Halloween 2013

I have some bloggy catch up to do, can’t skip our eventful Halloween...

The family looks forward to our favorite Halloween tradition, Frightmares at Lagoon.  Since the girls are tall enough to ride all the rides now, they love it even more, our own little Disneyland!  We hit all the rides, visit Pioneer Village for dinner, old fashion ice-cream, and enjoy the shows and spook alleys.  We went in the 1-3 spiders, while the boys braved the gory 4 & 5 spider spook alleys.  This is the first year without the older boys, sure miss them!  It’s been almost a year since my concussion, I can handle the rides much better (although the Cliff Hanger was dreadful, slowly hanging upside down was not a good idea).  At least we didn’t get wet!  A fun filled day for all!

Haunted Hallow- our city puts on a lively Halloween even each year for the community.  The kids enjoy the fire truck pumpkin drop, game booths, graveyard tours, crafts, and of course, seeing friends, it gets bigger each year. 

Nice stache Trev-

Trunk or Treating…

Our ward (church) does a cool Trunk or Treating each year.  This year with my new calling in the RS (over Enrichment), I worked close with the committee for a great evening.  Everyone had a good time with a chili/soup dinner, costume parade, and trunk or treating.  Enjoyable night, except when my yummy tortilla soup spilled in the car on the way, what a mess.  Oh well, time for a shampoo.  The rest of my soup was a hit, many compliments.

Spooky house in the neighborhood, all decked out for Halloween! (most of these pictures are from my phone)

Who’s that soccer ball?  Funny, my girls switched up their costumes this year, depending on the event.

I dressed up to volunteer at the kids school party (one more Halloween post coming), so I kept my witch on for the day.  Ne, he, hee

FUN! You know with as many times as we have been to Utah that we have never been to Lagoon.

Kelleyn,
The next time you're here in the Spring, Summer, or Fall, we should take you and your family to Lagoon. Doesn't really compare to Disneyland, but the kids seem to have just as much fun!
Thanks for your comments, so excited for your upcoming addition!
