Saturday we headed out on a road trip to San Antonio to visit Sea World for their Howl-O-Scream event. We were so excited to see the haunted attractions!
Along the road trip we drove the back way avoiding all the recent construction on the highways and massive traffic. The route we took was much more scenic which was nice. We drove through several small towns.
Along the road in the middle of no where we saw this small circus tent. T said it reminded her of those horror movies and even though I laughed I must admit it was creepy. Very random…
For miles we saw a lot of black smoke. It’s been so dry here in Texas that local cities are on water restrictions and we’re under a burn ban. We figured it was another field fire which would have been awful. Instead we see someone burning brush. You could feel the heat inside the car.
We arrived to San Antonio around 4:00 PM and checked into our hotel. We headed over to Sea World by 5. That gave us a full six hours of fun before they closed.
We were so impressed with how much the park changed from Summer to Fall. The Halloween decorations were elaborate. There were pumpkins at every corner and displays around the whole park that were made perfect for photo opps.
Starting right at 6:00 PM, the bewitching hour, the ghoulish characters came out to play. Their costumes were so creepy and very detailed. I quickly grabbed some photos before it got dark. The Creative Costumes were amazing to see.
The girly screams started right at 6 and could be heard through the whole park. It was entertaining.
As the sun went down the park got even creepier. We purchased the fast passes to skip the lines of all three haunted houses because the park was extremely crowded and we wanted to make sure we also got to see all the shows. The fast passes were $10 each. Well worth it…
We had such a great time! The shows were magnificent and the haunted attractions were awesome. I usually don’t get scared in haunted houses but I have to admit this time I actually did get startled in several places. I was beyond impressed at the whole setup. The park was very eery at night.
We drove home from San Antonio on Sunday, picked up the little kids and then decided to decorate our home for Halloween. We had gotten the Halloween decorations out last week and were waiting for a free afternoon. Sunday was perfect since we were in the Halloween spirit.
The kids helped me put our old Halloween decorations from a past Halloween party to good use. Our kitchen has a bay window that we were able to decorate.
Yes, we have a graveyard in our kitchen that includes a black skeleton covered in glitter hanging from the window seal with tombstones, black spiderwebs and even the words Happy Halloween made to look like blood on the window.
The kids and I love it.
Do you decorate for Halloween?
