For the first time ever, I’d be willing to bet, school was closed on Halloween. Due to the storm, some schools still didn’t have power and roads were still closed. I’d also bet that it was the first time the school’s Halloween parade was cancelled on account of the snow!
Because of the sidewalk conditions, Grant and I decided to take Tyler trick or treating at a really nice mall about 35 minutes from us. It was the best decision I have ever made about what to do about the problem of Halloween. I can’t walk from house to house, so I used to drive alongside Grant and Tyler while they trick or treated. Going to the mall, we got a wheelchair, and I was able to take part in everything! I highly recommend this option if you are unable to walk any kind of distance.
If you’ve been keeping up with us, your memory is correct. This is the THIRD year in a row that Tyler has gone as Spider-Man for Halloween!
Weary of trick or treating, Tyler blew off some steam at a cute little indoor play park, free of charge that he is almost too big for.
Luckily Tyler is a reasonable Trick or Treater and he didn’t want to stay at the mall more than a couple of hours. He got plenty of candy anyway!
You can’t miss what you’ve never experienced, so Tyler really didn’t care that he missed the big Halloween parade at school. He was happy with all the candy he got. Now if I can only stay away from eating it…
