The whole thing was pretty much my cup of tea. I love being outside, slightly chilly, and sitting around a campfire. The storybook stuff and hayride were really fun too. We all had a blast.

Humpty Dumpty (kind of creepy, I know)
The big boys trying to pull the sword out of the stone.

I think they liked them.The event was advertised as a "non-scary" event for children under 10. However, there were a series of scenes from Hansel and Gretel that ended with an oven that had a witch's legs hanging out. Eli recently burned his finger on our stove (I know, I felt terrible), so he's obsessed with not being near hot things lately. He was a little freaked out by the witch in the oven. It was at the very beginning of the trail, and he talked about it the rest of the night and half the way home until he fell asleep. "Why was that witch in the oven? Is that witch still in the oven?" I was afraid he was traumatized, but he didn't mention it today, so maybe we're in the clear.
Otherwise, it was a great evening, and I'm sure it will turn into an annual event for our family.
