From the Patch to the Porch

It was a good thing that Ben's preschool went to the pumpkin patch at the beginning of October, because we never actually made it this year as a family. Things kept coming up. I got to go with him on his preschool field trip to a cute farm in Livermore. He got to pick a pumpkin, a gourd, and an indian corn.
On Halloween day we finally went to go get the rest of our pumpkins, but settled on a local farmers market instead of another pumpkin patch. There was a small corn maze and a little petting zoo, so I don't think Ben really knew the difference.
We were going to try and cram in carving that day too, but amongst all the festivities it never happened. So we decided to keep the Halloween season going and carved our pumpkins the day after Halloween. I think we get better and better at the carving every year. I did both the spider for Ben (he picked it out on the computer), and the ghost for my pumpkin. And James' pumpkin was in tribute of his Utah Utes joining the Pac 12 this year. And that's the end of the Halloween posts.
