Prior to people arriving, I took Krew to the nearby pumpkin patch to pick out his very first pumpkin. (Last year was his first Halloween, but he didn't have a pumpkin.) He walked all around the patch, seeming interested but not super excited. Then all of a sudden he let out an "Ohhhhhhh!!!" and ran toward a particularly warty pumpkin. He had found it. His first pumpkin.
After picking out our pumpkins, we headed back home. Krew had to go to bed before the decorating festivities began, but us adults plus Ellie had fun. :) (Ellie was there with mom Emily and lil sis Cate, but Emily and Cate missed out on the pictures somehow. We didn't just randomly steal Ellie for the night. :) )
Dave helped Ellie decorate her pumpkin. :)
We are headed to Florida on Wednesday for Dave's ultimate frisbee nationals. I look forward to this trip every year - I get to see my grandma (we stay with her), soak in some sun, hang out with the other frisbee wives and kiddos, and just relax for four days. Oh, and of course cheer super duper loudly for Dave. GO RING! :)
