October and Halloween!

Here are a few of the things that we have been up to lately....

The Venzone Pumpkin Festival was about three weeks ago. It was awesome! We really want to go back next year. Everything in the city was decorated with pumpkins and cats. They had the best pumpkin treats. All we did that day was eat. We had pumpkin donuts, pumpkin pastries, and the best of them all was the pumpkin muffins. We liked them so much we bought four extra to bring home.

Venzone is a small medival city in northern Italy.

This medival band was good but they needed to learn a few more songs! We had to listen to the same two songs for six hours. By the end of the day I didn't want to hear bagpipes or drums ever again! It reminded me of the songs in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Actually...the entire festival reminded me of that movie!

A couple of days before Halloween I made Dustin decorate Halloween cupcakes with me. Here he is filling frosting bags. We delivered these cupcakes to our neighbors in our apartment building. The next day we saw one of our Italian neighbors and she thanked us for the muffins. It was hilarious! We just said your welcome and laughed about it when we got in the car.

Some of our cute cupcakes. Okay, not ours. These are mine :)

On Halloween we went to the Gardaland Amuzement Park. We had a lot of fun even though it was freezing and very busy. The park is located right next to Lake Garda which is about two hours away from where we live.

They had these cool machines that made ghosts out of bubbles that would fly around the park. It was awesome. Here is one ghost coming out of the machine.
And flying away...

They were so much fun to watch and I've never seen anything like this before. It took me forever to get a picture of one because they kept turning and floating away. I finally got this good picture of one in the sky.

AH HA HA HA HA. That's all I have to say....
