The Hallowe'en break has begun, and to kick it all off I took the family to Alderside Farm's Pumpkin patch, to choose and carve a Jack O' Lantern. I booked this a few weeks back, and Jack had been excited about it all month. Well, the day finally arrived when we got to ride the big blue tractor up to the Pumpkin field.
My poor puffy-faced husband had his wisdom teeth removed yesterday under heavy sedation and was still feeling a bit woozy, but he didn't want to miss pumpkin-pickin'. He wasn't allowed to do much for 24 hours, including driving and carrying the baby, so since I was holding Noah and the camera, we had no choice but to have Barry to carry all our pumpkins. We figured dropping the pumpkins wouldn't be as bad as dropping the baby. Look at him. High on pain killers - Dear help him. He's a brave soldier, isn't he?
Jack chose the perfect 'kin, and we hopped back on the tractor, which took us back to the farm, where we carved our Jack O'Lanterns. It was a swell Hallowe'en activity for little ones (and us adults too). Jack probably enjoyed the hot chocolate back in the barn the most. He's a serious chocolate monster, just like his Ma.
Happy Hallowe'en, you lot!
Here's our week that was!
