The Weekend Ahead

I hope the weather where you are is as beautiful as it is here. It is gorgeous today. The temperature is perfect, it's sunny, and the leaves are changing colors. Oh, I just love this time of year.

This weekend we will once again be helping out the Boy Scouts at Cane Creek. Every year the state park in our area has a Ghost Roast. The park is decorated for halloween, all the campsites are occupied with campers that have decorated their campsites and they give out candy to the thousands of children that come for that night. It costs them a fortune in candy, but they love it. It's a safe place to take your kids trick or treating.

They also have hayrides, games and the Boy Scouts have a haunted house. Now, the Beavers family doesn't do Halloween so much. If we can't make a costume with what we have at home then we don't dress up. And my kids have always dressed up. We aren't in to all the scarey and gore that comes with halloween. Samuel helps with parking (the thousands of people have to park somewhere) and Daniel, David, Anna, and I sell hot dogs and hot chocolate in front of the haunted house. (It's all a fundraiser for the Boy Scouts.)

If you are anywhere near here come out and have some fun. The kids love it, and the adults do too.

And by the way, last night Samuel was awarded his Star rank in Boy Scouts. Just two ranks away from Eagle!
