So this weekend was exciting for many reasons. But for purposes of this post, I’m going to talk about one that’s become a tradition for me in the five years I’ve been in Salt Lake: the Pumpkin Walk!
Every year the city of Logan puts on this fun family event that involves making scenes with pumpkins, gourds, etc. It may sound weird, but it’s really fun to see. Of course there’s always a theme too. This year’s theme was much better than last year’s. It was “The Magic of Animation.” I don’t know if it just lent itself better to creative scenes or if this year’s entries were just more interesting, but it was definitely better.
I haven’t mentioned it yet, but it was also freezing! I was glad it only took us about an hour to go through. We may have (cough, cough) cheated just a little bit and gone through backwards because the line to get in was way too long. But it all worked out just fine anyway because although there’s a bottleneck right at the beginning as you walk through it spreads out and doesn’t matter anyway.
Since pictures can illustrate my point so much better than words can, I hope you’ll enjoy seeing for yourself just why I love this.
First off we have Toy Story. We discovered that they hid one of the little green aliens in every scene, but didn’t know it until we were halfway through. My nephew took great delight in finding them before we’d even had a chance to look.
This one’s a tip of the hat to my home state. :)
Come on now who doesn’t love “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Up”??
Lest you think I took only pictures of the scenes (trust me when I say I didn’t), here are a few people pictures too. It was just a little bit crazy so I didn’t get as many as I would’ve liked, like an entire group shot. Oh well! Bumblebee was being so silly and kept making faces when I took the pictures. Since it was dark, I didn’t know until after the picture was taken. Oh well!
Okay, I’m pretty sure that I got completely carried away but bear with me for two more pictures. One is the Fab Four (as the Fashionista likes to call them) and the other is for Miss Sassy
pants, who loved Fablehaven.
