The kids love the fun in the sun, but have lamented to me that it's "sad" to miss Halloween. I remind them that they don't exactly suffer from a sugar ban the rest of the year. Also? The resort has a big Halloween bash. Lastly? They had a Halloween bash with Grandma Karen and Grandpa Tim before we headed out. By all reports it was a big success, with game prizes like glow in the dark meat cleavers. And, of course, lots of candy!
P.S. - yes, yes. We have a 5th child. He stayed home and worked on packing with Mommy. Poor Evan!
