Pumpkin Walk

Oct 24 I went up to Logan, alone :( Richard was really tired and did not want to travel anymore, to see my family and friends. It has been a long time since I have been able to get back up to Logan so I was very happy to have this opportunity. I went shopping with my mom, was Andreas little Gopher, went to a movie with Sammy and Robert (Paranormal Activity, made my head hurt from being so bouncy and moving all the time), and went to the pumpkin walk with my Parents and bestest buds the Trappetts.

It used to be a tradition in my family that we go to the pumpkin walk together, but as all the kids have grown up it is hard to get everyone together. For those who don't know what the pumpkin walk is... It is put on and supplied by North Logan City. There is a theme every year and people volunteer their time and talents to make "scenes" from pumpkins. It is a lot of fun, we did it a for a few years. Some people go all out and use clay to mold faces onto the pumpkins, and others have professional faces painted on. It is not as big as it use to be and that is okay because it is still there. I want to be able to take my kids to the pumpkin walk, when I have some kids, but it is something from my child hood I will never forget.

And here is one scene so you guys can see what I mean. For this one, someone used clay to mold out the facial features and then painted the pumpkins. It is so much fun to see what people are capable of doing.

Swine Flu

Despite my best effort I got the flu. I don't know where I got it from, because at work I washed my hands a lot, wore my mask, and I even got a flu shot. My family doctor said it is to late for me to get on some special meds to help control the signs and symptoms but he gave me some for Richard.

So now I am in isolation to my bed room for a week. So it just goes to show that you don't know where or from whom you can get it.
