Anyway, we decided to get P a pirate costume because he loves "Jake and the Neverland Pirates." Ok, by love I mean talks a lot about his "gold de blumes" and says "yo ho," but has really only watched it once or twice. Here is a video of P trying on his costume for the first time...seriously, he talked about finding his "gold de blumes" for at least 30 minutes after I turned the camera off.
We wanted to find something to do that would be different (and where P could wear his costume). At first we wanted to go on a history walk of the town, but we were told it might be too frightening for Parker (apparently Norwich has a gory history of hangings and what not...good to know...probably not a good alternative to Halloween). Instead we found an old steam engine railroad that takes you on a two-hour round-trip ride through the countryside between two nearby towns. I must say the train was picturesque and Parker LOVED it!! There were quite a few kids who were wearing their costumes too!
|Before we left...getting P to actually look at the camera anymore is very, very difficult!!|
|Again, I wanted a picture with him beside the steam engine, but he couldn't stop staring.|
|The steam engine...sepia seemed appropriate...:)|
|Again, this is what you get when you try to get a good picture of P with one of us...Parker had just hit Brady with his sword...hahaha, I mean, Parker no no.|
|Almost a smile!|
|At dusk...it was only 4:30. Although the moonlit ride back was pretty neat. We had a great day!|
