October is my favorite time of the year. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Every year we go to Half Moon Bay, pick out our pumpkins, visit the ocean and just have a great time.
Pumpkin picking doesn't really take us that long. Nothing like it takes us to find our christmas tree...but thats another post for another day. It usually the biggest pumpkins we can find that we take.
Then its off to the ocean. The ocean is one of my favorite places. I could sit and stare for hours, and thankfully Brian and the kids are just like me.
The following week we carved our lovely pumpkins. We spent the day carving, the children all did their own this year. Well ok, I helped William but the girls went solo and did a great job! Once we carved them, we put them outside and waited for dark. And of course I forgot to light them. So we wake up the sleeping children to see their lighted pumpkins and then usher them off to bed!
