Bobo's first Halloween was great! We (finally... since we've been talking about going every year since we were married) visited Cornbelly's, where we were blessed through the ambient music with the ever-important knowledge that pumpkins don't have bones (...), and then a few days later visited a much smaller in scale pumpkin patch nearer by. The Boy seemed to enjoy the free one about as much as the other one (this year at least), so maybe we'll just stick to that kind of thing for a while. Cornbelly's had its pluses (for example, the food was delicious), but it had its equal share of the ridiculous (for example, the food was mostly way too expensive... what do they think this is, Disneyland??). I was disappointed that the touted "Duck Races" did NOT feature real ducks, and as for that "Animal Band"... let's just say that I think Lester's Possum Park has better audio-animatronics. Eep! Curtain those poor things up when they power down!
|His favorite part of Cornbelly's was eating my hat. Also, we only cheated a little bit to get through the maze (and still called it a victory).|
|The hayride was a little more entertaining than expected, and also FREE.|
|I think using his hands and feet as templates for the face was genius. Also, I shall never again carve a pumpkin without one of those kits. Those itty-bitty knives are amazing.|
Happy Halloween, Boy! You made it more fun than ever it has been! One day we'll take you trick-or-treating for real.
P.S. It should also be noted that our usually annual Halloween 5K at the Hale did not happen this year, for the very good reason that they decided not to have it... Yeah, there are reasons, but they are lame, and we were annoyed. We'll just see if we join them for their winter race in February!
