Friday night was the neighborhood Halloween parade. When we arrived at the square, there were hundreds of kids, babies, dogs and parents dressed ready to spook. It took Matilda a little time to take it all in. And then we caught her yawning...several times. Thinking that she would not make it past the first turn in the parade route, we carried her for the first few blocks. Then she insisted on walking. Her walk turned into a steady march and we even started passing people. By the end of the parade, Matilda was totally in her element and ready to party! She enjoyed two gingerbread cookies and knocked back a cup of warm apple cider. A great time for sure!!!
