We began Halloween day with a trip to the ocean here in Seaside. This section of beach is a little hard to find and so it's quite empty. We were able to watch a school of dolphins swimming by and several pelicans diving repeatedly into the water after some fish.
Ellie was dressed up as a little pumpkin. We tied a pink bow on her hat so people could tell she was a girl.
Here's Kate checking out Ellie before she heads out to get some candy.
Kate was very excited to dress up as Snow White. She had a lot of fun walking around the neighborhood, though she was a little shy saying "trick or treat."
Here she is looking at some pumpkins at a neighbor's house. She liked staring at the candles inside (and asking her dad to blow them out).
After taking Kate around the neighborhood, we all drove down to the base chapel for a community Halloween party. We left our pumpkin guarding our candy bowl and there was still some candy left when we can back (one of the advantages of living on base).
Here we all are at the chapel. Kate was excited to see a fire truck and get her own fire hat. It went very well with her Snow White dress.
