I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

Tricked or Treated?

Happy Halloween, it is hard to believe that October is over and Thanksgiving and Christmas will soon be upon us.  

We had a great time at our church's Trunk or Treat Event on Friday night.  The event is free and it continues to get bigger each year.  I would estimate that there were over 2500 people strolling around this year and filling their bags with candy.  
Very Creative Trunks

Tracy and I were working the photo booth again this year, which keeps us out of the crowds and gives a great opportunity to enjoy the very cute and creative costumes!
Two of our Photo Booth customers!

Tonight is Halloween and we never know how many kids we are going to get in our neighborhood.  We live at the end of a cul-de-sac and I have the feeling that the kids are either too scared or too lazy to walk to the end of the street.  This is the first year that we didn't carve a pumpkin. I was shocked at how the prices had gone up, so we elected to just use our plastic pumpkins this year.
Maybe my pumpkin scared them away?
Or our Scarcrows?

Hopefully the plastic pumpkins will work!

The treat for us this year will be to give all of our Halloween candy away, while enjoying the kids costumes.  The trick will be having candy left over, which of course, Tracy and I will be forced to eat! :-)

Either way it will be a fun evening and the ASU Sun Devils will be on TV besides, so if I don't have to get up to answer the door, all will not be lost.

We are excited to get up to McDowell Mountain Park for the weekend with our friends from church.  We have our favorite spot reserved and the weather is supposed to be perfect at 80+ degrees.  

If you happen to be in the park this weekend, we are in Space 70, so stop by and say hello.  

Well I better start getting things loaded up for the weekend, so I will wish you all safe and enjoyable travels and thanks for the visit!


  1. Since I'm now in a "gated" community, I won't be having any little goblins pounding on my door tonight. Have fun!

  2. Hope you get plenty of trick or treaters so you and Tracy won't be forced to eat all the candy. Enjoy McDowell this weekend. Since we're on the opposite side of town, we're going to try and get in a hike at the White Tank Mountains. Loving this gorgeous AZ weather. Have fun!

  3. Even though we don't have Trick or Treaters in the apartment we still love to see the cute little ones out for their first or second times.

    Be Safe and Enjoy your weekend getaway.

    It's about time.

  4. Sounds like you had too much fun and camping for the weekend sounds just awesome. We won't be in Arizona until December some time if all goes well.

  5. Ah yes, trick and treating is something the kids in our area seem to avoid too. We only answered the door a few times at our home last Halloween....so.... this year, we've opted to go to our little grandson's home and hand out treats while he, his mom and dad get to knock on neighborhood doors. Should be fun.

  6. Sounds like you had a fun Halloween. You must have a very big church to have 2500 folks stop by. With our new sidewalk in we had more little tricksters than usual but still ended up with a bit of leftover candy. Good thing we have Grands nearby haha.
