no tricks, just treats

on friday night, we took hendrix to the living history farms for their family halloween event.  it takes place in the evenings on the two weekends before halloween, and a couple friends told me that it was fun, so we decided to try it out. :)

he fell asleep on the way to des moines, so he was a little groggy at the beginning; but watching other little kids run around always perks this little fella up!  he wasn't real interested in "trick-or-treating" as he kept acting really shy when we got up to the people handing out candy.

but he really enjoyed seeing the sheep, and imitated them with some "baa-baa's".

he did gobble up the cheetos that were in his goodie bag, making everything orange, of course!  

this was his face when he saw the horses ;)

we went for a horse-drawn hay rack ride which was really nice. hendrix was fascinated with the horses, which  distracted him enough to stay seated for the whole ride! (unbelievable!)

then of course, he didn't want to leave the horses.....

there were lots of cute places to sit for photos, but hendrix doesn't always like to participate in these things anymore.  i didn't bring my "good" camera so that i could focus on just having fun with my family, though these  snapshots don't capture the fun in quite the same way....

lastly, we roasted marshmallows, and hendrix loved watching the fire and telling us it was hot.  he wasn't a huge fan of eating the marshmallows though, which was funny.  

there was a storytelling segment happening in the barn which looked like fun, but our man was ready to head home for bed by then, so we skipped out on that.

overall, it was a great holiday fun activity, and i would highly recommend it to other families!
