Treat Street

Treat Street 2010

Last year we hit Treat Street a little bit later, and we walked.  This year, we got there fairly early, and we drove (now I can't even remember why).  Both years, we had lots of fun, but I'm pretty sure that there were three times as many people this year!  It was a mob!

There were lots of smiles...

...and lots of friends.

VPA kids

We went with our friends the Andersons, and met up with some other friends, too.  Between the 6 parents, 5 of us work for the university in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts.  So these are the VPA kids, and they get along swimmingly.

Sophia loved getting her bag filled with all manner of candy.

And Chloe loved eating it.


Bria enjoyed staring people down and threatening to suck their blood.


I did not dress up, but I did take a lot of photos.

I was there too

The Maestro did not dress up either, but he was our fearless leader as we traversed the city street.

Daddy's Girls

At the end, we all got pretty tired and sat down at every available opportunity.

We actually got home before dark this year, and all in all, I'd say Treat Street was a smashing success!

Can't wait until next year!

(Actually, yes, I can.)

  1. New follower here. Great pics of the kids, they look great!

  2. Looks like fun! I love your new banner and font!

  4. I wish I had access to a never ending treat street.

  5. I love your header; it looks so great with all three girls next to each other. Happy Halloween.

  6. What a great tradition! And I'm dying over the face of the girl in the jellyfish in every single picture! So great!

  7. I have to say, I adore your coat! And also, you take fabulous pictures, but I'm sure you know that already. :)

  8. What a fun thing for you! I love the photos against the brick wall. That is awesome.

  9. Is that blue child a jellyfish? A mushroom? Whatever she is, it's a beautifully elaborate costume!

    Treat street sounds awesome. (And in response to your comment over at my place, yes, you may eat everything out of your cauldron. You just can't mail any of it to me.)

  10. Love that stare down! She's got it down pat!

  11. Looks like lots of fun, and great costumes!

  12. THE costume turned out great! Your pictures are gorgeous.
