Good morning! Sorry this post is so late. I got home from St. Louis at 6:30 last night then the Saints played at 7:30, so I was slightly preoccupied. Then, I allowed myself to sleep in and slept 10 hours!
More about the expo and the race tomorrow, but I will say the race was fun, very pretty course, and I didn’t do too bad. I didn’t PR, but was SO close, which is amazing considering 3 days of expo legs and all the hills on the course! This girl grew up below sea level so I don’t train on hills! Plus, my IT band which did SO WELL during the Gulf Coast half, flared up due to the hills and hurt me pretty badly the last 5 miles. BUT, more on all that later.
I wanted to get these pictures from Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party up in case anyone is going this week, so they can see them!
With Jen being pregnant, clearly the most logical (and cheap) thing for us to do was go as Dr.’s trying to get pregnant lady to delivery! She really did need the wheelchair too, no way the poor thing would have been able to walk around all night!
It was funny to watch Jen get wheeled around quickly and around sharp turns. I don’t think she was a fan.
Luckily, we all love candy so had no qualms about all the trick-or-treating!
We rode pirates, and the boys rode splash while Jen and I trick-or-treated some some. The, it was time to head to Hallowishes. I love this fireworks show. I may or may not know all the words…
We got more candy, and soon it was time for the parade. Bobby and I shared a soft pretzel while we waited for it to start. The headless horsesman soon arrived and the parade began.
These guys are my favorite. They twirls their shovels and the ground and sparks fly!
After the parade, we got more candy, and the boys rode space mountain. Our friends left after that, and Bobby and I did some more trick-or treating and walking around. Before we knew it, it was midnight and time to leave.
We sleepily made it back to the Grand Floridian, and dumped out all our candy, just like when we were kids.
The next morning we sadly checked out of the hotel and made our way home, very sad it was over. It was such a great trip and it will be so hard to top!
Also, if you would like to see pictures from the Halloween party from last year (I took more) check out this post.
QOTD: Did you trick-or-treat as a kid? What was your favorite costume that you wore?
SO FUNNY!! Ryan just sent me an email at work that said “Good Lord, did you see how much Halloween candy Heather got at MNSSHP?!?!” So i had to come check it out. When we went to MNSSHP we did bring a bigger bag (as you suggested to us at the expo) but we just used the ones Disney gave us. That night as we were leaving Ryan said, “Gee, Heather must get an insane amount of candy if the Disney bags were breaking on her.” oh my gosh! That is a crazy pile!! How did you get all that?? I’m so impressed!!
I LOVED MNSSHP! We weren’t sure if we wanted to go or not so we looked through your album on fb and that helped us decide we definitely wanted to go. So thanks for all the tips!!
bahaha! yes we do love candy!
I am so glad yall decided to go and liked it!
we hit the trick or treat spots many many times!
Looks like you guys had fun! We went to Mickey’s Halloween Party here at Disneyland for the first time last week! It was so much fun! We got a ton of candy, too. We didn’t get to see the parade, but we did get to see the fireworks, which was awesome. It is probably different than the one at WDW. I thought the music was great! K was the cutest Mickey ever, too! Next year, we will go earlier and try to get some halloween pics with characters. The lines were just too long this time.
Such a fun night! I wish we could go again 🙂
Wow, you guys got a ton of candy! Looks like it was a lot of fun!
