It was an incredibly busy day as I expect this entire week will be, but we were so excited to spend Family Home Evening at SCARY Cherry Hill!
It was pretty cold and the forecast suggested rain, but we stayed dry and a light jacket was good enough for almost everyone. We picked up Sport's friend, Kaitlyn, at 4:00 and then we drove across the valley to pick up the Cat Lover. There were 9 of us altogether. My sweetie was stuck at work, and you know Crafty, she would rather dance than breathe.
It was about 5:30 when we drove up to the nearly deserted Scary Hill. We started on the miniature golf course and it wasn't long before a couple of other families were following our lead. The course was the same as the one we enjoyed in the summer except that they had all kinds of fun Halloween decorations, all completely family appropriate.
After golf, we saw that the wagon ride had no one waiting so we climbed aboard. The lady giving out our tickets at the store told me it was best after dark, but we sure enjoyed it both times we rode. They have more than 100 skeletons dressed up as various characters; from cartoon people like Captain America to Star Wars to Pirates. My favorite was the chess players because all the little pieces on the board were also skeletons! Even after traveling the course twice, I'm not sure I actually saw everything.
Then it was time for rock climbing. Only Curly and Baby Doll were up for it this time and both of them quickly scaled the wall to the top and rang the bell. The kids loved the Aeroball game and we all enjoyed the maze except for the brief couple of minutes when Baby Doll was lost, although it wasn't really that scary because foot traffic was light and we were able to climb the stairs to the top of the maze so we could look for her easier.
Bounce houses were fun for the kids, but not so much for the adults. We played 3 games of Blasterz and enjoyed every one! There were some other things for little ones like the ball pit and bumper boats, but since Baby Doll will be 7 on Saturday, we didn't really have any little ones with us.
We climbed back into our van about 8:30, only slightly chilled, and happy for another fun family adventure.
