I love when great memories result from impromptu plans.
It’s the day before Halloween, but we didn’t have a pumpkin. Procrastination at its finest. The Mini Athlete’s school even has a Pumpkin Patch, but I didn’t make it over there until today when we picked him up. The good thing about waiting until the last minute? The pumpkins were half off!
I had great visions of taking pumpkin patch photos like we did last year, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Oh well. Can you believe this was one year ago?
Thankfully his class did take a “field trip” to the Pumpkin Patch and we got this cute photo of him from his teacher.
Today we were all business. We found a nice sized pumpkin and then headed to Amma and Grandpa’s house. My mom had bragged on Facebook earlier in the day that she had two pots of soup cooking on the stove so I took that as my cue to invite my family over to their house for dinner.
They can’t say no to spending time with their grandson!
We brought our pumpkin over and while we ate, Grandpa got to work.
We dressed the Mini Athlete in one of Grandpa’s t-shirts…
And headed outside where hilarity ensued.
Let’s just say he wasn’t a fan of the ooey, gooey mess inside the pumpkin.
We came inside and Grandpa carved a face in the pumpkin. Awesome job, Grandpa!
Another wonderful evening at Amma and Grandpa’s house.
I warned my mom that this may become an annual tradition.
Homemade soup and pumpkin carving with Amma and Grandpa the night before Halloween?
It doesn’t get much better than that.
