Belated Halloween Post

This year was our second year joining the neighborhood Halloween Parade. Last year, I was surprised at how nice it really was.

There is a city police escort for the parade, which covers just a few blocks of the neighborhood and ends in a cul-de-sac with hot dogs and chips galore. Based on the location this year, it appears that it covers various areas of our neighborhood.

After the Halloween parade and picnic, it's time to go trick-or-treating.

At one of the first few houses, CJ comes running down to me laughing:
The lady who just gave me candy...she's really old. These two kids were dressed as Jesse and Woody [from Toy Story] and the old lady said 'Oh look! Two little mexicans!'

Which I had already started laughing that the old lady was so out of touch with contemporary fictional characters...but that was not it:
But those two kids *are* Mexican and their mom did not look very happy about her comment!
