Pumpkin Carving, Royals in the World Series, & Halloween!


{ October 27 – 31st, 2014 }

This week was full of Halloween festivities! Lots of fun :)

+ But first, we went to a new fun trampoline place called Fly High Trampoline Park with some friends after the gym. We met up with Abby DeGraff, Heather Hartman, Carrie Woolley, Erin Neville, & Cosette Crane. Ryder was afraid of the trampolines at the very beginning but at the end he was loving them! He carried around two big balls the whole time (1st photo above haha) & was in heaven. He would run up and down the trampolines. He also loved the music since it was loud. And as you can tell, the moms had fun too (photo above…PS. Didn’t get the memo it was a “Mom’s only” photo so I’m holding Ryder and of course, jumped too late so I look super lame ;) We will be going back!

+  Kevin went on a business trip to Utah from October 27th to the 28th.

+ Because of all his traveling and accounts in town, we kind of ran out of time to go to the pumpkin patch as a family… :( Of course, Ryder & I went on 3 play dates to them haha. I ended up having to run to King Sooper’s to get overpriced lame pumpkins because Kevin only had a small window of time when he could carve them! We carved (me really) pumpkins during a Royals game (they were in the World Series)… I carved Ryder a Mickey Mouse pumpkin which kind of turned out lame haha. I accidentally made the Mickey Mouse face WAY TOO BIG that you could see into the whole pumpkin lol. Usually I think things through but I was trying to get it finished before he went to bed… I learned my lesson lol. He did like the pumpkin though!!! He wanted to carry his pumpkin full of candy out to it and eat candy while looking at it (photo above) ;) The next day I carved my pumpkin into an owl which turned out awesome but I didn’t get any good photos of it! Kevin procrastinated and didn’t even carve his pumpkin! Next year!

+ While Kevin was out of town, Josh & Emily Peterson (& baby Skyler) came over and brought me a Mary’s Mountain Cookie since they knew I was all alone. They were SO nice to do that! We hung out for a bit and then they left back home to Loveland. They are the best!!

+ I checked out a new series at the library, the Delirium series written by Lauren Oliver & I am loving them! I am currently in the second book, Pandemonium. I highly recommend them! (Photo above)

+ I had to do some insurance paperwork at some of my doctors in Loveland so I stopped by Wee Steps since Gwen told me they were having their Halloween Party that day. I invited Emily Peterson to come along with. We just hung out and talked and ate some yummy Halloween treats they had. It was fun! Oh, and funny thing, Gwen was wearing a San Francisco Giants t-shirt & I was wearing a Kansas City Royals zip up hoody so of course we got a picture… (photo above)…FYI I just came from the gym guys!!!

+ The Kansas City Royals were in Game 7 of the World Series vs. the San Francisco Giants so obviously we watched it! Kevin is in Young Men's so he made them come over to watch the game at our house haha. Unfortunately they lost…but they did play well in all of the playoffs & World Series! Cool that they did so well!

+ Tiny Tots Trick-or-Treating on Halloween: Gwen & Anna invited us to join them for Tiny Tots Trick-or-Treating in downtown Fort Collins! We met up at 10 am and downtown was a ZOO! I was shocked how popular it was. It was actually kind of cold too. Luckily, I had Ryder in the stroller so I wasn’t chasing him haha. But we pushed the kiddos around and they said “….treat!” and got candy ;) It was fun but then just got too crazy and cold! ( Photo above of the kiddos! )

+ Halloween! Ryder’s 1st time legit trick-or-treating happened! And it was probably one of the funnest nights in a long time! Kevin and I took him out for an hour and he just was loving it. He would say “trick or treat” but mostly treat…and would say “thank you.” Almost every house we went to, he would be like “WOOK!!!” and crouch down and get a good look at the carved pumpkins on everyone’s doorsteps. Sometimes he would walk to the next house and sometimes we would carry him. It was so funny that he struggled to get candy sometimes due to his Rio bird gloves ;) We chose a new neighborhood kind of behind ours that is full of a bunch of ranch-style homes. We were hoping they would be more older people who would be home instead of families off trick-or-treating themselves and we were right! Some of the people wanted to talk to us for 5-10 minutes lol. One lady was waving us over to her house! They would ask “So which house are you in?” etc… so the people we trick-or-treated at needed the trick-or-treaters haha. It was fun. The people were so cute. Then Kevin had to go do dinner with an account in town and I put Ryder to bed and passed out candy to the trick-or-treaters at our home.

What a fun Halloween Week! That should be it!
