Happy Halloween!

At left is one of our two pumpkins, along with the brain I carved out of a watermelon.

And the other pumpkin ... inspired by some photos at Pumpkin Way.

The kids trick or treated this evening and had a good time. Owen went as the Grim Reaper and Douglas was a soldier.

Earlier in the day we attended a rock concert put on by six kid bands who participated in Rock Band University. We knew some of the musicians. They did very well.

Pumpkin patch

We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday (Impossible Acres, right outside of Davis) and had fun picking out some pumpkins and seeing some cute animals.

There were many pumpkins to choose from.

It was a beautiful day.

Loads of pumpkins

Dan and the boys took a brief tractor ride around the farm.

They have a petting zoo there with lots of cute animals, including baby goats!

and chickens...

and of course everyone's favorite, kittens!

also piglets...

ducklings, a turkey, and a 9 day old calf.
