She’s got my back

October 26, 2011

Let me tell ya, when the zombie apocalypse comes, I want V by my side. We took her to the Hill on Saturday, it being the final destination of the Ottawa zombie walk, and she was a zombie spottin’ machine. (How often do you get to say to your not-quite 4 year old kid, ‘c’mon honey, time to go watch the undead’?):

She definitely thought it was cool that little kids could be zombies too:

Zombie lurching towards my daughter. Notice the concern I express as I photograph him:

The Canadian zombie amused her to no end:

The only time she was really concerned was when this zombie hunter was taken down by a pack of raging (who knew?) zombies:

I think if she could have jumped in to help she would have.

I still haven’t convinced her to be a zombie yet, even after pointing out you could be a zombie princess:

(ya I know, but it’s pretty darn close to a princess for a 4ish year old).
But she is up for more zombie spotting next year, I’ll get her walking yet!

      It was a lot of fun to see, we probably should have left a little earlier (we were aiming for the hill at 4:30 and got stuck on the QV – Saturday lane closures!
      It was a tonne of fun and really cool to see how much effort people put into some of the costumes. There are zillions of awesome photos out there from Saturday and we’ll be back for sure!

    I love this! Too fun! (And educational — I swear….)

    I wish we had a Zombie Walk close to us (central Ohio). My daughter is a paid costume actor at an annual haunted house called The Scareatorium, in Dublin, Ohio. She’s a zombie, queen of the zombie graveyard. I volunteered one night, and worked with her in the graveyard. She told me I was quite good, and I even got a few people to raise their hands (means they had it, and want to be safely escorted out immediately with flashlights). : )

    I’ve just posted a few photos on my blog of her all done up.

      Ha! It cracks me up that the Columbus Zombie Walk is in May! Sorry you don’t have closer Halloween zombie fun.

        Well that’s the first I heard of a Zombie Walk in Columbus. I work in Columbus, and live in a city close by. I’ve been clueless! The Midwest Haunter’s Convention is the first week in June, I believe, so maybe the Zombie Walk is the weekend before. I’ll have to check that out. Apparently my daughter knew all about it, and is planning to go with a friend from the haunt she works at.

    I totally would have believed you if you said that first pic was you and the kid was V!
    Very cool. Love that she wasn’t freaked out! Not sure my V would have made it 🙂

    I don’t get the zombie craze. Vampires & werewolves are where its at.

      Vampires can’t go out in the day though and werewolves only get three days a month *g*. My preference is the Buffy-era vampires, these sparkly ones just don’t do it for me.

C'mon, tell me what you think. You know you want to!
