Halloween - My Sunday Photo

As a child I didn't really celebrate Halloween. I don't remember going trick or treating or dressing up. Now there doesn't seem to be any getting away from it and having a daughter who loves to wear glitter and sparkly dresses it's an opportunity where she can be dressed up out of the house without getting those looks from other parents. You know the look, the look that says "yes, I understand, you let your child wear anything out of the house because it was easier than trying to get her in sensible clothes. My child once went to the dentist as spiderman".

This week we went to Audley End Miniature Railway in Saffron Waldon for their Halloween special because it's half term and seemed like a good thing to do with friends. We had a great time. As well as the train ride which had a spooky make over with bats, ghosts and dancing witches offering treats there was a dance tent, craft tent and the normal bouncy castle and play area. We had great weather and a brilliant time.

I took a lot of pictures and the one I have chosen for this post is hugely over exposed and is when we were coming out of a tunnel. I love it and think it adds to the spooky feel of the train ride. You can see M's face and her waving a magic wand and feel the movement of the train.
