THIS is happening today.
I think I’m almost more excited than Owen will be when he comes home.
The only problem is… it’s ALSO Halloween. Aka the day we were going to pick Owen up early from school and feed him a quick dinner so he could get out trick-or-treating before bedtime. If he sees the swingset? All bets are off.
So here’s our plan…
HIDE THE SWINGSET.
Yes, we are going to attempt to keep Owen in the dark that a huge wooden and plastic monstrosity created specifically for climbing and jumping and swinging and all of his favorite outdoor activities (we got a rock wall, y’all) exists. Despite the fact that you can see the top over our fence.
Cross your fingers.
Worst case scenario, though, is that he sees it and it trumps trick-or-treating. Not the end of the world. But ideally he gets to enjoy both, at different times.
Happy Halloween! Pics of the pumpkin costume to come tomorrow.
