On October 5, we went to Way Fruit Farm. We took a “hay ride” (a tractor pulling a trailer with wooden benches) to the pumpkin patch and all 3 of us picked our pumpkins. We had a blast even though it was 80 degrees and we were sweating! We then took the “hay ride” back to the parking lot and purchased apples and some other goodies in the store. Nolan found the “cornbox” and played with the Jon Deer tractors in there for a bit. He was very upset when we took him out of the cornbox.
On October 27, we carved our pumpkins. Nolan had a great time playing in the “guts” of the pumpkin (as I like to call them) while Mama and Dada carved their pumpkins. I saw a pumpkin on Pinterest that was carved with a drill, so we decided to give that a try this year. They turned out pretty well, I think!
Trying out his new winter hat (10/30/13):
We went to the Nittany Mall for trick-or-treat. It was a good thing we planned on the mall because it was rainy and cold that evening…not a good combination for a 14 month old trick-or-treating for the first time. The mall was perfect for Nolan this year! We put him down when we got there and he didn’t stop running until we left. Here he is as soon as we put him down:
It took Nolan a bit to figure out that people were handing out “snacks”. He ran into several stores, stopped in the middle of the store, danced to the music, and ran out. He finally got his first treat from the Deb store. They were giving out pretzels which were perfect for him:
We left right around 7:00 (Nolan was hot and tired) and I realized I never got a picture with him, so we tried for one after trick-or-treating. Yup, he’s wiggling out of my arms and trying to escape, but I like it:Trick-or-treating at the mall was a success. Nolan had a blast and Nevin and I had so much fun watching him have fun! We are looking forward to going there again next year!
