It was like Bean was in a parade as we made our way through the mall to the picture place! She was, of course, quite noticeable in her cow costume, so people were commenting and saying how cute she was, and she was waving at them and blowing kisses to them and had to stop and smile and babble to people along the way. It was actually quite ridiculous and slightly embarrassing. She is one of the biggest hams I've ever seen! And definitely not shy in any way!
On Saturday, we didn't do much Halloween related, but my MIL and I went downtown for the farmer's market, but ended up skipping it because of the rain. We went shopping instead, checking out my favorite stores in downtown Chico - Made In Chico, Powell's Sweet Shoppe, Bird in Hand, and The Silver Sandbox! We didn't buy much, but we got some great ideas for Christmas and I did get Bean a cute bib that says "I want my Mummy!" and a ceramic wall hanging that says "Witchy Woman" for myself! I love Halloween!
Sierra Nevada Brewery - another of my local faves. I didn't drink any of their world famous beer this time - just had a fantastic pork tostada that was sooooo good! Bean wasn't liking sitting around so much after her busy morning, so we didn't stay long, but if you're ever passing through or visiting Chico, be sure to set aside a meal to visit the brewery. They offer tours as well during certain hours!
Treat Street celebration downtown. We ate for the first time at the new Burgers & Brew and had a pretty tasty meal in a relaxed, but nice atmosphere! After we ate, we took Bean around to the local merchants that were handing out candy and we all loved seeing all the fun Halloween costumes the little ones were wearing! Once again, Bean had the time of her life waving at people and seeing all the other little kids. It was great fun, if a little exhausting!
