When two leopards, a soldier and a Nun exchange sugary treats in a dark parking lot of an elementary school, you get a bad joke and my kid's annual Trunk or Treat days before Halloween.
Costumed "farces" unite to gather and consume sweets at an alarming rate before bedtime. The high fructose race against the clock is hindered by smothering parents capturing the precious moments.
Cute and adorable leopards on the prowl. While my almost 20 month old baby distracts curious onlookers with charming fuzzy wuzzies, my clever oldest makes her move to the candy bowl. Candy corn is pushed aside for peanut butter cups in this leopard den!
Let the Holiday Season begin! Any trip to the "Dollar" and "Crafts" store for seasonal decorations is justified from October to Easter for the "boss". Nothing says themed presentations like tacky and ornate plastic goods!
A father and son sharing a defining moment with matching soldier costumes this Halloween season. "Moment" meaning my last minute scramble to Army Navy Surplus stores all over the county for proper garment sizes in digital camouflage. My son, like me, shares the same fascination with anything "military". From weapons of mass destruction to his all time favorite Call of Duty: MW3, my son is the "true" modern soldier.

Bright Lights, Brick City! The month of October marks the 1st Anniversary of LEGOLAND Florida and the family friendly Halloween festivities of Brick-or-Treat. Beautiful Fall weather this weekend contrasts with last year's rainy LEGOLAND Florida sneak preview weekend in 2011. Miniland USA is transformed into a Halloween Brick-or-Treat spooktacular. Ghostly goblins and scary LEGO creatures of the night haunt the LEGO grounds of Miniland USA. My young ones gobbled up all the free trick or treat candies of the Brick-or-Treat Trail and I clicked pictures a many of illuminated LEGO cities in Miniland USA. When it comes to sugared freebies, corporate endorsements are a blessing. Look who's big enough to ride with the family? My 19 month old baby daughter can finally join us in theme park rides. No more stroller duty for her! Look who's too cheap to buy the souvenir photo of this glorious event? My 18 megapixel Canon EOS Rebel T4i saved me at least twenty bucks! Nothing says togetherness better than social connectivity under the old Banyan Tree in Cypress Gardens at LEGOLAND Florida. The Apple iPhone is the glue that bonds long time family friends of Getawaymoments. At first glance, progress moving nowhere! Second glance, LEGOLAND Florida closes at 9pm on weekends in October. Miniland USA is illuminated like NYC's Time Square and the Las Vegas Strip but all in LEGO. Even the Tampa Bay skyline makes a night debut! Old City Hall, Tampa Theater and even the "beer" can building glimmers in the fake Hillsborough river moonlight. Miniland USA at night is quite remarkable... A year has gone by but Youtube makes video memories last forever. Just a quick montage of the rainy preview weekend at LEGOLAND Florida last year. Get a towel, you will definitely need it... Take one part baby stroller and one part GoPro Hero 2 to LEGOLAND Florida. You have yourself the ultimate mobile infant dolly to glide the crowded streets of Miniland USA. When the cinematic greats of Getawaymoments and ChadSorianoPhotoBlog converge, you also have vehicular verite at its best! Happy orange LEGO pumpkin Halloween from the Soriano family! May all your trick or treat bags be filled with less candy corn and more chocolate with a heavy emphasis on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Who could say no to this adorable baby? I see chocolate and iPhone 6 in her future. You can see more cuteness in my LEGOLAND Florida First Anniversary and Brick-orTreat Gallery 2012 shot with the Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D.
