We packed up the kids last weekend and headed to Sugar House to watch the 5th annual Giant Pumpkin Regatta. The website said the race started at 1, so we arrived at 12:45. Nothing was really happening when we got there so we asked around. Turns out they raced at 11. We missed it by a long shot. Sadly, we didn't see the race, but we did enjoy some awesome people watching and saw a few people paddling around in giant pumpkins. Oh, and we got a family photo on a Giant Pumpkin so there is that. 

Some of the pumpkins were over 400 pounds!

So many cute little dogs all over.
