…and it was the cutest thing in the world!
Halloween is something I look forward to all year round. I enjoy dressing up, and I LOVE candy. But this year was extra special because it was the first time we got to take our son Trick or Treating! Last year, Little L was just too young and couldn’t walk, so we celebrated Halloween at a party.
This year the countdown was on. Since Logan is pretty much oblivious to why Halloween is awesome, Eric and I were definitely more excited, but just one round of ringing a doorbell and collecting his candy, he was hooked! Because he was enjoying himself so much, we went to A LOT more houses than I had planned on. I worried we might bump into that person that would be snotty about us bringing such a young child by, but the warm response we received was the complete opposite. We heard, “Oh, isn’t he just the cutest!” And, “What a great name,” more times than I could count.
Before we hit the neighborhood Trick of Treating scene, we went down to The Quarry Market. They had Trick or Treating at the various stores and the employees went above and beyond to make sure it was a memorable experience for the kids–many even dressed up. I’m very proud that our city has places for children to go on Halloween if they don’t live in a neighborhood. I have to say hands down that Whole Foods was the best! They had crafts, games, snacks, and candy!
Honestly, I could not have imagined a sweeter first Halloween with our little guy, and the candy is pretty good, too.
