Today was no exception. Glad to all be back together again we wanted a great family activity for today. So after we took a long walk together this morning and had a quick lunch we decided to head over to Plymouth to check out an event called the Plymouth Pumpkin Palooza. We weren't really sure what we were going to find but the description said there were lots of pumpkin related activities, some trick or treating and lots of family fun. Sign us up!
When we arrived we were totally blown away. The entire downtown area of Plymouth was completely shut down and almost all the local businesses were participating. There were all kinds of pumpkin games (pumpkin bowling, pumpkin mini golf!) for Noah and Kayla to try out, music in the street, wandering performers and of course, candy! Though the line was way too long for us to wait in, there was even a station that a local candy store was running with a free chocolate dipping fountain. Too cool! (I know I'm getting a little exclamation point happy but it really was a lot of fun) There was a costume contest, a pet costume contest and even a couple of fire trucks (be still Noah's heart!) and ambulances you could ride on. And though we only caught the tail end of it the local dance studio even did the "Thriller" dance in the middle of the street.
This is something we will definitely be checking out again next year and we'll make sure to take the kiddos in costume. It was a great family friendly event and both Grant and I are anxious to go back to the downtown area and do some shopping as there were lots of neat local stores. Mama, I'm thinking it might be a really fun place to do some Christmas shopping :) Back to 'normal' tomorrow. Until then...
