Pumpkin Patch & Halloween

Autumn is our favorite time of year. We like to spend time outdoors and visit pumpkin patches and cider mills with The Fromans. Unfortunately, Halloween is just starting to catch on here in Germany and so there aren't many pumpkin patches or Halloween themed activities. We did find one place, though. Here's Carter with his "shades" on, ready for a ride in the wagon.

The pumpkin patch was really more of a working farm that had a huge produce store and fun and games for the kids. They did have a giant pumpkin pyramid, as you can see in this picture.

Some of the American families got together for an early Halloween celebration. Carter was the youngest of all the children there and so struggled to keep with the bigger kids and was scared of some of their costumes. It took us forever to get him into his own costume...but when we finally did, he was a cute little lion. We nicknamed him the "Cowardly Lion" (from the Wizard of Oz) since he was afraid of everyone else.
