Carson City Historic walking tour bust. Ha!

On Friday the 30th Nevada decided to observe Nevada day.   The real Nevada day is Oct 31st.  Nevada became a State in 1864.  In Carson City Halloween candy is passed out Friday the 30th and then the next morning, the 31st, the Nevada State Parade is taking place starting at 10am.

We participated in the free historic walking tour which took place at 10am starting on the capital steps.   We got there as they were heading out.   Ha!   There was quite a crowd of mostly golden age folks and homeschool families that we’ve previously met elsewhere.  Yay friends!  The woman leading the tour needed a megaphone but it seemed to be ok because we were given great booklets that stayed in the order of what she was talking about.

Sweet quiet woman leading the tour.

Sweet Arielle was towed in our handy dandy stroller along with big brother Gavin.   Even so, Arielle gave out quite a few Haunted Mansion screams, but being that it was Halloween time we felt it appropriate.  Hehe.

Tour ready. ..just waiting for folks to catch up.

But really, she was over the walking and waiting and more walking waiting part.

We left the tour a bit early to get a bite to eat.

Mixing little ones, a tour guide that we couldn’t hear and a lot of walking and stopping doesn’t add up to fun for neither the kids nor parents.   Well,  hopefully next year!
