Pumpkinpalooza

Two years ago, we bought a pumpkin at a grocery store and called it a day; Carter was a two-month old preemie burrito, and we were just happy we remembered Halloween. Last year, I was determined to make up for the lapse. I took Carter to a pumpkin patch at the beginning of October and we carved some bomb pumpkins.

They all rotted two weeks before Halloween.

So, I dutifully went back to buy more pumpkins, intending to carve again. Those sat untouched by our front door until June. (I know, I’m amazed they didn’t rot away too!)

This year, Carter and his best bud, Massi, went to not one, but two different pumpkin patches: Webb Ranch in Portola Valley and Pastorino Farms in Half Moon Bay.

Andy, Carter and I had the best morning carving pumpkins and eating chocolate chip pancakes. At Carter’s request, we ate at “Boogie’s table” which made the food taste even better!
