Oh boy, this was our first real Halloween. Breccan is finally old enough to get the excitement, so trick or treating was an amazing discovery for him. It was Olin’s first, too, and our first in our new community. Luckily, Steveston has a lot to offer. We didn’t even get to all of it this year! We just did a short trick or treat and watched the local fireworks show**
Breccan was reluctant to pick a costume. He kept saying he just wanted to dress up like Olin. I bought them matching fireman PJ’s from the Gap just in case. He seemed really happy when I joked this morning that I couldn’t tell them apart.
I did manage to talk him into wearing his fireman costume from last year. I told him he could only jump in puddles if he was wearing it. He was happy to put it on then! Olin wore the same Carters dinosaur costume Breccan has worn a few times. I’m happy we’ve gotten some good use out of it !
I hope you all had a spooky but safe Halloween!
**In BC, particularly in the Vancouver area, there is a long standing tradition of fireworks at Halloween. No one quite knows why!
