October 2012

This October was jammed packed full of fun.  Kiley went to at least 3 different trick or treating/carnival events.  All over town, numerous days out of the week, every week of the month, some kind of Halloween themed event was going on.  We found out it's a pretty popular holiday in Ogden.  So naturally I have a lot of photos to share.  

   First up, Little Bear Bottoms in Wellsville, Ut.  Has a pumpkin patch, huge corn maze, hay fort, and spooky trail ride!  
   Heather and I took Greydi and Kiley there for a girls day out.  We had so much fun!  The corn maze was massive.  We spent a good deal of time in there, not once, but twice and could never find the other end.  We kept ending up back where we started.  The girls had fun running around and Heather and I had fun chatting.

   As you can see, it's a pretty big corn maze!  And it's not like you can stand on top of the fort and see which way to go.  Most of all the twists and turns are hidden.  Our second attempt we did do better and made it further out into the maze, but still kept circling and getting no where.  We weren't the only ones though.  Kept passing another set of kids with their moms. The website did say it takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete. 

The hay fort was so much fun!  There was two, the one pictured above is the largest one.  Inside the fort was dark tunnels weaving you all through it.  I helped the girls climb all the way to the top.  We then jumped off numerous times onto the big mattresses below.  At first they were wary of going down the big tube slide, but after one try there was a lot of "Let's do that again!"  The hay fort was awesome.  Only downside was the itchy hay kept making it's way into your underwear!  

   The Dinosaur Park Carnivore Carnival was the first Halloween carnival we went to.  Our neighbors have passes and were able to get us in free!  Kiley had a great time with her friend Embrie.  She played lots of games, won candy and little toys.  Went to the craft room and made a pumpkin picture and hat.  Our friends got her a cool glow bracelet.  Since it was still early in October and I hadn't started on Kiley's costume yet, we had to throw something together.  She wore her Rapunzel dress, a masquerade mask and I glittered her up.  It was cool walking around the park at night.  They had spooky lights spotlighting the dinosaurs.

   Creature's of the Night at the Ogden Nature Center was the other carnival we went to.  This time Kiley was all dressed up in her Halloween costume.  She decided to be a hoot owl.  And she sure did go around hooting.  The Nature Center had two shows.  An owl show, where they brought out 3 different owls to view.  And then a snake show with 3 kinds of snakes you could touch.  There were lots of games, candy, crafts, a spider web crawl and a spooky hike. Greydi, Kirby & Heather also joined us and Greydi spent the night afterwards. 
Here is Robert helping Kiley make a wooden box.  Kiley was pretty good at using the hammer and had a lot of fun with it!
