Saturday was a good one. We celebrated Halloween a week early by taking our little sushi out to two festivals in the city. She “walked” the catwalk for her first Halloween costume contest at the East Passyunk Spooky Saturday Festival and witnessed some cool acrobatics at the Headhouse Square Pumpkin Fall Festival near South Street. We ran into a bunch of Isla’s buddies from music class, who were all dressed up and looking adorable, and enjoyed a visit with her best buddy, Carmen, too. Then we topped things off with dinner out just the three of us. It was a wonderful day. Oh, and Isla looked stinking cute in her sushi costume, which I made all by myself! It’s nothing fancy, obviously, but as someone who does not sew, I’m quite proud. I’ll share the how-to tomorrow. If you’ve procrastinated and are looking for a quick, last-minute costume, it’s really, really easy.Kids using typewriters. Now that’s something you don’t see every day!
