Pumpkin Patch and Halloween
Our family spent an afternoon at the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago, and on Halloween we had a nice night of trick-or-treating.
We headed to the patch on a nice 88 degree day. Yuck. It wasn't quite the flannel-shirt-wearing day we had hoped for, but enjoyed our time anyway.
Collin's parents and brother, Austin, joined us. The big hit at the patch is always the tall slides. This year even Bennett got to ride one with his mommy and daddy.
This little guy enjoyed his first trip to the pumpkin patch.
We had a nice night celebrating Halloween. Dawson had to work, and Eli was recovering from being sick and didn't really feel like doing the whole costume thing and trick-or-treating. He hunkered down in his room playing video games instead.
I was a grandmummy even though Collin, Kyndal, and Bennett spent the evening with Collin's family and Bennett's cousins. Wasn't he the cutest hobo you've ever seen?
Brynne, however, was up for a fun night, and Rick and I had fun walking around town with her and her friends.
Early on she said she wanted to be a hot dog, but was questioning her costume choice as the night started. Running into ketchup and mustard confirmed that her choice was a good one!
It was a beautiful night in the 70's, and we walked all around uptown where the businesses and churches line the two main streets to hand out candy. It's a safe and fun alternative to going door-to-door.
Overall, October was a fun month spent with lots of family. Dawson celebrated his 20th birthday, we visited our family in Oklahoma, celebrated my grandmother's 85th birthday, and my brother and his family came for a visit from Oregon. It was a great month!
