happy pumpkins

Added on by Jordan Martone.

joe and i got our halloween started early this year in the most fun way possible. we went to a halloween carnival! and not just any halloween carnival. this carnival was enormous. the entire valley showed up to this thing. there were haunted houses, food, kiddo games, and the best corn maze i'd ever seen!

it started with a tractor shuttle from the parking lot to the main gate and joe climbing to the top of the hay bales. (i immediately referenced to mulan when that silly soldier says: "i'm yao, king of the rock!")

this corn maze was at least 8 feet tall and very impressive. and we went at nighttime so it was completely dark. it added to the spook. now that i think about it, i don't think i've ever been in a corn maze before... this thing was enormous, shaped like a pumpkin, and took at least 35-40 minutes to get through. 

this thing made my halloween, people.

nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see...

apparently i smile the same way in every picture?

and you see why joe's nickname is "eyebrows"...

we pranced around, we got lost in some corn, we ooo-ed and ahhh-ed at the sparkly, twinkly, disney-esque lights, and we bought an extraordinarily overpriced pumpkin. all in the name of halloween. 

and it was so worth it.

joe said it best: "i can't remember the last time i did something like this. why don't we do this more often?" 

yes! why not?! i hadn't felt so much like a kid in a very long time.

i hope you are all having a wonderfully spooky pumpkin day and that you get all the kit-kats and none of the tootsie rolls (who needs those?). 

happy halloween!
