We had a great Halloween this year.

Adam always takes off from work on Halloween because it's his favorite day of the year. I had to work before and after school, but we had the middle of the day to go out.

We went to the zoo.

I am pretty sure Jayden's favorite thing at the zoo was the vending machines. We would walk him over to the polar bears and he would walk right back over to the vending machines. He wanted to press all the buttons.

After the zoo we went to our favorite apple mill to get apples, cider, and fried cakes.

Then we went home to carve pumpkins.

Jayden was hilarious. We laughed the entire time. He kept putting the insides of the pumpkins back into the cleaned out ones.

Then he decided to take a bite out of one of the pumpkins.

I guess he liked it because he took bites out of all the pumpkins.

Despite our baby goat trying to eat all the pumpkins, we did manage to carve three.

Adam's pumpkin.

We didn't plan on taking Jayden trick-or-treating because he's so young. We were just going to have him help us give candy out to kids that came to our house.

But then I saw a few kids his age and they looked like they were having so much fun, so I took Jayden to a couple houses right across the street. He loved it and the neighbors were happy to see him.

We have always had fun on Halloween. I love giving out candy to trick-or-treaters and seeing their costumes. But, this year was the best. Who knew having Jayden's "help" with pumpkins and just bringing him across the street for a few minutes would result in one of the best nights of my life. We had so much fun.


  1. He is SOOOOOO adorable. I'm in love with your little giraffe/goat. Glad you had a great Halloween! <3

  2. I am glad you had such a wonderful Halloween! And many more! I love the pumpkin carvings! I love taking the kids to the zoo in costume...it is such fun.

  3. I love the giraffe. I really wanted Mea to be a giraffe her first Halloween, but they were all too short for her long legs! Her "giraffe feet" were high waters. She was a ladybug that year instead.

  4. As always he is just adorable! Love your pumpkins too!

  5. Oh, the cuteness is intoxicating :)
