I should have worn a Big S this Halloween. In fact, I was so tired I am only getting around to blogging about this now, nearly 2 weeks later.
Our Halloween festivities included a visit to the Stanley Park Ghost Train and Spooky Barn, and of course the Richmond Country Farm Pumpkin Patch.
However, the trip to the pumpkin patch I ventured on all by myself..well me and my little ones. What was I thinking???? I had nothing to do and because we hadn't gotten a pumpkin yet, I thought we could just go to the farm, pick a pumpkin and be on our merry way. NO! Although all the hay and farm animals and displays are awesome and easy enough to walk around, I did not see any pumpkins. In fact, you must take a hay ride on a wagon to get to the patch...I must have forgotten all this. Here I was thinking, you show up, pose for cute pics and someone directs you to a bunch of little pumpkins. So fumbling to put Rayna in the Bjorn and handle Caiden (who took a liking to throwing apples in the pond that day) I did the bravest thing ever....I went on the wagon. All the mud and glory of it later, we ended up with 3 cute pumpkins and a very happy guy.
I didn't get the glorious awesome pictures I dreamed of but when I look back, it actually shows a wonderfully busy yet festive Halloween.
But next year I am only going to dress as a Superhero, not be one. Hehehe
