Robinsons. It rained a little, and we didn't see the sun all day, but the weather was really warm. It was the most fun we've had since we got to Taiwan, and the kids slept great that night! Too bad the Robinson's will never invite us again after Ashton threw up in their car on the way home (sorry guys!)
On the way home, we stopped at a Texas Bar-B-Q restaurant. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the sign. I thought it's too good to be true! We went in and met the owner, who is a genuine Texican; hat, boots, wranglers, the whole 9 yards. I thought for sure we had hit the jackpot. Then we tried the food. I should have known there's no way Chinese people would ever eat real Texas Barbecue! If you want to try it, all you have to do is mix a bucket of chili powder with a small serving of pork and slap it on a bun.

We had a busy night; first we trick-or-treated in our apartment complex, then we went to a ward Halloween party, then we came back and went to a party at our neighbors house. Whew! Since Taiwan doesn't celebrate Halloween, everyone kinda stared at us walking down the street in our costumes. It was a regular 'Grimley family parade' with everyone honking and yelling, and we even had some people take our picture. I think some of them actually thought Nate was the pope. He walked around with his arms up 'blessing' people all night. I know some of the non-members that came to the ward party thought Nate was our church leader. (Yes, we know he is going to HE*@!)
Our traditional Halloween night dinner...meal in a pumpkin, mmmm...
