Fall fun!

We've been enjoying the CO Pumpkin Patch operating at the south end of the campground for the past month and a half:  hay maze, slides, corn box, rubber ducky races, petting zoo, face painting, pony rides, gourd launching, golf cart races, tire swings and more! ( . . . and pumpkins of course!).  It's been a fun job for Emily and Levi (and even for me on a few occasions) to help them out.

We enjoyed making silly jack-o-lantern foods, carving pumpkins . . . and eating toasted pumpkin seeds (the BEST part!!).  Emily and her friend, Drew, even tried a highly complicated and messy "melted crayon" pumpkin - which actually turned out quite cool!  A Halloween highlight for us is returning to our old neighborhood and spending the evening with our favorite former neighbors & friends (the Ulloms).
