Happy Halloween! Trip Report Update + Decorating Dick Van Dyke’s House!

October 31, 2011

Hope you’re having a spooktacular Halloween! In honor of the holiday, I want to highlight two features on the blog today:

Halloween at Dick Van Dyke’s House

I’m still working up a post about this year’s decorations, but you can read the story of how we started helping this Disney icon decorate his front yard for Halloween by clicking HERE, and you can see photos and videos from this year by poking around in my Twitter feed from Oct. 29-30. Enjoy!

We’re still starstruck ourselves. If you’d told me 5 years ago we’d be hanging out with my fantasy grandpa someday, I never would have believed it!

Hi guys

Fabulous blog. Did you do this years Sip and Stroll as I was there for that one. It was my first one and meeting Bob Gurr was amazing. Lots of absolutely wonderful photos and how wonderful to help decorate Dick Van Dyke’s house, loved him since I was a little girl and saw Mary Poppins, he is a true legend.
Thanks for having one of the best blogs out there.

Hey, thanks! I skipped Sip ‘n’ Stroll so I could do Magic & Merriment, but we’ve had a couple of opportunities to meet Bob Gurr over the years, and we ADORE him! He is so gracious and funny!
