Halloween Parties and Magical Times!

Thursday I started the day with a 10 mile run before everyone else was awake.  I was able to do 10 miles in 78 minutes and kept the pace steady for an average of 7:47 per mile.  We have a Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party tonight and tomorrow night so we kept it low key all day and let the boys hang by the pool.
Love this weather!
We relaxed while the boys had a blast then it was time to get ready for the party!  My hubby and boys came up with our costumes:
Team Sparkle Skirt!!

I picked up this Team Sparkle skirt from the Disneyland Expo and absolutely love it.  They offer so many sparkle skirts and in all different colors.  It's a fun way to sparkle while you race! We got so many compliments on  our costumes and even asked to have our pictures taken multiple times!  Too much fun!  The Halloween party was so much fun and we were able to walk right on to many rides and the kids scored BIG time with the Halloween candy on the trick or treat trails!  We probably have at least 50 lbs of good good candy!   Both boys made it right up until the end when they both fell asleep.  Obviously they are too big for strollers so I got to carry 42 lb little guy and my hubby got to carry 80 lb bigger guy!  Wow, that was a workout walking back to the hotel.

We all slept in and took the morning easy.  The boys both have appointments at the Pirates League for pirate makeovers so we hung out in Magic Kingdom until it was time for their appt.  We just so happen to run into Wanya Morris from Boyz II Men!!
We had passed him yesterday in one of the parks but didn't say anything so today when we saw him I had to say something...Nicole this one is for you!  Super friendly and more then willing to take a picture.  He loved the fact that Cameron thinks they are "the Beach Boys"!  HA!

Here are the after pictures of my scary Ghost Pirates:

The boys loved every second of the Pirates League experience...They really go all out here and make the boys look awesome.  And if the mess up their make up they will touch up all day long!  Cameron had a little too much fun eating dinner and totally ate off his lip makeup.  We went back right before the party and they re-did his whole face!! 

We have so many great memories for the past few days here and cannot wait to make some more!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Happy Running!
