Halloween in the Village

Halloween is quite the event in the Village of Arroyo Grande. The street is closed off, and hordes of trick-or-treaters descend upon the merchants who are all too willing to deposit some goodies in their bags. We showed up in force. Not just the Compound crew, oh no. Trev and Jen came with their lady bug and lion, and Jeanette and Andy came with the Star Wars family. What a hoot!

Sign Here

Amy Allen from Family Connections Christian Adoptions did the coolest thing. She held a signing ceremony for all the kids in preparation for the imminent event. Very sweet, very moving. Lynn wasn't the only one welling up. The twins were asleep; they'll have to sign at another time. Each certificate was personalized, and spot on; Amy knows them very well.

Last Day at Far Western Tavern in Guad

Pumpkins Everywhere!

There is nothing like a trip to the Nipomo Pumpkin Patch! This is our third year, and it gets better every year. Believe them when they say it takes a good-sized truck to get some of their bigger pumpkins home.
