Pumpkin Patch, Ghost trains and SuperMom!

I should  have worn a Big S this Halloween.   In fact, I was so tired I am only getting around to blogging about  this now, nearly 2 weeks later.
Our Halloween festivities included a visit to the Stanley Park Ghost Train and Spooky Barn, and of course the Richmond Country  Farm Pumpkin  Patch.
However, the trip to the pumpkin patch I ventured on all by myself..well me and my little ones.  What was I thinking????  I had nothing to do and because we hadn’t  gotten a pumpkin yet, I thought we could just go to the farm, pick a pumpkin  and be on our merry way.  NO!  Although all the hay and farm animals and displays are awesome and easy enough  to walk around, I did not see any pumpkins.  In fact, you must take a hay ride on a wagon to get to the patch…I must have forgotten all this.  Here I was thinking, you show up, pose for cute pics and someone directs you to a bunch of little pumpkins.  So fumbling to put  Rayna in the Bjorn and handle Caiden (who took a liking to throwing apples in the pond that day) I did the bravest thing ever….I went on the wagon.  All the mud and glory of it later, we ended up with 3 cute pumpkins and a very happy guy.
I didn’t  get the glorious awesome pictures I dreamed of but when I look back, it actually shows a wonderfully busy yet festive Halloween.
But next year I am only going to dress  as a Superhero, not be one.  Hehehe

We are always taking the pictures, so we asked the guys to take a picture of us with the wee ones…this is the best shot they got, thanks guys.
