Autumn and Halloween happenings


Earlier this month, we had a Family Day with the school, and went to a local farm. They had a pumpkin patch, a very tiny corn maze, a petting zoo that consisted of 4 goats (cute, mind you), and a pig with a sign that says, "I bite!" Heh. Very.... rustic.

But the corn was cool:
I felt an almost irresistible urge to play music from Signs

And I convinced them to pose for me on the straw bales:

The split second before another swarm of children arrived

But, of course, the best feature was the old tractor.

Of course you have to make racecar sounds on the tractor

I don't have my kids for Trick or Treating this year, so we decided to do an early activity with costumes. A couple Saturdays ago, we went to the Red Butte's Garden After Dark. We didn't get a lot of photos (it was dark, and we were busy enjoying the activities), but we took a few Costume shots:

Yvie the princess. She loves her new shoes!
Chyler as Star-Lord
Q-man as a Spartan Warrior

I haven't walked around Red Butte Garden in ages, it was fun to walk the perimeter, which was decorated with lights and spooky halloween decorations.

I'll try and get more photos of the kids in costume before they go out on Friday. Q-man has a cool spear we've been working on, and Yvie has a masquerade mask that she didn't want to wear to the garden.

How are your costumes going?
