We met up with my friend Eli and her family for some pre-trick-or-treating festivities. The weather was actually really nice for Utah at the end of October.

We had some pre-Halloween fun before the actual trick-or-treating. Halloween is much more festive in Utah than it was in North Carolina.
We went to Gardner Village to see the witch decoration and other Halloween stuff.
Also went to Henry’s kindergarten Halloween party. Henry is posing with the pumpkin he decorated (the blue one with the sculpey-clay bugs on top).
Also make it to Becca’s Halloween parade at school. Becca was a “witch princess” (think either a very fancied-up witch, or a princess with a black hat and a broom).
On Halloween afternoon we went trick-or-treating at Adam’s office.

Adam’s mom teaches high school art, so we went and did some art projects with her (during a day she didn’t have school). The kids were excited about going to “Grandma’s school” for weeks before we went on our trip to KS. We made masks, painted, made jewelry, and even threw some pots! We got some help from Grandpa Mike and from Aunt Megan too.
My mom was just getting the garage floor refinished, so the kids spent a lot of time playing in the currently-empty garage.
The kids and I went to Kansas City for UEA weekend (supposedly a weekend for the big Utah teachers union’s conference, also coincidentally the opening weekend of deer hunting season…). Adam had to stay and work.
We met my dad at the hospital cafeteria for lunch.
Caroline did some indoor 4-wheeler riding at my parents’ house. I’m pretty sure that Adam bought the little battery-powered 4-wheeler when Becca was two, so it’s been around for a while.
The kids were always excited to see Grandpa.
We also went out to Adam’s parents’ house a few times. Played some foosball with Adam’s little brother.
Did some crafts and made some pretzels.
Henry was pretty excited to find a bunch of old transformers.
We made haunted gingerbread houses. My dad helped.
All the fountains in town were dyed blue–definitely the most Royals enthusiasm in recent memory!
The kids also get recruited to play tennis with my dad.
Also had ice cream (and lot of other treats).
And then we finally had to leave. :(
