Our boys had the wettest, soggiest Halloween of their lives to date this year. We always joke that the rain in the northwest starts on Halloween and continues through the 4th of July. There is some truth to this, but since we became parents, I can only recall one other Halloween with any precipitation, and it wasn’t that bad.
However, if there is such a thing as a good year for a wet Halloween, this was it. Kieron and I both came down with a tummy bug that day, and I could barely get up from the couch. While Kieron was recovering (and Jonathan cleaned the van) Grammy took Avery and Silas out for a little trick-or -treating. Fortunately, Kieron felt well enough to fit in a quick loop around our cul-de-sac a little while later. Avery joined his buddy, Hayden, and his family, later in the evening for some additional Halloween festivities. As it turned out, two days later, Jonathan and Avery caught our bug. I am so glad Grammy was there lend a hand!
Luckily, the weekend prior, there was a Halloween event at our downtown shopping area. The weather was beautiful, and everyone was healthy, so we got in some proper trick-or-treating this day!
