Halloween is here! Today, I’m off to the school Halloween parade, class party, and trick-or-treat festivities. Tom and Huck have constructed a “haunted mine” in our front yard, made of kid-size soccer goals, a paint tarp, cardboard, and duct tape. They want to hide in the mine and pop out and scare trick-or-treaters who venture up our front walk. Then they want to trick or treat in the neighborhood.
Last Friday night we went with the Cub Scouts to Arata’s Pumpkin Farm out on the coast (about a half hour from where we live, but with a much more rural feel). In addition to loads of pumpkins and gourds of all sorts, Arata’s has a huge maze built from hay bales. We wended our way through the maze in the dark and found hot chocolate and popcorn waiting for us at the end. It was a great night. Here are a few photos:
See you amongst the pumpkins!
