More Halloween Fun

Documentation of Ava's first pumpkin patch experience, as well as her first pumpkin-carving experience. (We had no pumpkins or Jack-o-lanterns last year, what with the 3rd-day postpartum exhaustion and all. Liesl, not quite 2 at the time, apparently forgave us.)



The family at our local pumpkin patch

Pulling the super duper heavy pumpkin cart. (Notice her tiny pumpkin gourd in the front of the cart. Hey, she was haulin' it.)

Pretty.
(Oh...the flowers are pretty, too.)

This place is cool.

Precious cargo.

Pumpkin guts.

It's a sensory experience. (The floor thought so, too.)

Cookin'.

Hangin'. Messin'. Enjoyin'.

Spoonin'.

Discussing the fine art of pumpkin design.
(Three triangles and a mouth. Our family lacks spontaneous creativity.)

You can guess what happens next...

...and, they're down.
Needless to say, we didn't clean and roast the pumpkin seeds this year. (They were, um, scattered within a 12-foot radius.)

I love the video and the pics are great. I miss those days with my kids.

You'd think I'd get used to how cute the girls are. Nope. Can't wait to see Ava in pigtails someday, too! Loved the bug theme costumes--Miriam went as a fireman, and Owen was the dalmatian.
