Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

We had another really busy weekend (hence the lack of posts). After looking at my calendar I noticed we will be busy pretty much every weekend until New Years.

Saturday we met up with our friends Bob and Vanessa at Food and Wine. Yes, if you are keeping track that is our third weekend, in a row, at Food and Wine. We had a blast, naturally. I would like to say though that having a glass of champagne, then a beer, then a glass of sparkling wine is not the ideal combination. Just sayin'. I would also like to mention that even though it is Fall, sunscreen is required. I'm rocking a scorching sunburn, just in time to visit the dermatologists office. Score one for me!

Sunday was our busiest day, we met up with Bob and Vanessa in the morning for the kids to go swimming. Scott and I sat that one out thanks to our sunburn and need for shade. The kiddos had a blast with their Uncle Bob and Aunt "Essa" as Jill calls her.

That night we went with Mimi and Paw Paw to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. I LOVE this party! This year for Halloween the kiddos are a train engineer and Alice:


Now, I might be biased but, aren't they the cutest kids ever?! By the way, the headband was gone within minutes of this photo. I was just happy it lasted as long as it did.

I also love this party because it is prime people watching. Some people go all out for Halloween and I love to check out the costumes. Some, well, wear their PJ's, like the girl behind us in this photo:


Now, if you ever get the chance to go to a Mickey's Not So Scary, you have to go to the parade. It is hands down the coolest parade put on by Disney. My favorite part is the headless horseman. The horse is just gorgeous, and it is just an amazing site to see. Way back in the day he used to charge down the street and sparks would fly from his hooves, but because people are well....people...safety became a concern and now he just trots, no sparks.

Jill wasn't a huge fan of certain parts in the parade, which I expected, but for the most part they did really well.

After the parade we went to visit our friend Jane and her friends Tarzan and Turk. Jill looked shocked when Jane said "Oh hello Jillian!".

We then headed over to visit the dwarfs and see our friend Happy. Jill was not too sure about the dwarfs, but Happy cheered her up and we were able to get a somewhat decent photo. Kinda sorta maybe.

Our final stop of the night was the carousel. The kids have always loved this ride. Before we got on though, Scott stopped and got me a crown, because as you know every princess deserves a crown. Both of the kids looked at me like I was a whack job though.

Now, onto the part of the evening that made me want to pretend like I didn't know the group I was with. Paw Paw and Mimi were both in motorized wheelchairs, aka ECV's. Mimi is a pro and can navigate through the thickest of crowds. Paw Paw...well...can't. So we were leaving the park and things were a little crazy because the second parade was getting ready to start. There are only so many ramps off of the sidewalks and we were all heading for one of the ramps. Well, all except Evel Knievel Paw Paw, he decided to hit the gas and jump the curb. LITERALLY! All I heard was Scott yell "Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!" then we both yelled "DAD!", which was mistake #1 for me if I was trying to pretend like I wasn't with them. We all had to stop and laugh for a minute because it was just that funny. Thankfully he and the ECV were not harmed during the stunt.

The whole night was a blast though! I hope you had a great weekend too!
