Ginormica costume (photo from Amazon.com)
Alright, so my darling daughter had firmly decided that she wanted to be Ginormica or Suzan from Monsters vs. Aliens this Halloween. I thought she would insist to be Raven from Teen Titans Go since she really liked that character in the show. So three weeks before today, I looked for Ginormica costume online. I knew it would be difficult to find one in the stores. As usual, I found one on Amazon. For the price of $9.99 with free shipping (as a Prime member), I admit that the costume was a great deal. Even though the material of the costume is 100% polyester and seems like the quality is for a one-time wear, I still bought the costume for my daughter. She really liked it. She even told me that she’s gonna wear it forever. Oh the happiness of a child is priceless.
So we went to the Boo on Ballard Street in Downtown Wylie on Thursday, October 29th, with my cousin Em and her two toddler girls, AC and Lexi. It was a huge success and it was so much fun as usual. Like other annual events in town, it’s always a well-attended event. Wylie Chamber of Commerce in cooperation of the local businesses, institutions, and the general public made this a successful event for children, youth, and the grown ups. There were lots of treats, giveaways, activities, and attractions for everyone.

Because of the very long long line of trick or treaters going counter clockwise, we didn’t finish the Trick or Treat on Ballard. We took the girls to the Glow in The Dark at the playground. We didn’t even see what other activities were in there because K and AC wanted to go to the Foam Party Pit. It was 10 minutes until the event was over so we just let the two girls go. The inflatable has a machine blowing non-toxic foam bubbles as it makes waves. The kids were having fun diving into the bubbly foam. Of course, they’re all wet and cold. When the two came out of the foam pit, Lexi wanted to go but it was 8:00 P.M. and the in-charge stopped letting kids in. K and AC had lots of fun but they got really cold. 🙂 Good thing I had a towel and a t-shirt in the trunk of my car so I lend Em the towel so she can wipe AC dry. I let K wear the big t-shirt.
Look at that foam pit!
