Tonight was Halloween so we took Sydney out for a sugar high (I think Donnie was more excited than her).
We dressed Sydney as a princess and went to a children's party on campus first. Different clubs/organizations set up booths with activities like bowling, bean bag toss, basketball, mini golf, picture taking, "horse shoes," doughnuts on a string...
It was a lot of fun, even though Sydney "cheated" on almost every game. Bowling she did well on, but the bean bag toss and basketball she walked right up to the target/hoop and shoved in the bags/ball.
We only stayed long enough for her to do each activity once and then we left to go trick or treating (Donnie said we weren't getting enough candy at the party). Sydney made out like a bandit and we called it a night around 8 p.m.
When we returned home she finally let go of her "purse" (or pumpkin bag). Long enough to let us pick out a few pieces of candy. Then she dumped what was left (which was a lot) onto the floor and reveled in her bounty.
We took a few pictures on campus, but forgot the camera when we went door to door.
