Yes, this is Halloween. Yes, I know it's December.

Jake acts like a pirate a lot.
"I'm a pirate... arrrrrrrrrrrrrr"
So it was the natural choice for his costume.

Granna loves to come in for Halloween.

Our church has a HUGE carnival every year for Halloween. The state fair happens to be just before Halloween, so they are able to get a bunch of the rides that were at the fair. Jake was big enough to ride this year and LOVED it!

First he rode the motorcycles.

He waved at us EVERY time he went by!

When we were at the fair, Jake saw the roller coaster and kept asking to ride "the train". We didn't do it that day, but since it was free at our church, we tried it, and he also loved it.

Then it got cold, so we coated up. And he rode in the Jeeps.

They went really fast and he was having a grand old time.

Again with the waving every time.

Then he touched a sheep.

Having fun is exhausting!

A better picture of the whole get-up.
P.S. Those pretend-a-boots were from my brother's Prince Philip (Sleeping Beauty) costume, circa 1986. Thanks Mom for keeping everything!
