31 for 21 | Day 31 - October 30th


We met the author/photographer of the beautiful book, "I'm Down With You" today at the Buddy Walk. His photographs are so stunning and we enjoyed talking to him!
He has a wonderful soul, you can just tell...
 



Of course, our 1st stop were the bouncy's...
 



I think turned out to be my favorite photo of the entire day...

Matthew got to sit on the ASU police motorcycle!




Ryan drove a robotic arm for a bit... (Matthew did too)
 
My favorite photo of Ryan from the day...
 
We ended up getting Matthew (and Ryan) up on the float to ride for the parade. We had already been there almost 2 hours and he was wanting to be on Michael's shoulders, so on the float he went! ;)


When we got to the end of the route, we just pulled over and watched the rest of the parade go by. We taught Matthew how to make the Devil's pitch fork on his fingers and once he figured out that he could get all the parade people going by to cheer by doing it - that's all he did! LOL!




Then we came home, Daddy left for work and we carved pumpkins. Matthew wanted a "happy face", so we went through the patterns until he liked the "happy face"!
 
He actually dug right in this year and scooped out the pumpkin guts himself, mostly with the scoop, but 2 handfuls with his HAND! That's big my friends!
 




Once Ryan finally picked out a pattern (a witch with a cauldron), he whipped right through it. Of course this is after he had me scoop out the pumpkin guts for him (didn't want too! - LOL!). And then he added 2 other faces to it too.


Matthew carved and carved. He did the eyebrows himself and most of the mouth, and then I helpd him finish to get it done!



THEN we went trick-or-treating. It was Ryan's 1st year to stay home and pass out candy. He's just tall enough, I thought he'd get some looks - LOL! We thought he and one of the neighborhood boys were going to sit in the driveway and pass it out, but they ended up at the house next door. We put up a note to head over there on our door. Matthew made it down the one big street here that everyone sits outside and then he was ready to go home. He would go up, politely say "Trick or Treat", they would put candy in his pumpkin and he would ask them what it was - LOL! Most people got his humor about it - I hope - LOL! He was just keeping a tally of how much chocolate he got, since that's all he'll eat out of it all! Then he would say "Thank You" and off he would go! We saw quite a few people out that we know, including several kids from my school that I didn't know were in the neighborhood. After the one street, we came home and passed out candy for a little while (only about 5 sets of TorT's) and then it was bed time. I figure we'll get a few more tomorrow night (hopefully - for there is alot of candy left!!!)
Well - today was a long day and I'm off to bed!
