Halloween Family Fun

I've never really cared much for Halloween. Becoming a parent has definitely changed the game for me. As a family we have so much fun and with each year it just gets better. Seeing our son in costume is so cute! His excitement rubs off on us. This year we decided to really get into the spirit and get into costume ourselves!

We visited the pumpkin patch, decorated our home (our kid's idea), decorated pumpkins, and went trick or treating of course!

Meet the Life by Cynthia family: Little Captain America, Mommy the Witch, and Daddy Wolverine!

Our pumpkin patch adventure this year took place at Oma's Pumpkin Patch in Lakeside, CA. The Pumpkin Patch is on the Van Ommering Dairy.  Guests can enjoy many family oriented activities including a hay ride and a dairy farm tour.  On the day of our visit a calf was born earlier that morning.  We got to see the little one. Watch our family video to take a peek at her too. It was a little crowded and a little hot but all in all we had a great time.



I would LOVE to hear about your Halloween!

    1. Lexie - I know right?! We could have been a super hero family. I will definitely plan better for next year! We were just happy that our mom and dad costumes were less than $10 each. We spent a bit more on Captain America. Worth it!
