Only 11 days old and Rylan went out for his first Halloween night. My wife and I had no specific plans so we just went to a nearby church to see what they were having. This was the first time that we had been to the church but everyone was nice and welcoming. Unfortunately, all of the games were designed for little kids, rather than little adults. We only had the chance to walk around a bit and get some dinner. As always, the food was a bit overpriced but was good none the less. Rylan was there with us however he slept through the cold night. He has made us very proud when we go out and he barely makes a peep. It's so nice to be able to sit down for dinner and not have to worry about a crying baby.
We had purchased a lion costume for Rylan over a month ago however even though he is a long baby, he just didn't want to fit and fill into it. We were able to snag a few pictures of him in the costume sitting in his swing. Our initial idea was to take him to a professional for pictures but that idea was shot down when we noticed that even a sleeping Rylan cant sleep through being put into a costume. Next year should be a lot of fun and give us more possibilities.
For those interested in seeing what I dressed up this year, check out the image below. My work offers a free day off to the costume contest winner however I did not win nor place this year. My coworker and I had by far the most creative handmade costumes but it just wasn't enough to surpass the store bought costumes. If you cant figure my picture out, I am a office computer desk with a monitor and accessories on top.
