Scarecrow Festival

We went to a Halloween Fair at Thanksgiving Point called the Scarecrow Festival. To prepare him for it, we told him that we were going to go see bats, pumpkins, spiders, ghosts, and scarecrows. When we picked up Grandma (mom-mom) and Grandpa (papa), Gavin kept telling them about the bats, pumpkins, ghosts, spiders and scarecrows. He was getting so excited for it.

We started out the outing with Gavin having a melt down because he wanted to go walk right in the middle of a game some kinds were playing and we wouldn't let him.

He immediately brightened up when two worker girls came and gave him some candy

Gavin spotted this HUGE blow-up shark a mile away and started running and screaming towards it. It turned out to be a really big slide, so Tim took him down it. Gavin is still talking about that BIG shark.
We took him in his first haunted house. He kept asking to see ghosts, so when I took him in, he would point to everything and ask if it was a ghost. I ended up just telling him that yes, it was. Half way through he got really scared of the dark and he started to whimper. When we got out, he started smiling and yelling about all the ghosts he saw...so I guess it was a fun experience
Of course he loved playing in the pretend airplane. He could have stayed there for hours
He got a dinosaur balloon
Tim took him on the Spider Speedway. Gavin and Tim, of course, both loved it
