Her friends mom invited parents to come in for appetizers when we brought the kids while waiting for the limo. As luck would have it, when we got there her power was out. She was a wonderful hostess, serving the appetizers that didn’t need to be cooked. Her home was lit with dozens of candles everywhere and there were darling Halloween decorations out. I hope I can always be as good at handling the unexpected! To top it all off, the limo was late. We stayed long enough to make sure the kids had a ride, but I think they were glad to get on their way and ditch the parents!
It stopped raining long enough to take some photos (about 100) with the backdrop of fall foliage.
