Well, believe it or not, Halloween (and the month of October) has come and gone and we’re on brink of a very, very busy final two months of the year.
But until we countdown to Turkey Day and the rest of the holiday season, let’s revisit all the autumn festivities of the last few weeks just one more time.
Boo! at the Zoo
Two weeks back we made a trip out to Brookfield Zoo for the autumn Boo! at the Zoo event, and it definitely got us into the Halloween spirit.

The following weekend, we were off to South Barrington for our first ever trip to Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm, escorted by veterans Pat and Giorgia.

Decorate that Pumpkin
The very next day after the pumpkin farm, it was time to dress-up…our pumpkin, that is.
Seeing as it was much cleaner (and easier) than gutting the thing and carving it up, we went with the Mrs. Potato Head treatment instead.

Of course, all of that build up led to the main event. Halloween!
While the weather almanac will report that it rained nearly non-stop from Wednesday evening through to Halloween night itself, it was all smiles indoors for our little pirate.

All She Wrote
And that’s how we made it here, the start of November.
As for the next two months, we’ve got quite a bit ahead of us:
- Fall road trip to Door County
- Turkey Day
- Christian’s 3rd Birthday Party
- Kris’ Great-Grandmother’s 100th Birthday Party
- Cindy’s Grandfather’s 90th Birthday Party
- New Years
Hardly a moment’s rest in all of that, for sure.
But it’s all fun, and it will surely all come and go before we know it as well.
Until next time,
