This year is LC’s first Halloween. I am very excited about this. The hubster and I have decided that she is going to be a pumpkin for her first Halloween. We came to this decision as a result of the fact that while I was preggo my mom bought the outfit and thus it was free and paid for. The other day my sister Lucentabella and I put the outfit on her to see if it fit. This is what she looks like!
My little pumkin pie! I could just eat up all of her yummy sweetness!
Also I got her this pumpkin hat at Target for a dollar! OMG IT’S SO CUTE!
So also as a part of the Halloween experience I took nuthead to this place called Critter Creek Farm . While I did catch some great pics of the little nuthead this place SUCKED! First of all when we arrived I was driving into the “entrance” and was greeted by a thick cloud of smoke. Apparently someone decided that this was the time and place to burn a massive pile of leaves. Um…. no. There are little children around who would rather not inhale that nastiness. So we park the car and I strap her into her stroller
So excited! Poor girl has no idea of whats to come... Oh to be young again 🙂
So we head on into the “farm.” We are immediately presented with a little shack where we paid ten dollars for a “hay ride.” We will get more into this is a little bit. The playgroup I am with all pay our money and head on in for an adventure. Hmmmmm…… First of all this place DOES NOT look like it did on it’s website. There was a playground but it was all disgustingly dirty. Now, I get that a playground is going to have dirt. But, my gosh take a hose to it once in a while and wash the crap off! No one wants to sit thier kid in a swing covered with at least an inch of dirt. Anywho, I decide that I want to get some pics of Nuthead and her friends. So here they are:
Becks stylin' and profilin'
Nuthead and her BF Sam
Charles feeding the goat

See she really is a model! I mean LOOK AT HER!

Liam NOT AT ALL interested in the lame pumpkin patch
At this point I feel that I should warn you that at this farm there is an evil rooster. He totally attacked Liam’s daddy and put a massive gash in his leg with it’s Talons. Apparently for no reason at all. So if you go there and see this guy RUN!:
Evil Evil Evil Rooster. Don't mess with me. I'll fry you up and not feel guilty at ALL!
After the rooster attack we all decide that it’s time for the “Hay Ride” the owners have been raving about. The owners warn us that “it’s a little muddy so if you guys don’t want to go we can just give the kids a pumpkin each.” We decide that we will brave it. It can’t be that bad right? Pumpkin patches are supposed to be a little muddy and it can’t be worse than the rest of the farm right? WRONG! We all board ourselves and kids on to the back of a flatbed with hay bales on it that is being pulled by a tractor. Keep in mind that it was a very muggy 88 degrees out. As soon as we get on the ride it starts to rain. Great…… now I’m all sweaty and wet. AWESOME! No pics of me please 🙂 We finally arrive at what is supposed to be this “great pumpkin patch.” IT’S AN F’ING SWAMP! OMG! Seriously that is not “just a little muddy.” That is ankle deep water with what appears to be about 20-30 grapefruit size pumpkins halfass strewn about. Thankfully the two dads on the trip volunteer to get off and get pumpkins for each of the kids so us moms can keep them somewhat clean and out of the swamp. Well, then the owner dude tells us that we have to get off so he can turn the tractor around. Nice….. We all get off, he turn the tractor around and we all reload. Only somehow my child who CAN EVEN WALK gets completely dirty????????? WTF?????? Finally we head back to the main area. On our way back we get stuck trying to go up some tiny hill. We all were thinking we were going to have to hike back, but thankfully we got unstuck and made it safely back. After that we all left never to return again.
