For not being in Hershey we still ended up with a pretty good load of candy!
Every year the students at UVA living on "the lawn" (square of old school student dorms by the Rotunda) hold a trick or treating event which attracks mobs of people. The kids have to walk all of 2 feet to the next door and simple move around in a square. They had bins of candy and when I asked one student they replied, "We were told to purchase $200 worth of candy." Lexi got the hang of it quickly as she rode in luxury from door to door in her stroller with grandma pushing her and simply holding out her hand with her pumpkin in lap. When possible she had a lolly pop in mouth, another in one hand and the other hand waiting for candy. Kylee stayed with it for a little while but was more entertained by trying to find friends, watching the entertainment, face painting and gathering balloons. We had a fun time! and are glad we pulled it off for our only year here.
We were happy to have my parents join us for the weekend and for the Halloween activities as my father anxiously awaited the Duke vs. UVA football game on Halloween Day. Skylar used his medical discount and scored some cheap tickets so the 4 of us could enjoy the event. My parents stayed true to their DUKE ties as they wore the appropriate attire and Duke pulled off the win! Sky and I snuck out at half time to get back for a little more trick or treating with the girls but there is something about being at a college football game that is just amazing...what a fun ambiance!
