Storybook Forest

We ventured up to Arcadia to the Storybook Forest we had been hearing so much about. It had originally started as a grand plan of going with all of our favorite friends, but life happened and we went just the 3 of us and had a great time. Luckily we had been prepared for the hour long wait in the car just to get in (and we got there fairly early) and then the long lines to get into the forest.
"Hey Olive, are you ready to go to the forest? They might give you treats!"

"Treats! Let's go!"
I have had my camera for almost a year and have never taken the time to learn how to use it. Knowing that it was getting dark, I assumed the "night portrait" setting would be my best bet, apparently that wasn't a good choice and the majority of pics are blurry until I set it to "auto" and they became perfectly clear. Oh well, I will know for trick or treat!
Olive was so excited about running around and jumping while we waited in line, that she became "hot" and took her jacket off. It stayed off the rest of the night. Please do not turn us in, we were not being negligent, she wouldn't put it on. She kept saying "no, I hot." Stephen and I were cold, hence the heavy coat and layers.

The Little Old Lady Who Lived In A Shoe!
"Who is next?"
The Itsy Bitsy Spider!Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater!
"Who else?"
The Three Little Pigs! She wanted to go in that door so badly, she couldn't figure out why it wouldn't open.

When we were finished seeing all of the characters, we went to play some fun games. And to see Clifford! She was so excited to see him, but not so excited to be so close to him. Waiting in line for the hayride, keeping herself warm by jumping off of hay bales. Snuggling with Daddy before the hayride! We had a great time and can't wait to go back next year!
