Halloween weekend entailed more costume changes than a Bollywood wedding.

That Friday I was in a training and Z was off because it was professional development day for the teachers, so MoBob took him to see the Big Bird movie at the Air and Space museum, followed by a ride on the Smithsonian Carousel and yet another Moroccan Festival on the Mall.
We went to Boo-spectatular for the first time. It was worth the drive - Z's favorite activity was shooting down aliens.
While MB took Z to French class and then a good-bye party for a little friend, I met up with another friend whom I hadn't seen since we'd returned from Australia in 1991.
Then off to the Halloween party at the library.
Followed by our neighbors' annual Halloween bash. I left the party early to see an excellent student production of "Little Women: the Musical" with another friend.
On Sunday we went to see "Drumming with Dishes" which was absolutely charming - it was a re-mount of Arts on the Horizon's first production and we'd never seen it before. Then off to see a Lithuanian group perform as part of the Kids Euro Festival.
Then we went for brunch at the local pancake house and came across an unexpected celebrity.
At the Anacostia River Education Center's River Monsters event we enjoyed learning about local turtles from a giant cockroach.
I'm really glad we live in a complex where kids can trick or treat in a well-lit, contained area. This year I handled the kids activity table.
