Well, I am only a month behind in posting this… WOOPS! What can I say, the Suttons have been very busy getting ready for Charlotte’s arrival. The plan was to write multiple posts about all the fun activities we did for Halloween, but seeing as Christmas is quickly approaching, I figured you may all get bored with a million Halloween posts LOL.
SHELBY TWP TRUNK OR TREAT
Our first trunk or treat event was held in Shelby Twp at the Riverbend Park. It was raining but we figured we would tough through it. This event was free and had SOOOOO much to offer! Myles dressed up as Lightening McQueen because Momma was running behind and didn’t have time to make his light up costume yet.
We started with the trick or treating, because…. well why not! Everyone loves candy!
Next, we tried the games they had lined up in the park…
Spider toss, rat toss, ring on the witches hat, etc. Even Daddy got to
We got cider and donuts, then decorated a pumpkin! Myles loved this part!
WIEGAND’S PUMPKIN WALK
Our next Halloween adventure was at Ray Wiegand’s Nursery in Macomb Twp where they had a path lined with pumpkins throughout their entire yard/building with little trick or treat stations. We paid $8 (per child) and us parents got in for free. This event was PACKED!
They had some really great set ups including Batman’s cave, Minions, Paw Patrol, Witch’s layer, etc! And of course, donuts were delicious!
HALLOWEEN GHOSTS & GOODIES AT HUCKLEBERRY RAILROAD
We then rounded up some of our greatest friends and family and took the long trek to Genesee County for a train ride and some more trick or treating! This adventure was not free. Actually, it was the most expensive, but we enjoyed every minute of it and will probably pay for it again next year! There was a buffet available, but we went back to our house to carve pumpkins and eat pizza afterwards (next bullet point).
As soon as we arrived, we got right on the train and only had but a few minutes to spare before we took off! There were a TON of fun set ups to watch as we went rolling by, fun Halloween music, and great narration the entire ride!
When we got off the train, we were just in time to catch the magic show at the theater in Crossroads Village. The kids were DYING laughing!
They had a great set up for trick or treating. There were numbered set ups that the kids walked through the entire village getting treats along the way. Some of them were even inside buildings! They had some great set ups!
We had to stop and check out the hay maze… the kids loved this and we had a difficult time getting them out LOL.
At the last treat stop, we got cider and donuts!!! Those were (again) a hit!
PUMPKIN CARVING AND PIZZA
After Huckleberry Railroad, we all came back to the house for some “za” and pumpkin carving. This is the second year in a row we have done this and hope to continue this tradition as we always have a blast doing it!
Last year versus this year… bigger pumpkin, bigger toddler, and bigger belly ❤️🎃 Same goofy, curly headed little man!
