Pumpkin Bridge (photo montage below) and the McCown-Mangum House (where we got married!) all decorated in spooky splendor.
Griff’s approaching bedtime and his increasing tiredness made our visit fairly short, but we had a great time stopping by to see the sights. Here’s our little leaf pile walking around/being carried around the park. We brought his little garden rake for him to carry, but once he saw the two glow sticks we brought, the rake was no longer of interest. 😉
(I would like to add that I’m really glad the rain finally stopped, or else I would have spent all that time hot-gluing fifty gazillion !#$@&$^@ leaves to a @#*&@*!# sweatsuit for nothing. Ahem.)
Awesome, so was Griffin’s costume of him as Russel?
He was a generic pile o’ leaves. 🙂 We figured it was a good fit since he loves his rake so much.
