Pre-Halloween Fun


We really stretched out the Halloween celebration (Dave was thrilled...) and visited our first pumpkin patch at the beginning of the month and then my mom and the boys visited one more just a few days ago. They're at such a great age this year and loved the jumpy houses, corn maze (though W did cry when he got lost) and of course picking out the pumpkins.

While the Half Moon Bay pumpkin patches are well-known, traffic is awful heading in and out of the area each weekend in October, so we decided to avoid that and head north to Nicasio for our weekend pumpkin patch visit.

 








First time getting our faces (or hand) painted.


I was amazed at how still they both sat




The following weekend was the GGMG Halloween party in Golden Gate Park. More jumpy houses and more face painting, this time in costume.






Then the next weekend was the SFPOM Halloween party. 




Finally our last pumpkin patch visit of the season. We love visiting Lemos Farm in Half Moon Bay, but as mentioned, wouldn't attempt on a weekend as it would be way to crowded and take forever to get there. They do discounts during the week so my mom and I took them last Monday and while not too busy, there were still a lot of people there. My mom came with us here last year too so it was fun to see how much more they appreciate it this year. No easier getting photos this year though...

 


Yes, this is the best one we got...





And finally... their first pumpkin carving.





Just waiting for them to wake up so we can head out for our first round of trick-or-treating to the shops on Sacramento St. Good practice for the main event tomorrow.
