Truck-or-Treat

When you’re two years old, I suppose a great big truck — complete with headlights, horns, and the sound of a real diesel engine — is more enticing than a bucket of candy that your Mama may or may not let you have in the end.  (You know — the hard candies…)

After a big day at Mother’s Day Out, we went to Tater Daddy’s office, where they go ALL OUT with the trick-or-treating.  Every department is decorated like you wouldn’t believe, and employees are invited to bring their children for a little fun.  I would’ve taken more pictures, but Tater Tot planted himself outside of his Daddy’s office and played with the big truck and the “baby trucks” for the duration of our stay.  When asked if he’d like to walk around and get some candy, he said, “No, thank you.  PLAY WITH TRUCKS!”  Eventually the Thomas costume came right off.  It was getting in the way, don’t-ya-know.

Before leaving, I managed to get him to visit the restroom by bribing him with a snickers if he went to the potty.  It worked.  On our way back to get our things from his Daddy’s office, we ran into a Mummy.  We had to take a picture because of the shirt and all.

He actually knows the mummy, Kim, but it’s hard to smile when your mouth is chock-full of Snickers.  Isn’t her costume great?

See?  He gave her some love before we left.

We left Tater Daddy’s office and the big city and headed to see the grandparents.  It took about an hour or so to get to my Mama’s house.  We visited our cousin, who lives down the street, and then played for a few minutes at Mama’s.  I would have taken pictures, but the little man would NOT stay still.  

After that, it was out to the country for a visit with Gammy and Pawpaw.

Here he is with his Pawpaw reading and then playing with a tractor.

 

It’s a real shame that they don’t like each other…..

So, our Halloween wasn’t necessarily filled with candy, but it was a sweet day. Trucks, tractors, and all.

How was your weekend?

    Great pics. Looks like a good time was had by all.

    My day was filled with just as many “tricks” as it was “treats”. An hour before the official start of trick or treating, I realized I still hadn’t picked up any candy and, in my crazy rush to get to the store, I locked myself out of the house. Yes you read that right. Thankfully, one of my windows – one of the high ones – was unlocked and my hero, I mean my neighbor brought his ladder and climbed in and unlocked my front door. After which we rushed to the store, bought our candy and managed to get ready with more than enough time left in evening.

    Gotta love it.

    Can I just say that you have the cutest Tater in the world?! It almost makes me want to have a little boy someday… even if I wouldn’t know what to do with him! 🙂 (In all seriousness – when my time comes to finally be a mom – I’ll take any baby!)
