They boys are very much into pumpkins and Halloween this October. So in the past few weeks, we have certainly gotten our fill of all things pumpkin! Earlier in the month we headed to Providence for our annual trip to the Jack-0-latern Spectacular at Roger Williams Zoo. As usual, the crowd was HUGE. We actually lost Pete and Jack about 1/4 of the way down the trail. Somehow, we all managed to get to the end at the same time though
That same weekend, we also took a trip to the pumpkin patch with Nana. The boys each picked out their own little pumpkin, and helped us pick a couple big ones for carving. They loved pulling the wagon and trying to pick up the pumpkins!
This past weekend, we finally carved the pumpkin. Jack provided detailed instructions for how Pete should carve the face. A drawing was also commissioned and received Jack approval. In the past, Jack preferred to just watch us clean and carve, but this year, he wanted in on the action. Both he and Andrew were content to sit and pull out the “guts,” laughing hysterically as they did. Pete decided this was his most successful carving venture to date–we have to agree!
