Pumpkin Smash! We’ve been tossing our pumpkins out E’s window for a few years now. Always fun. Heart got a little too close to the action for my comfort. This year they weren’t as gooey as some years. They still exploded nicely though.
Another Halloween done. Jack o lanterns, trick or treating, friends and family time. Lovely
Yesterday I saw some Thrifty’s ads about smashing pumpkins for composting. I could imagine a huge dumpster and people tossing pumpkins in to see them smash.
It sounded like fun, so I did something similar for our pumpkins. We always compost them, but I always have to break them up. This year I let the kids throw them out Elliot’s window to smash them.
It was fun and I can imagine the requests to do it again next year.
This morning we drove out to Galey Farm to get our pumpkins. It was a little colder than we were expecting, but we dressed the kids appropriately. Gloves would have been a good idea all around.
The kids enjoyed the tractor ride.
Sprout found the perfect pumpkin, and here he is showing it off.
Family picture time!
Some partially artsy shots. I am very much out of practice with photography. I know there were lots of photographic opportunities there, but I could not capture anything I felt I liked.
