Ain't no chickens here

we went to this haunted house tonight, it is called Fright At The Fort. Its an old cement fort near here that used to guard the riverbank. One of the main sponsors is Stephen King and his radio station, if that tells you just how scary it is.

I was adamantly opposed to taking Ciarra, thought for sure she couldnt handle it. My best friends 10 yr old was too scared to go, if that tells you anything. This place is creepy in the daytime, nevermind full of ghouls and goblins at NIGHT.

As usual, she WANTED to go. Told me she would protect me and wouldnt be scared.

The first thing, a guy comes charging through the line with a chainsaw, it was kinda scary...she backed up and sorta flinched, but then leaned over and laughed in his face...

Then we saw this cowboy looking guy, he was outside, while we waited in line. She was teasing him, calling him "Hey cowgirl!" and he called her over. He lassooed her and then let her lasso him and fire his gun. She LOVED it, and she actually lassooed him pretty well! Wendy took a picture...and, well....creepy. The guy looks completely see through.

Ghouls, goblins, witches and ghosts...nothing scared her. She screamed BOO at the few who rattled her a bit. She actually jumped one of them when she screamed once, which was incredibly funny to see.

The kid is brave, no doubt about it.
