For years, we have known about the West Jordan Pumpkin Walk but, have had other things going on. However, this year, I made it a priority and got the kiddos up and dressed and we headed out. I was so pleased with myself that I had the boys in matching outfits and Kyra was decked out in her witch dress. Then, when we got there, many of the kiddos were dressed in costumes. Kyra was a little disappointed until I reminded her that her costume has yet to be completed. Oh well. You win some, you lose some.
The pumpkin walk was amazing and the kids had so much fun. Plus…here is the good part…it was completely free! I am putting myself on a huge budget overhaul and free always fits nicely into that overhaul plan.
Each child got a balloon hat, animal or sword. I just LOVE Kelty’s choice don’t you? Kaeson was thrilled with his sword. Kyra chose to have a teddy bear which deflated almost immediately but, there was so much going on that she didn’t perseverate on it for very long.
They had all of the little houses decked out for trick or treating. This particular house was a fishing pond of sorts.
Lots of blow up yard decor. Kyra became quite attached to the skeleton playing the organ. She kept trying to hold its hand. (She will kill me for typing that.)
The apple bobbing was fun, although my kids just picked out the apples with their fingers. Yep, I am a bit of a germ-a-phob right now since Swine Flu is racing out of control and my kiddos pick up every tiny bug that goes around.
Bobbing for donuts was another big hit. I guess eating anything off of a string is exciting for little kids. To be honest, they were just floored that I let them eat whatever they wanted. Toad was in seventh heaven. Although, what would you expect from a 2 year old that weighs just 7 pounds less than is 7 year old sister. Yep folks, Toad is a chub.
Again, need I saw more about little one. I don’t think that this is following the doctors recommendation of more carrots and skim milk instead of 2%. What can I say, my kiddo likes to eat.
Kaseon chose a ghost. He is in a bit of a ghost period at the moment. He is entranced with them and is drawing them all of the time. He wants to make a giant ghost for the front of the lawn. Maybe, one day, he will meet a real life ghost. Or so he wishes.
Kyra chose the candy corn. Side note here… not that it has anything to do with this post but, I LOVE candy corn. I could eat an entire bag by myself at a single sitting. I know… you are thinking gross. I am thinking Mmmmmm.
