Ruined Plans

I love how one glance at a pic and you return to the time and the place it was taken. Our pictures have so many great stories that go with them. I will be trying to share a pic and it’s story each week as part of Throwback Thursday. My hope is that this can be a fun time and give us some good laughs.

Meet our oldest son. He is 11 now, but in this pic he was just a few months old. It was Halloween, but we weren’t going to be out trick or treating. We were starting a short road trip to visit some friends for the weekend.

1st Halloween Costume

We had this super cute costume that a friend had given us and it HAD to be worn! It was impractical and hard to get on him but we forced it around his squishy little body because it was adorable. We thought, ” He will be so cute when he meets our friends for the first time,”

After driving for two hours we stopped at a Dairy Queen to have a little snack-breast milk and ice cream. We took our son out of his car seat and we saw a huge brown spot soaking through the bright blue fabric of his tiny costume.

There was no saving the costume. It was stinky and nasty. My perfect plan had been ruined and the Halloween costume rode the rest of the way in a plastic bag.
