When the kids are inspired! Last summer we went to Universal Studios and the kids were bit by the Harry Potter bug!  Of course after binging all the movies before we drove to FL, and exploring the Wizarding World of Harry Potter...  These two NEEDED to be Harry Potter & Hermione Granger for Halloween.  Which is PERFECT because Andy is slightly obsessed with all things Harry Potter!
