Spooktacular Weekending

Happy Monday! I thoroughly enjoyed an actual real life weekend, as I've been busy with work events most of the month and have another one this coming weekend. Doesn't look like we'll make it to the pumpkin patch or the corn maze this year, but we made sure Lil' Miss wore her costume and went "trick-or-treating" at SeaWorld's Halloween Spooktacular event. In true social distancing style, her costume included a face mask, and the candy came down a shoot into her bag for zero contact. I was just so happy to see her enjoy the upcoming candy filled holiday. Her free pre-school pass this year has been priceless, and I'm glad we got annual passes as well. 

There was also a craft beer festival going on, and as passholders we were each able to print out $10 credits to use inside the park as well as a card for 3 free samples from the festival. I loved seeing so many of the local breweries available for us locals and tourists on vacation to enjoy. Supporting local even at a giant theme park! The only problem we encountered was we spun our wheels for at least an hour trying to enter the park because the bar codes for our passes in the app weren't allowing us in. We waited in 5 lines after getting the run around as to what the problem was. Turns out - since we printed up cards of our passes the last time we were there the bar code in the app no longer works. Say WHAT?! We were frustrated to say the least, and Lil' Miss kept asking why we weren't inside trick-or-treating or on rides yet. She was a total trooper, and didn't fuss at all through all the inconvenience. VERY thankful she napped before we left the house, and I didn't even hesitate when she asked for the unicorn cheesecake ice cream cone on our way out. YES baby of course! 

That margarita was necessary after the whole ordeal as annual passholders trying to enter the park. I cashed in my $10 coupon immediately on the drink while H hit up one of the craft beer festival stations for free samples, we got brisket loaded waffle fries (YUM), and Lil' Miss picked out her trick-or-treat bag. She chose Frankenstein! It simply said "Frankly I'm cute" - TRUTH.

*This was from my favorite local brewery Crooked Can - if you're a Central Florida local or here on vacation I highly recommend taking a break from the theme parks and International Drive area and heading to Downtown Winter Garden. Lots of great restaurants, shops, outdoor events, and the Plant Street Market where you'll find this brewery.

What is Halloween going to look like for you this year? Is your neighborhood passing out candy? Are you skipping it this year?
