tonight was the pumpkin palooza at the utah state botanical gardens in kaysville. we were lucky enough to be some of the first 100 people there to get free donuts and root beer. always a good start to a night when donuts are involved.
brooklyn was thrilled!
it was absolutely freezing and trying to keep our chubby little giraffe and our sassy little witch warm was quite a chore. kendall and i did get lucky to take a nursing break in the nice warm car.
brooklyn got to have her face painted. if there is face painting within a hundred miles, she wants it done. totally her favorite!
brooklyn and ellie posing in front of the spooky painting... before they got too cold.
there were several activities for kids and adults to do and i really think if it hadn't been so cold, it would have been a lot more enjoyable. brooklyn really didn't really seem to mind the cold. she just kept asking what was next.
my MIL tried so hard to get a good family picture for us, but brooklyn has turned into a difficult picture taker as of late. but we got a few decent ones. little stinker!
the fun ended with a costume contest that took waaaay too long. brooklyn was really stoked about it even though she had no idea what it was. when her name was finally called, she wasn't sure what to do and just stood there. then she wanted to know if she won. we left before that happened. it was freeeeezing and there were way too many little people in that costume contest. so as we were getting ready to leave we heard them announce that there were bracelets and candy for all of the participants. that made her night.
we're going to bed nice and warmed up, and ready for another fun day tomorrow!
up next, the pumpkin walk!
