For those of you who aren’t familiar with our channel, we live in the middle of Washington State in a town called Wenatchee:
Like most parents of small children, we find ourselves wondering each holiday about the different activities in our area:
Will there be in-person events this year?
Should we trick-or-treat door-to-door?
What are we dressing up? We are dressing up, right?
This year our kids chose store-bought costumes (as Mama’s sewing machine has been packed up for our next move): Unicorn Princess and Captain America!
We will be making a fun shield prop for Canyon, but just as I was congratulating myself for getting off the hook early this year with costume design, I began to replay last year’s trick or treating experience in my mind.
It had been miles of walking which was hard for little legs – though we had a wagon with us, it slowly filled with jackets and water bottles and props as the children were simultaneously sick of walking and refusing a ride.
In attempts to avoid long meaningless meanders, we are trying a new trick this year. Check your own local areas on Nextdoor App to see where your best local stops will be located, or add your own home to the map!
