Halloween, Harleys, and Happy Apples

I was leaving church this morning I noticed a print out posted on the wall. It was informing me that a local dentist office is offering a coupon of $1 per pound for turning in your Halloween candy instead of eating it. Bummer. I wore the soles off a pair of shoes last night walking Macy around to get candy and now they're telling me I should convince her to sell it to a dentist so I can save a few bucks on my next visit. Here's my theory: 1. Letting your kids eat a plastic jack-o-lantern full of candy in one sitting is a bad thing. 2. Teaching kids to brush there teeth is a good thing. My girl already seems like she's growing up too fast.....she's keeping the candy!

We took our fall family and kids Christmas picks today at Watkins Mill State Park. Trying to get a 5 month old to look at the camera and smile on cue can be challenging to say the least. We did have beautiful weather and some great backgrounds and I'm sure you'll see the finished results posted here within the next month.

Speaking of beautiful weather...I got the two wheeled suicide machine out for a quick zip down the interstate. It made me wish for springs already , and I'm a winter guy. There's something therapeutic about a bike.....a shrink with loud exhaust.

And....I'm ending my day, and Halloween weekend, with a Happy Apple. I hadn't had one in years and can honestly say I'd eat a lot more fruit if it was all coated in caramel and nuts.

$1 per POUND? Sooo not worth it... and how are we sure that it's not just a way for the dentist to get candy for him/herself?

I call shenanigans!

I have to say I'd keep the candy too. Once it's in your possession, it's so hard to consider selling! Can't wait to see the new fall pics!
