Fun At The Pumpkin Patch

Last Saturday evening, my daughter and I visited one of the many pumpkin patches in Las Vegas.

It was so much fun! My daughter said it was the best day ever! (In all honesty it’s a phrase she does like to use from time to time..lol.)

It wasn’t a huge Ferris Wheel, but that made it more scary, I think. You could hear it squeak, and make noises all the time. It was a beautiful sight being above everything at the top. We went on the Ferris Wheel one time, and they took us ten loops around the wheel, it was fun. We both enjoyed it. The first photo of the maze is taken from the top.

Enjoying the view fromt he top was an experience. My daughter is a daredevil when it comes to ride. She just made the minimum height restrictions to the Ferris Wheel.

I love seeing my daughter enjoying herself this immensely. She is so grateful for everything, and radiating joy. It’s contagious.

Do you have a favorite holiday? I couldn’t pick one. Maybe Thanksgiving, because of the message, and that it happens during my favorite time of the year. My daughter’s favorite is Halloween. She loves carving pumpkins and dressing up in a costume. I’ve taken a couple hours of work tomorrow, to go trick and treating with her. I’m excited about that. I tried to buy her a new costume last weekend, but she didn’t want any. She has a cheetah costume that she loves, and wants to wear. I guess it’s OK to be a cheetah for Halloween? If it makes her happy. She’s always been fascinated by big cats.

Are you excited about Halloween? Last year I took my daughter trick and treating in the countryside where we lived. Our adult neighbors were thrilled to meet all the neighbor kids. some had put a lot of effort into the Halloween feeling. It’s definitely going to be different this year. I’m hoping that she will get a good experience.

Happy (almost) Halloween!!

Love,

Ms Zen

  1. Halloween is a fun holiday for kids. I used to love dressing up and going door to door for candy in our small town. These days I go to the town parade to see all the kids in their costumes and view the judging and prize-giving (everyone gets one 😉 ). My favorites are the babies and toddlers – so cute!
    Have fun tomorrow!

  2. Halloween was one of the most enjoyable days of the year, in my childhood. It didn’t quite top Thanksgiving (which sometimes happened on my birthday) or Christmas, but it was a great time. I was something different each year. The three or four of us came home and dumped the candy on the dining room table, where Mom and Dad would examine each item, including the occasional apple, with a fine eye.
    Penny and I continued that practice, after I had taken our son around, with a few of his friends joining us on our rounds. Now that I am alone, I set up a table just off the street, so no one has to go up or down our sketchy driveway. About a dozen kids and teens come by, and get handfuls of treats per person.
