Maggie's First Halloween

I have decided that Halloween is a lot more fun when you are the kid or you have kids. Last year we had NO trick-or-treaters and we were a little bummed. Hopefully this year we are more successful; so in preparation we bought a huge bag of candy and made sure Maggie looked the part in her cute pumpkin costume. Actually, Maggie hates her costume and goes biz-irk when she in it... it's so funny to see her try to get out of it!

Pioneer Village

I have been wanting to go to Pioneer Village in Salt Lake since I was a little girl... finally I convinced Andrew that we had to go! The park is soo amazing; they have some REAL homes and buildings (one of Brigham Young's houses) and some duplicates that are really fun to look at. They had people dressed up like pioneers and some acting the part-- the guy in our "coffin" pictures is an actual furniture maker, he makes some beautiful pieces all by hand (yes, he made the coffins)! Right before we left the park a huge parade of pioneers came through the center street of the town singing hymns and shooting guns, the group was a stake at the end of a pioneer treck... it was very cool to see. Unfortunately we arrived to the park at 4 and they close at 5 on Saturdays, so I felt a little cheated by time!
