Spooky Encounters

   Our first spooky encounter of the day.  Actually...to tell the truth...she wasn't spooky at all.  I am sure that the only one scared was this girl...when I (crazed woman) flagged her down as she was about to leave & asked her for her picture.  But come on, the week of Halloween...I had to! 
   My sister Kate & I were running errunds with my kids & after just one stop on our list we couldn't believe our luck, another hearse!  This time right in front of us:
So we did what any crazed women would do, cut over into the other lane & fly by her taking pictures.  Our photography was not as smooth as we were also laughing hysterically. 
I guess the spooky encounters today...were for our victims.

   This does remind me of one of my favorite days this past summer.  We were headed to a park & at the last minute we decided to try a new one that I had discovered while my husband was out of town.   After we were there for about 5 minutes, I noticed 2 figures riding up on scooters from across the park with their hair blowing in the wind.  They never said a word.  They stayed for quite awhile, walking very slow & deliberate.  Kids were shrieking with fear & loving it!
My 2 year old Bo ran straight for us TERRIFIED!!!!!!!
My five-year-old Annie wasn't fazed one bit.  She spent the whole time on the swings watching it all.  It almost seemed like she didn't even notice.  It really was hilarious to watch the little kids running to their parents & then back onto the park to be scared again.   The bigger kids running right by them, just out of arms' reach, wanting so badly to be chased by these mysterious figures.  The kids were screaming, the parents were laughing & the 2 boys were totally silent the entire time.  It was so enjoyable that I hated to see them scooter off.
I wished that I had been that creative to on a beautiful summer night, scooter to the park & scare the heck out of the kids. Well done boys. Very spooky & well done.

Your description of the two crazy ladies taking pictures of not one, but two hearses, was right on. I only wish that everyone could have seen you running, arms waving, camera dangling by the strap, as you chased the pink hearse across the gas station. Then I am further amazed that we didn't rear end someone in our attempts to capture the other hearse. I am still laughing.

It's all about the little things in life...

The Schwan's truck to Cheri is like a Hearse to Lib.

I love your pictures! And the story about the two boys in the park. Actually, as a family you could try it some time. Or Dad could dress up and your kids could watch the fun, knowing who it really is.

I see I already was pretty funny when I commented on this last time :)
But I was going to say this time: So glad my brave eldest was not at this park. He probably wouldn't have slept for weeks. :)
