this year we did a few fun things for halloween. this was the first year that arlo really understood the concept of trick or treating and it was pretty cute. on friday night we went to the trunk or treat with dan's parent's family & all of their younger kids. arlo had a really fun time at that, even though he was exhausted from his fun day with grandma val at the pumpkin patch and no nap. 

mmmmmm... his first taste of halloween candy. it's so good. look how tired he was. haha.

his favorite thing at the trunk or treat activity was this fishing game. he could not get enough of it and it was the only thing that he wanted to do.

the following night was our ward's trunk or treat. dan was at the jeff beck concert with his dad... so arlo and i went on our own. arlo was still as excited about the trick or treating and candy. 

here he is with his little buddy, lilly (or cinderella). they were so cute together :)

arlo and his other little friend, grae (the shark)
 "let's go trick or treat! yeah!"

then on actual halloween, we went to the member's only party at the children's museum. 
kim & her kids joined us.
the kids played with legos

watched a puppet show about a ghost who stole candy

rode on a dragon

and played in the dig pit

they also played with the trains (not pictured)

since we did so much before actual halloween night, we didn't go trick or treating on halloween night. 
we stayed in, had a nice dinner, had special halloween cookies, let arlo have more of his candy and pass out candy to the kids who came by. and he seemed very content with that. 

hope you all had a wonderful halloween!
