...ok...ok...i know this is a little late...but...here it is anyway!
This year we decided to ditch the Dallas Arboretum (which last year we vowed to make our "annual Halloween trick-or-treat adventure since it was so beautiful). After working in the yard all day, and me re-injuring my poor aching back, I just couldn't deal with all the crowds. So instead, we joined our friends the Dutton's and their extended family. Nicky was super-excited to get to see his friend Trevor, as it had been about two weeks-ish since they last
We arrived at their house around 6pm, snacked on some yummy chips and queso, then rounded everyone up for a quick photo...
...then around their neighborhood we trekked...in search of all things sugar!
I was surprised to see a few things:
- Most people trick-or-treating in the Dutton's neighborhood, did not in fact live in their neighborhood.
- There were really no two costumes alike - yes, there were several witches, etc, however, they were all decorated differently, so I thought that was kinda nice.
- The age of which most trick-or-treaters has definitely increased since the last time I went house-to-house begging for candy. And I don't mean there were 17 year olds instead of 14, although there were those as well. I mean there were grown ADULTS, toting Wal-Mart bags with which to carry their free loot. Really? Ya can't just hop on down to the local gas station and buy yourself a Kit-Kat?!
