I got the day off school and mom and dad took me to Chicago! I went to a lot of great places to eat and my two favorites were the Hubbard Inn and Pinstripes...
I saw Amish kids going to school. It reminded me that I'd have to go back to school on Monday! A bunch of the kids were playing baseball... I saw 3 different schools and the kids were playing baseball at each one. The kids were wearing clothes that looked like uniforms but my parents told me those are the clothes they wear all the time.
I went on a hayride that was supposed to be "magical" where you plant "magical pumpkin seeds" and use "magical water". After planting we went on a little hayride... when we returned "magically" pumpkins appeared. I caught on to what was really going on, because pumpkin seed was still there... it was a dead give away!
Probably one of the most interesting parts of this trip was me carving a pumpkin by myself! It was really fun to make my pumpkin look however I wanted.
Before I went trick or treating my mom made me go in the parade with Yogi Bear. It was kind of embarrassing when my mom kept walking next to the parade and saying "Daniel I'm right over here"! I almost jumped the line!
When I went trick or treating I got a full bucket of candy! Probably the best I got were Twix and Kit Kat. I know my mom is just waiting for her chance to swipe some... I wish I had a safe!!!
In Amish Country we didn't go out a lot... but one of the interesting things I had was lots of candy! The candy was really good. I got Sweet Tarts, Heath, Twix, Kit Kat, Tootsie Pop, Reese's, Whoppers, Almond Joys... stuff like that. If I was going to say the whole list it would probably be 10 feet long!...
