Batman Spook Alley

I just finished my second annual Halloween Carnival for Provo City and it turned out AWESOME! It definitely was the best event we have done yet. I don't know if many of you know, but I have been working on this event for two months now. My main responsibility was designing the Spook Alley for the Carnival. I chose to do a "Batman" theme for the Spook Alley and incorporated all of the Batman Villains throughout the whole thing. So I am writing this post because I want to walk everyone through so you can "imagine" what it was like!

(I have included pictures of the Spook Alley so you can sort of get an idea of what it looks like, but the pictures don't do it justice. It is just hard getting good pictures with the black lights, strobe lights, and fog, plus you can't hear the awesome music and see the villains...)

As you enter the Spook Alley, it starts out in the Bat Cave with Batman, where he tells everyone that all of the Villains have escaped and are running around Gotham City causing havoc. He then shows the group of people out of his cave and warns them of the dangers and tells them to be careful!


Then as the go through the rest of the bat cave they approach a Mine Shaft that they have to crawl through to get out of the Bat Cave. Along the way they are met by a Skeleton and other creatures that live in the Cave and Mine Shaft. Once they are out of the Mine Shaft they are in the Forrest outside of Bruce Wayne's Mansion. They then have to go through the Forrest.



They then approach the Insane Asylum where the Scarecrow and his insane patients are waiting for them. They then exit the Asylum to an Alley Way were Cat Woman is. As they turn the corner they get closer to the heart of Gotham City. They are then approached by Two Face. Then they continue on as they enter Gotham City and are met by Joker himself!









At the Carnival, one of our other main attractions was our Quarter Mile Maze. It filled the entire ground floor and was 8 feet tall, it was really impressive! We spent a whole week setting it up, decorating it and putting it all together. Here is a picture of it so you can get an idea of how big it was!



We also had a Magician Show, Halloween Carnival Games, Haunted Movie Theatre... It was a crazy night. I just can't believe how much planning and preparation it took and now it is all over!

Frightmares

This weekend James and I went to Frightmares! It was so much fun. One of my favorite things is Theme Parks...! We spent the whole day hitting up all of the rides and eating yummy food with James's brother Craig and his fiance Josephine. Later that evening we met up with my cousin Spencer and his wife Carissa, her sister Angela and boyfriend Michael. I love hanging out with these guys. We always have so much fun. We also went to all of the Frightmare attractions. The lines were pretty ridiculous for the haunted houses! We went to every haunted house, and I would have to say the "Clown spook alley" was by far the best.

Here are some picture of the eventful day:

Isn't Craig such a cute fairy?





James got in trouble for taking pictures throughout the haunted houses! haha...

Back Home to Vegas

During Fall Break I was so happy because James and I were able to go home for the weekend. It was so awesome! I am use to being able to go home like every other month so it feels like it has been FOREVER since I have been to Vegas!! I was so happy too cause my cousin Spencer and his cute wife Carissa were able to come with us!! It was so much fun having them there they whole time and it made the car trip more barable (I hate driving in the car for long periods of time...)

I think James usually gets bored when I visit home because all I want to do is hang out at the house and play with my mom and siblings...So this visit I made sure that we had a bunch of things to do every day, and Spencer and Carissa were my motivation. We actually went down to the Strip everyday which is impressive for me since I rarely ever go down there unless it has to do with shopping...

The first thing that we did when we got into Vegas was eat at In-N-Out of course! Then we hit up all of the factories like Coca-Cola and M&M... Played at Gameworks, went to my favorite store in the whole wide world: Tillys, did a little shopping at the Las Vegas Outlet Malls, Checked out the Wax Museum, played a lot on the Rip Stick, rode a rollercoaster, ate out at the Buffet in Mandalay Bay, ate yummy gelato at Bellagio, and my mom made us amazing dinners every night we were there! I also was the tour guide the whole weekend as we hit up a bunch of Casinos...We went to: Mandalay Bay, Rio, Ceasars Palace, Circus Circus, Planet Hollywood, The Venetian, The Palms, the New York New York and the Bellagio.




Here are some pictures of the trip! EnJoY!

Rock Star Party

I just got home from such a fun party! Andrea threw a rockstar party for her birthday and it was such a blast! There were so many people there and everyone was just having so much fun. It was rockstar themed so everyone dressed up as rockstars and danced the night away ;) We all danced, played rockband, sat around a fire pit and ate yummy food. The best thing about it was my two sisters came down to spend the weekend with me for Conference and they were able to come to the party. We all got ready before hand and got all dressed up! I love my sisters so much, they are so much fun and I love getting to hang out with them! Alicia also was able to go to the party with us (I love her so much!). Happy birthday Andrea, I love you girl, and you rock!!

Here are some pictures of the fun night!



Here are some modeling pictures of James and me!...Isn't he so cute?!





I love my Andrea so much!
