Took Erika to a Halloween party at her friend's house, and out for a bit of trick or treating. She bravely soldiered through the evening because she had been looking forward to it so much, but was actually a bit under the weather and not her usual bubbly self!

Had some Sugrue out in the garden in the evening.
