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|
|Chyler trying to usurp the wheel|
|Yvie posing pretty on the big ol' tractor tire|
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.
|Star-Lord has no time to stop and enjoy the scenery|
|Red lights and spiderwebs|
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?
