This was our second year attending the pumpkin festival at Van Hoosen Farm which is just around the corner from our house. The boys really enjoyed it last year and had a great time again. Unfortunately we have all been feeling under the weather this past week, so our time there was cut short because Momma felt like passing out in the unusual heat combined with a head cold from hell.

We returned later that night because that is the best part of the whole festival. After hundreds of people spend the day carving their pumpkins and lining them up on the nearly two hundred year old stone wall you return at night to see them all lit. It's pretty magical, even when your thirty five years old. To see hundreds, if not a thousand lit jack o lanterns on this old stone wall surrounded by a street of historic homes's a sight to be seen and experienced. The boys love finding their pumpkin and then checking out all the creative pumpkins that people carved. They each had their favorites and you could just feel their excitement and wonder.
